Client Experience

I work with my clients in a manner that allows them the space they need to express their concerns, fears, ambitions, and selves in a way that may not always be accessible to them in their daily lives.

The idea of each session is to have clients leave the room with something to take away that might offer something of value to them in any shape or form.

Counselling Approach

I use an integrative counselling approach that allows me to work with clients with varying needs by bringing together all theoretical and practical experiences available to me.

Almost like mixing together all the different elements of different counselling approaches to find what fits each client the best.

Background

My training in the counselling field began as a student counsellor for university students, followed by a clinical psychology placement that brought me face-to-face with war survivors and migrants.

Subsequently, I had the opportunity to work in community based settings as a mental health worker, before shifting my focus on counselling and psychotherapy, wherein my training and student placement was within the trauma and bereavement space.

Tools

In my practice, I bring elements from these, and other modalities:

  • Brief psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapy
  • Emotion-focused therapy
  • Integrative therapy
  • Person-centred counselling

  • Anger management
  • Family therapy

Counselling Services

Client Experience

I try to ensure that my clients feel respected and heard when being in session with me.

I also try to evoke a sense of agency, a sense of hope that maybe “yes, I actually can do something about THE PROBLEM and that  THE PROBLEM is not just happening to me but I can happen to THE PROBLEM too!”

Looking at exceptions and strengths is a big part of that as it opens our eyes to solutions that are already working. It instils confidence in our own ability and is a way of thinking that will be helpful in any situation that presents itself as difficult in the future.

I always try to ensure the client finds an as open as possible environment to talk freely about anything and feel comfortable and safe when discomfort arises.

My main aim during any session is that my clients take note of their own often extraordinary strengths and find or regain the trust in themselves to be able to get through difficult situations and come out strong and maybe a bit wiser on the other side.

Counselling Approach

My approach to working with any client coming to see me, be it a family, a couple or an individual is getting to know and understand each one of them and their unique perspective.

I will always invite discussion around context because I believe nothing exists in a vacuum. For example anxiety may exist in one context but not in another. Looking at the presenting concerns this way  allows me and my clients to investigate the ins and outs of what it is that brought them to counselling and how they would like it to be different.

I believe that the answers are often within my clients and it is my job to assist them in uncovering them through questions, exercises and open discussions. The same goes for looking at the context when the problem doesn’t exist. What is different then? Who is around? How does the family, couple, individual manage then? What makes it easier under those circumstances?

Finding the client’s strengths is a central part of my work as these are the tools readily available to the client to use to their advantage when dealing with a tricky or difficult situation.

When working with a client I will always check in to see how we are going and if what we are talking about is still relevant to the client’s goals they came to counselling for.

Qualifications

Susann Bruechle has a Diploma of Professional Counselling and Post Graduate Diploma in Systemic Family Therapy (Australia) and Rehabilitation Psychology Diplom (Germany).

Susann is a member of the Australian Counselling Association and registered with the Australian Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Client Experience

First and foremost I want my client to know that in the session I have heard them, and maybe it may be the first time someone has heard them.

I endeavour to make sure that the client leaves a counselling session with many tools and strategies for the issue that is aired in counselling.

Plus, I try to ensure for  most part  that individuals and couples leave the session maybe understanding for the first time knowing where they came from.

What I mean by this is: We all come from a family or origin and I want my clients to understand in many many cases that the issues that they have bought them to counselling probably started right back there in their family of origin. This being said, now that they are adults it is up to them to learn how to unlearn these behaviours or learn how to manage them.

Therapeutic Approach

I try to be approachable and easy to talk to about anything – even the hard things!

I use real terms when explaining things, not clinical terms.

I am honest with my clients, with the way they are presenting themselves – and I explain to them that the way I am seeing and hearing them, can be completely different to the way they visualise themselves presenting. This allows clients to reflect on how others in the family or community view them, and it may not be how they want to be represented.
