Susan is highly intuitive and spiritual in her approach.
All individuals have a healthier place within themselves where they feel centered and can thrive. Therapy helps us connect with that healthier place within where we can then come to understand who we really are and make life choices that are reflective of who we really are for both ourselves and in relationship with others.
Susan has a background as a trauma therapist and is trained in EMDR.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was designed originally to alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories. As an alternative to talk therapy, EMDR therapy helps clients attend emotionally to disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus (hand movements, beeps or tones). As this happens, for reasons believed by a Harvard researcher to be connected with the biological mechanisms involved in the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, internal associations arise and the client begins to process the memory and disturbing feelings. With successful EMDR therapy, the client gains insights and painful events are transformed on an emotional level through their own accelerated intellectual and emotional processes.
Susan has the capacity to hear what is not spoken.
Youth do experience challenging and sometimes traumatic experience in their lives. When this occurs, they may respond by communicating their stress or distress through their behaviour and this may manifest as: acting out, school performance declining, losing interest in activities they previously enjoyed, friendship problems, becoming withdrawn, depression, anxiety, anger problems, power struggles, mood swings, avoidance and substance abuse.
Youth can learn to choose adaptive ways to cope with their distress and lead healthier lives.
Children can learn to be resilient and lead healthier lives.
Susan has been a school counsellor for 11 plus years and brings a breadth and depth of knowledge, skill and experience to her work with children, youth and their parents.
