Susan Quilliam Counsellor , WC1X
When love relationships are unfulfilling, the whole of life can be unfulfilling. I understand that.
I am a relationship coach and my aim is to support my clients to have the best relationship they can possibly have. I offer specialist coaching for individuals and couples to find, build and enhance their intimate relationships; to overcome relationship crisis; to rekindle fading love; or where necessary to bring relationships to a healthy end.
What does coaching involve? My approach is very down-to-earth. We explore your worries and concerns at a deep level, but also work actively and practically to help you see things in new and more useful ways, and to increase your relationship skills. I follow up every session with full notes of what we've discussed, and usually set homework for you to do between sessions.
What have my clients said? "Susan created a caring and trusting space where I could identify the past choices that stopped me getting what I want. By my fifth session I had begun a new relationship with a partner who has the same goals." “Susan helped me understand and get past my barriers to intimacy; my partner and I have discovered a new and wonderful side of our relationship.”
If you feel I might be able to help, email me and we can arrange either for a free initial 30-minute phone call or a first session where we can discuss the challenges you're meeting and see if we'd like to work together.
Training and qualifications
If you feel I could help you, we can begin with a free 15-minute initial phone call or a paid initial two-hour session to see whether we would like to work together. If there isn't a 'fit' I am happy to support you to find alternative help.
Rather than working to one 'counselling hour' (that is, 50 minutes), I work in longer sessions of 1 hour and 45 minutes because I find the work goes more quickly and effectively that way. I charge £135 (London) and £110 (Cambridge) for each session, (very) extensive notes and homework.
I am delighted when, as sometimes happens, your issue can be resolved in a single session, but most work will take several sessions to resolve - however we are talking months rather than years! Many of my clients then return if they hit different life challenges, or attend every few months for ongoing guidance. My door is always open.
King's Cross Road
At my Kings' Cross Rooms, I work on Wednesdays from 14.30 until 22.00. In Cambridge I work by arrangement, including weekend sessions if needed.
Cambridge is 45 minutes by train from King's Cross. On A14 and M11. Paid car park next door. No easy wheelchair access; this is a residential property.
