My name is Susan Trussell - welcome to my website. I work as a counsellor in Banbury and Deddington with adults, young people and children. 

Sometimes, whatever your age, it is hard to talk to friends or family about what you are going through and how it makes you feel. Advice given, though often well meant, can be confusing, perhaps coming from people who are too close and trying to ‘fix’ things. 

The counselling room is a place to offload. It is a place to get a different perspective; to regain some lost strength and to gain a better understanding of where you are now and make positive choices for the future with someone who cares and won’t judge you.

My approach is to use common sense and is simple. I follow you and your needs, working alongside you in a safe, confidential way, listening carefully, reflecting back and clarifying confusion. This counselling process helps you to deal with the things that need to be changed and to come to terms with those that can’t, to help you move forward.
This website will tell you a little about me and what you can expect from counselling.
