Counsellor Susan Rumford, B.A., M.A. Th:S.C.P. RP.

Susan is a counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice – she provides virtual and phone counselling sessions.

Virtual and phone counselling is convenient – No travel time or waiting room!

You can meet with Susan from the comfort and privacy of your home, or the convenience of your office, (or your car). Also, there is no need to take time off work or book a babysitter. All you need is access to a computer and an internet connection, or your phone. And it doesn’t matter where you live!
Susan is friendly, approachable, empathetic, encouraging and sensitive. Along with her professional training and affiliations, Susan brings to her practice the life experiences of a wife, mother, widow, single parent, and subsequently, a parent of a blended family. Today she also has first-hand experience as a primary caregiver.

These life experiences, as well as her education in counselling and coaching, have enabled her to develop the skills of: empathy for people with special needs, whether mental, spiritual or physical; compassion for people who find themselves alone, lonely, or without adequate resources or the ability to face the daily battle of life; and respect for those who courageously seek help to overcome their challenges, disappointments and failures.

Susan’s desire is to help people who find themselves in times of crisis, in life transitions, or in difficult challenges, to clarify and achieve their goals, overcome obstacles, define where they’re going in life, and meet new challenges with confidence.

She strives to help them get balance in life so that they can reach their full potential as unique individuals. Susan uses a variety of counselling modalities to help her clients achieve these goals.
