Social and Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) Lead

Hello, my name is Susan Withers.  I am the Social and Emotional Mental Health Lead at Staplegrove Church School.

I am a BACP Accred Counsellor and a qualified teacher.  I have been counselling children, young people and adults in Somerset for over 20 years.  In addition to my vocation I love spending time with my dogs, horses and chickens, reading, walking and drawing.  It's no wonder I have incorporated all of these into my therapy provision.

If you have any questions then please do get in touch,
