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.
