Counselling Consett

National Counselling Society Accredited Member

Hi my name is Sue Richardson and I am the lead counsellor and therapist for northernlightscounselling. We offer a safe, reliable, professional and confidential therapeutic counselling service. We provide counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and a service to organisations.

I have been qualified for over 20 years as a counsellor having first been accredited in 1993 and I have worked in a number of roles which have given me a broad experience of counselling and therapies. I have over 20 years experience in the NHS working in a variety of fields.  I am a member of the National Counselling Society and can be found on their members register.

I work in line with their national code of ethics and standards.

 northernlightscounselling uses associate counsellors all qualified and accredited by a professional body. Clients have access to both male and female counsellors with a range of specialties and experience.

We are based in the  Derwentside area but we work  with clients right across the North East.

The focus of northernlightscounselling is on the client and on our ability to help and support them through a difficult time. We are totally confidential, private and never judge anyone who comes to us for help. We pride ourselves on offering the latest research based therapies to support our clients.
