I'm Sue Bennett, a fully insured and qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Hynotherapist, Reiki Master and Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage Therapist.
I offer a more Holistic approach to healing using the best combination of therapy to suit your individual needs whether this be Counselling and Reiki or Hypnotherapy and Counselling. My therapeutic approach to counselling is integrative, for which I work predominately with a person-centred and psychodynamic approach. This simply means that I work with what's happening in your life in the 'here and now', as well as exploring issues or relationships from your past and how these may be impacting your present life.
Life isn't always easy and we all at some point encounter obstacles on our life pathway whether this is mentally, emotionally, spiritual or physical. We have all experienced emotional memories within our life. Negative experiences or traumas that we suffer in our lives can get 'stuck' or 'held' in our energetic systems. This causes an energetic disturbance which blocks our energy from flowing freely around our body. Blockages to our energy system can affect us mentally and emotionally and impact us physically so Reiki can help unblock our energy flow and thus re-balance our body.
Combining Counselling and Hypnotherapy helps utilize the mind to explore emotions and develop solutions that you may not have considered before. Hypnotherapy usually focuses on changing behaviours, while counselling more often help self understanding and self acceptance. Together, breaking old habits and establishing more adaptive behaviours helps improve self esteem, self knowledge, thus creating balance and self growth.
I work within the code of ethics and closely with you offering my empathy, support, understanding and acceptance which in turn builds your personal growth and self awareness. My intention is simply to help you in the best way I can combining the most optimal combination of therapy that best suits your individual needs.
