My name is Sue and I have recently completed a Diploma in Counselling at the Albany Centre. Most of my working life has been in hospital pharmacy, and the pharmaceutical industry. During my career, I came to recognise that drug therapy is only one aspect of treating the many mental health issues that so many people experience in their lives. I decided to train as a counsellor because it seemed to me that counselling offers so much more than 'papering over the cracks'. I believe it provides a safe environment in which to explore your feelings and start to heal painful experiences.
