Additional Information

Sue has worked in community psychiatric rehabilitation services for over ten years. Prior to that she worked in disability services and outdoor education. Sue has a longstanding interest in personal development, meditation, healthy life-styles, and living a balanced life. She emphasises the importance of acknowledging her clients strengths as they work on the issues that brought them to therapy, and believes that people are capable of change and growth throughout their lives.

Sue often draws on attachment theory-making sense of current relationship patterns and beliefs about self in light of early attachment relationships. Sue also draws on family systems theories because she finds that people are often best understood as part of their broader family dynamics and these dynamics help shape the individual. She uses a combination of insight-oriented therapies and cognitive and behavioural strategies and she adapts her approach according to her clients needs.

Sue works with both adults and adolescents.
