About Sue

Sue has worked with women and families in a variety of settings over the last 30 years, including paediatric nursing, midwifery, birth preparation, education and research. Through her experience of assisting individuals and couples through significant life transitions Sue has naturally transitioned towards counselling and psychotherapy.  Sue holds a Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and is trained in Focusing Orientated Therapy.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Sue offers a non-judgemental approach founded on empathy and respect for individual circumstances.  She utilises an integrative approach that includes mindfulness and emotion focused strategies to support grief and loss, anxiety, depression and life transitions.  She is a member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and practices within the stringent ethical guidelines of her professions to ensure safe practice.
