Sue Wedderburn Frankfort
PG Dip Counselling Psychology (Keele University) MBACP, ACC (reg. member)
I am a professionally qualified and experienced counsellor working with individuals in North Shropshire and Staffordshire.
Prior to starting formal counselling training in 2011, I enjoyed an interesting and varied career encompassing the private, public and charity sectors, finishing in a senior charity executive role in 2015 and have since been involved, alongside counselling, with management consultancy work - particularly helping charities and community initiatives to work better.
I am interested in the development of individuals and organisations and have worked with organisations going through major change which is usually very stressful for those involved.  I have developed particular skills in dealing with work related stress and anxiety and have an interest in career coaching and now, life coaching.
I am passionate about empowering individuals to find their solutions and I will call on the various skills, tools and approaches I have acquired, to work with you to find the best blend of approaches to suit your needs.
In addition to my private practice and management consultancy work, I also work in a voluntary capacity as a counsellor for a charitable counselling service across Staffordshire and North Shropshire.
