Sue is a senior psychotherapist and supervisor with more than 20 years experience; and a particular interest in generational and developmental complex trauma. She offers short and long term therapies and supervision for individuals, couples and trainees.
Sue worked in senior management in education; ran a counselling service for clergy and their families and many years in the NHS in secondary care mental health, working with adults with severe and enduring mental health difficulties. During her years in these posts she deepened her knowledge and interest in early developmental difficulties and its impact on children and their understanding of themselves as they grew into adulthood and its resulting impact on their quality of life and resulting relationships. Sue uses Psychodynamic understanding, Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and EMDR models in order to work with complex trauma and preverbal disturbance. These interventions can be time-limited or longer-term and work collaboratively to address early life patterns and trauma and how they enact or disrupt present life choices.
Sue has been a Trustee for ACAT with particular responsibility for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Ethics. She was Vice Chair for the Association for Anglican Counselling (APC); and is governed by UKCP Codes of Conduct.
