About me

Sue sees clients at her practice near Eastbourne and also offers sessions via Zoom, which her clients find just as effective.

Qualifying in 2001 as one of the first Human Givens therapists, Sue has helped clients with many different issues, including:

Depression,  low self-esteem or self-confidence,  anxiety and panic attacks, domestic abuse,  OCD, phobias,  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or  "just feeling stuck".

Sue absolutely believes that anyone can change their lives for the better.  Making use of her clients’ imagination and cognitive mind, Sue’s style is empathetic, honest, non-judgemental and straightforward.  

The sessions last an hour or so and, because Human Givens is a brief and solution-focussed therapy, the number of sessions is kept to a minimum.    To support her clients in between sessions and going into the future, Sue has developed a number of information/exercise sheets, saying “there’s no point in paying me for progress you can be making at home”.

Training, qualifications & experience

Sue successfully works with clients of all ages and from a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities.  Sue provides individual counselling as well as couple and family therapy.

Most of Sue’s clients are now self-referrals, having been recommended by previous clients.  Sue also receives referrals from Occupational Health Departments, the Red Poppy Company, PTSD Resolution (a charity specifically for military personnel) and other Human Givens colleagues.

Qualifications: Human Givens Diploma, MA in Change Management, PGDip in Just What We Need (coaching programme for parents), PGDip in Business Research

Sue has an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
