TESTIMONIALS

CHARLIE

Sue’s approach to mental health is one of positive engagement.

Her life experience and developing skill set provides a sage and secure environment to explore anxiety and to take ownership of it.

This journey is undertaken in individual steps to facilitate self-awareness and to fulfil small goals to enhance development of a pragmatic mind set.

This experience has given me the confidence, empowerment, and the ability to recognise triggers to progress through difficult times and to move forwards.

Thank you sue for everything; you’ve been a real inspiration.

I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity by Sue to experience some Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions, during her training period.

I was suffering with stress, anxiety, pain, and sleep issues after having a total knee replacement and then suffering a stroke.

 

Sue explained about the different sections of the brain and how they work; and how positive

thinking can benefit and prepare you to cope with life’s experiences.

 

I responded to Sue’s soothing and calming therapy sessions and was sometimes so relaxed I

would drift off whilst listening to her soft reassuring voice. Sue gave me a recording to listen to at home, which has helped enormously with my sleep issues. Sleeping better has improved my energy levels, reduced my anxiety and stress levels.  

I awake ready to face what each new day brings more calmly and confidently.

I would highly recommend Sue to anyone needing support in any of the areas that Sue has helped me.

As somebody who suffers with both depression and anxiety, along with a number of chronic health conditions, I was pessimistic that anything would help much.  I’ve done all the usual things that are recommended with regards to diet and exercise but nothing has got me out of the rut of negative thinking.

 Sue was recommended through a friend of a friend and I felt I had nothing to lose.  I immediately liked her and found her voice really soothing and calming.

I did not feel at all judged, in fact quite the opposite, it felt as though she had known me for a very long time.

Sue would spend time explaining to me how the mind works and how the primitive mind can influence us more than we would like.  She explained in an easy to understand way how we think and how it is we can be our own best friend or worst enemy. 

Sue is very patient and will listen with understanding and empathy but will politely steer you in the right direction if she feels it’s in your interest.

She will ask you a couple of questions that will encourage positive thinking and now I ask myself these questions daily and automatically!

At first with the hypnotherapy I found that I was a little uncomfortable and it felt difficult to switch off, it’s an alien thing for me to be doing and I was way too alert throughout. That said Sue has such a soothing voice that it was still very therapeutic.

By the second or third time I found that I was drifting off more and becoming more deeply relaxed. Sometimes I would feel so relaxed that I remembered what it felt like before having chronic pain.  I didn’t want to wake!

When I did wake up I felt lighter, I felt as though some information had gone into my head and that my ”computer” was just dealing with it and processing it without me having to think about much.  I found I was in a better mood and more able to cope with the day ahead.

A few weeks later the combination of the weekly sessions with Sue and the track I was listening to at home led me to a more positive place.

I now know that I have control over my thoughts and my life. I know how to give myself a “brain break”. And I am looking forward to using these new found skills going forward with my whole family. 

Of course I know Sue is there for me to book any further therapy with should I feel it is necessary. 

I would thoroughly recommend Sue as a therapist, she really knows her stuff, puts people at ease, and is very skilled at what she does.

CLAIRE

When I had my first meeting with Sue, I was slightly sceptical on if I could relax. I tend to worry a lot and find it hard to unwind.
Right from the start Sue put me at ease, explained what was going to happen and was open and friendly.
She explained about how our brain works and I learned a lot about my own negative behaviour and why I repeat the same things.
Thanks to Sue’s professionalism and full knowledge on anxiety she guided me through and after our first session I relaxed.
Now every day I try to use the techniques she taught me and I feel my life and my family’s life is definitely calmer and more relaxed.
I cannot recommend Sue enough, and will forever be grateful for her help and guidance.
