EMDR Therapist & Counsellor Nottingham

Susan Smalley

Susan Smalley – EMDR Therapist & Counsellor, MA, MBACP Accred 

Hi, I am Susan Smalley a fully qualified EMDR therapist and BACP accredited counsellor. I work with adults of all ages from the Sage Therapy Centre and online.

Sometimes the daily stresses in life can build to a point where it impacts on your daily life and you feel unable to cope anymore. This maybe affecting your relationship with those closest to you and your enjoyment of life generally. You may be feeling anxious about the little things, experiencing low mood or unable to feel motivated. Maybe you are struggling to process difficult traumas from the past that are affecting your self-confidence and belief in yourself. Perhaps you’ve been drinking more than you would normally, sleeping less, spending more and have realised you need support to make changes in your life. 

I will offer you a confidential space where you can explore what is happening for you. I use a person-centred approach, which I hope will help you to make sense of your previous life experiences and current circumstances. I will listen empathically and without judgment as you explore what is going on for you. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is essential, so I work relationally to build trust and safety. 

I am a trained EMDR therapist. Whilst EMDR is in no way a shortcut it can offer clients the opportunity to process traumatic memories without having to speak too much about your experience if you do not wish to. This can be comforting for clients to know if they fear opening up something particularly difficult in therapy.  However, you will need to share information about your past so we can establish if it’s safe to work together in this way.  We can explore this more if you wish to book a free telephone or Zoom introductory call. 

Below is a useful link to give you a quick insight of what to expect from EMDR: 


Whatever the issue(s) you are currently struggling with, please do get in contact, by email or telephone. If I think I can help you, we will start with a free initial conversation to see if we ‘gel’. I assure you I will always work with your best interests at the heart of what I do.
