Transforming the lives of Teenagers, Parents and Adults
As Buddha once said, "All of life is suffering!"
That's hard to hear, but it does empower us that we are not alone!
YOU are not alone!
If you struggle with life's challenges, a mental health 'diagnosis', relationship conflict, addictive traits, overwhelm, anxiety, withdrawal, anger, emotional pain, hopelessness, or the classic modern-day burnout, you have come to the right place!
Integrative trauma therapy is a beautiful opportunity to compassionately and gently begin to unravel circumstances, situations, and relationships that prevent you living a fulfilled, calm and stress-free life.
Through over 35 years of work experience - as well as personal lived experience through crisis and trauma, Sue has designed these sessions to bring you tools and strategies that work.
Tragically today, many of us live in a high-stress, fight, flight, or freeze response. Unconscious hypervigilance and low-lying anxiety then cause dysregulation of our nervous system and the need for external sources to numb or soothe our pain. Consumerism, overwork, social media, over-exercise, avoidance, internet addiction, or addictive habits all supply a quick fix of serotonin, dopamine, or adrenaline, but long term, cause us depression, inflammatory disease, auto-immune problems, and sickness.
In addition, many unconscious behaviours we developed to survive fear, pain, rejection, adversity or tragedy in earlier life also become the obstacles today that impact our sense of happiness, calm and freedom, because they interfere with relationships, work, family, communication, and getting our needs met.
That's where it helps to learn how to connect with your Autonomic Nervous System and your physiological stress response. By recognising what triggers you, we can start to build an understanding of your relationship attachment style, and your go-to stress response and we can begin to integrate your healed hurting parts into your healthy adult self.
