And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom - Anais Nin
Hello, my name is Susan. I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, experienced in the field of addiction for the last seven years, working with issues such as substance addiction, alcoholism, co-dependency, debting, gambling and porn addiction and the recovery process from these addictive behaviours. I am familiar with the 12 Step process. I also work with depression and anxiety and life issues that you wish to focus on alone such as your work life and relationships.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy which is conducted on a regular basis, at the same time, weekly. My intention is to help you gain freedom from the long suffering, persistent behaviours, that are affecting your well-being, this may include the inner voice that is impacting your confidence to difficulties in relationship. Or explore what is underlying conditions such as depression and anxiety which may be isolating you from your social life, personal relationships or work life, for example, and look at ways in which we can work through these to help your life feel more purposeful and enjoyable again.
How I work?
Our sessions will begin with an assessment of one hour to one and half hours, which with a number of questions are asked so that we can establish if therapy is for you. And to look at what the life problem is that you wish to work with. This will follow with an arrangement of six sessions to explore what you want to look at it in the therapy process. During this time you can decide if you wish to go forward in the therapy.
As an Integrative therapist I am able to use a number of different approaches to help you gain clarity on what you are presenting for therapy. Overall, I am a Humanistic psychotherapist looking to help you express your best self. That part of you which may have got suppressed over many years because of taking care of your family; the pressures of your career or even a relationship that you have fought to keep.

I also offer personal development coaching, where we will can look at issues specifically such as compulsive spending or food issues, and issues to do with self worth, for example. These sessions are booked in blocks of six one hourly sessions
