Suzanne as a Person and a Therapist
Suzanne recognises Personal Development and Growth as key elements of Psychotherapy and thus aims to provide an environment for her clients in which free expression and self exploration and growth are unhindered or restricted by Judging, Rejection or Retaliation. Suzanne is an open, supportive, compassionate and understanding Psychotherapist who is capable of offering the most profound of insights. She offers her clients an opportunity to see themselves beyond the ordinary, their problems and insecurities and grasp at the possibility of being something new, uplifted, courageous and resilient and able to work through their most difficult of issues and fears.
Suzanne is an Integrative Jungian Psychotherapist; she has chosen to integrate a number of compatible Psychotherapeutic theories and practices into a cohesive and dynamic model of practice that allows her to work within each client’s individual frame of reference. Her model of practice is based on Jungian, post Jungian and Transpersonal theories which are compatible because she believes that a rounded and inclusive approach, rather that ‘reductionist’ methodology, is more congruent with a client’s true self and needs and conducive with the personal growth necessary to move beyond issues.
