Sue uses a collaborative approach to identify practical changes and strategies that will meet the individual needs of the client. She considers psycho-education as an important tool to increase knowledge, understanding and insight into the associations between thoughts, behaviours, emotions and physiological responses, as this is a great starting point for change.
Sue draws on a number of evidence-based therapeutic interventions in treatment- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema-focused Therapy, and Mindfulness- to enhance mental and emotional wellness and facilitate optimal functioning. She works with children, young people and adults presenting with anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma-related conditions; particular areas of interest are trauma and health psychology.
In her spare time Sue enjoys a walk (bush or beach, and doggo), a paddle in a kayak, music events, and generally pottering about (home, community and lovely Tassie).
