Sue Dives MA(Psych & Couns), AdvDip, DipSpLD,
Training and ExperienceI have an MA degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling awarded by Middlesex University and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative
Psychotherapy gained after a 5 year training at The Minster Centre in London.
I gained my Senior Practitioner Diploma in Supervision from the Centre for Supervision and Team Development, London.
I also have knowledge of the neurological differences of ADD / ADHD, dyslexia and other similar
syndromes. In these areas I have a Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia) and a Certificate in Coaching
years ago I trained and worked at a local hospice as a bereavement counsellor.
As a registrant of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and a member of the
BACP I work within and adhere to ethical frameworks for good practice. An aspect of this is regular clinical consultation
and continuous professional development. I deepen and
expand my learning in the field of therapy by attending workshops, groups, further training and being actively involved
in a development and support group.
I am on the registers of both
the UKCP and the BACP. These registers have both been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
My therapy practice has included seeing people privately,
within a counselling service in Chelmsford, within the NHS and through Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs).
