This month, we welcome Susanna Wright Psychotherapy and Mollie, her Therapy Dog to our brand new offices in the Potting Shed West. Overlooking the Rear Walled Garden, they’ll be right next to the Estate Office and Meridian. In this short interview, we learn a little more about our newest arrival.
WHEN DID YOU START?
In 2013 I started a small private practice alongside working as a counsellor in the NHS. In 2015, I decided to focus solely on private work and established a practice in the Dearne Valley, South Yorkshire.
WHAT IS IT YOU OFFER?
I am an Integrative Relational Psychotherapist working with adults. I offer a space where people can work through current and/or historical aspects of their life that cause them concern or limitations. As a relational therapist, there is often a focus on how our relationships and sense of self in the world can promote or negatively impact our well-being and mental health.
The therapy I offer can include working with Mollie, my 6 year old cocker spaniel, and/or working in nature within the grounds at Nostell Priory. Not everyone will feel comfortable with this and the traditional talking therapy is always available, either face to face or online.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MOVE TO THE NOSTELL ESTATE?
The estate at Nostell provides an ideal location for offering therapy in both an indoor and outdoor setting. The grounds provide rich and diverse natural surroundings and a dog-friendly space so that Mollie can, if people choose, be involved in animal assisted therapy sessions, either inside or out.
WHEN WILL YOU BE JOINING US?
I will be moving to the estate from 1st September. Mollie and I have already been scoping out those special and secluded places and I am pleased to say she loves it here and we have received a warm welcome, whilst our space in Potting Shed West (near to Meridian) is finalised.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THE NOSTELL ESTATE TO OTHER BUSINESSES LOOKING FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY?
Definitely. I especially think the grounds offer a rare backdrop to the normal office-environment, that I am sure promotes a greater sense of well-being.
