About Sue

I have many years of counselling experience and yet still remain passionate about being a Therapist.

My personal style and philosophy of counselling is a reflection of my personal journey in a life borne out of suffering and survival, encouraging me to seize the day (“carpe diem”). Having the ability to be a truly integrative therapist I choose for the majority of my work to be a solution focused brief therapist.  The style of counselling is based on a collaborative relationship between client and counsellor, encouraging empowerment and hope.

My professional portfolio includes wide experience in the medical world, involvement in human resources, a commercial directorship, a non-executive member of a Board and service in the criminal justice system.

I am a qualified and experienced supervisor of individuals and groups.   I am committed to lifelong learning in order to enhance my practice and fulfil over and above the requirements for education, updating and personal supervision and development.

I am an associate to a number of Employer Assistance Providers offering therapy for employees and responding to emergencies through Critical Incident Debriefing.
