Sue’s therapy focus is adults and she specialises in both individual and relationship counselling. Sue is passionate about helping people heal as they work to better understand themselves and their relationship patterns and move towards making lasting changes in their life. She is experienced in working with a diverse range of issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, grief, life transitions and the legacies of trauma. Sue recognises that early experiences, particularly traumatic ones, can continue to impact people and their relationships throughout their life. Sue is experienced in sensitively working through these issues.
Sue enjoys working with couples and works from an emotionally focussed perspective. This approach helps couples to better understand their emotional patterns, how they respond together in conflict and the ways they disengage as a result of conflict. She then focuses on helping couples to gain perspective and be empowered to reconnect in more helpful ways. She also works with couples to improve their communication, so that they can express their emotions and needs safely within their relationship, particularly with challenging topics.
Sue uses a broad range of therapeutic approaches and can tailor therapy to suit the individual needs of each person. Her approaches include Trauma work, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Sue is known by her clients as a warm, respectful therapist who genuinely cares for her clients.
