About Me

My name is Susanne Hart. I am Bristol born and bred, I have lived here most of my life. I am a qualified counsellor with a diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC)

Apart from my private practice, I have also provided counselling services in Bristol for two local charities. I spent almost two years volunteering for The Southmead Project supporting people whose experience of neglect or abuse in childhood has led to drug and alcohol dependency. I have continued to support The Southmead Project by helping them organise a conference aimed at supporting survivors of sexual abuse in September 2014 and with the launch of The Wall of Silence exhibition in January 2016. In 2011, I set up a service with the WISH for a Brighter Future charity in South Bristol (now 4YP Bristol) and provided counselling services for survivors of domestic abuse. Unfortunately, this service is no longer available due to changes in local funding priorities.

I’m an Accredited Registrant with the National Counselling Society (NCS); a leading professional body for counselling in the UK and as such, I am subject to the NCS complaints procedures.
