Counselling. Supervision. Training.

A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Counselling and therapy for individuals in a safe, comfortable and private setting

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.

My name is Sue Fleming and I have worked as a therapist since 2009 with adults and young people.

I have worked in various settings such as schools, universities and different charities. My private practice began in 2014 and is located in Kings Heath, Birmingham.

I am also a clinical supervisor working with therapists at all stages of their professional journey.

I currently work as a freelance trainer writing and delivering training on 'Understanding Attachment' to foster carers, adoptive parents and therapists.

I am an accredited member of the BACP British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have a BA (hons) in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take - but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.

How can counselling help?

I can understand that you may feel daunted by the thought of counselling. You may have feelings of being lost, alone or stuck. My aim is to help you feel comfortable and able to work through any difficulties you may be experiencing in a safe, confidential space free from judgement, and with warmth and openness.

Therapy is the development of a collaborative relationship, where together we can explore what has bought you to counselling. The therapeutic relationship can be a unique opportunity to access the often untapped capacity of the individual. A chance to find clarity and make sense of psychological distress, creating a vision and direction towards a more meaningful existence. We may look at the events and circumstances in your life and how you have found ways of getting through these difficulties. I work from a trauma informed perspective , never discounting anything that has happened in your life. Together we can work towards a more authentic way of being.

What issues can counselling help with?

People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:



Attachment difficulties




Child-related issues

Cultural issues


Eating disorders



Personal development


Post-traumatic stress

Pregnancy related issues


Relationship issues

Self esteem

Sexual Identity



Supervision is a unique opportunity to view your therapeutic work in a safe, collaborative setting. I offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists from a person-centred and integrative perspective. My primary purpose as a supervisor is to give support and containment to enable growth as a practitioner.

The process of supervision gives us an insight into the client's world and how you interact within the therapeutic relationship. This enhances the value of the counselling process. Working from a supervisee-centred model I offer the same core conditions as in my counselling practice. Therefore I encourage supervisees to bring themselves and to collaborate together in an open, honest discussion.

I welcome counsellors at all stages of their journey, whether you are just starting out as a trainee or are an experienced therapist. I offer supervision online via Zoom or in person at my consulting room. Please call or email me for a chat so we can discuss your supervision needs.

Attachment Training

Attachment is the deep connection established between a child and caregiver that profoundly affects the child's development and ability to express and regulate emotions and develop relationships.

I offer online and face to face workshops on ‘Understanding Attachment’. I have been writing and delivering training since 2016. My knowledge and personal understanding of attachment fuels my passion for this subject.

I have a strong belief that children need to be heard and understood. This can be transformational for the development of healthier connections and relationships.

I offer bespoke training that incorporates experiential and theoretical learning.

Understanding Attachment

This training is for foster cares/adoptive parents or any professionals working in that field. The training delivers a deep insight into how early attachment difficulties impact physical, cognitive and psychological development. The workshops help us understand how a child relates to the world, themselves and how they form relationships. It includes PACE model and therapeutic parenting methods.

Understanding Attachment and Implications for Practice

This workshop is for non-qualified and qualified therapists. The training explores early loss and trauma on brain development. Different 'styles' of attachment and how your own attachment history can impact the therapeutic relationship. Furthermore, how the therapeutic relationship can help repair the early rupture of a difficult attachment.

Understanding Attachment in schools

This training is for teaching professionals The Workshop enables teaching professionals to understand challenging behaviours in the school environment. Learn about attachment difficulties and how that manifests in behaviour. Furthermore, learn how to reduce shame and help the child feel safe at school.

All training gains 4 hours of CPD and a certificate of attendance. If you would like more details regarding my workshops please contact me via email or telephone. I will be happy to discuss training that can be adapted to your needs.
