"In my experience Susie's work is much broader and deeper than working with a traditional counsellor. One of Susie's healing sessions is more like 4 or 5 counselling sessions!" Maria, 33
Heal with Susie offers counselling with a deeply healing difference. I have more than 7 years experience of empowering hundreds of women and men to heal emotionally and make the changes that they want to make in their lives. My clients regularly tell me that they go from 8 or 9 on the stress scale to 2, 1 or 0 within a session and that they have successfully used the tools that I have given them to do this for themselves between sessions.
"Susie gives me tools that I can use in my life without having to wait for the next session. You never know what tools are going to come out of the bag so I get really excited." Rory, 31
My approach is friendly, warm, and non-judgemental. I offer face to face counselling and couples counselling in Newcastle upon Tyne city centre and nationally via phone and internet video conferencing in the privacy of your own home (Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Hangouts).
"Since working with Susie I feel like a totally different, stronger person. Now I really believe that I've got the power and the tools within me to transform anything stuck." Amy, 28
Susie brings together numerous techniques from a range of therapeutic disciplines as well as her own, to facilitate a gentle and transformative client-led healing session.
The Healing Experience:
Working with my own physical impulses as signposts to emotional trauma and distress, I was soothed and empowered through: relaxation, conversation, and exercises in visualisation, all of which served to unlock tension and bring healing to parts that had, through trauma and depression, become ‘no access zones’ within me.
Unlike the Verbal therapies- in which I would find myself go around in circles, becoming disorientated as well as frustrated with the sound of my own voice - sessions with Susie focused on working intuitively with feelings and sensations, eyes closed and comfortable; this I found to be so much more effective.
It had been 12 years of struggle, initially brought about by an abusive relationship with a Narcissistic individual. For the first 8 years of raising 2 children and silently battling with moderate depression, the feeling was that I could just about cope. The subsequent 4 years of deep depression, coupled with ensuing stomach problems led to the realisation: this ship is sinking, I can no longer handle this on my own!
After the first session, the locked and blocked sensations around my throat had all but gone. I was able to return to a more varied diet; felt more lively and energetic than I had for years; was more in touch with my self and my needs, and felt better able to be assertive in voicing my thoughts and opinions.The mind-fog of depression was clearing and hints of old familiar personality traits and the impulse to enjoy life§, began to reappear.
After the second session with Susie, I was able to feel more grounded and secure in myself. I had, in the 2 hour session, developed a strengthened sense of entitlement to personal boundaries; a new way to look at and experience anger; and a better understanding of the distinction between what was me and ‘not me’ (social influences). My day-to-day inner-dialogue was becoming more upbeat and positive, kinder and more compassionate; relationships we taking on a more light-hearted feel; and decision-making was becoming an easier process.
For people who feel that it would be too scary, risky or damaging to open-up and enter into the healing process, I can honestly say that you could be surprised at just how much happier and healthier you can become, and potentially in such a short-time.
With a willingness to heal comes great power and possibility, to take that first step is the hardest, but I believe that the benefits continue for years to come.
With depression can come a loss of hope and belief in self and others, but with the support of a good healing practitioner you can work miracles, and rebuild even the most unreachable and broken parts.
