Wheelchair or Weightliftng?

“You yourself are your own obstacle, rise above yourself.” – Hafez

Sue Woodriffe - Bowen therapist, EFT Matrix & Meta Health Practitioner (Close Up)

When I was 20 I was told I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 40.  Instead at 61 I started weightlifting …

I was a very active sporty child but age 12 I had an accident that changed the course of my life. By 20 I had experienced 2 knee injuries that resulted in 4 major surgeries.

This resulted in fairly widespread chronic pain and it was not until I found a Bowen therapist some 20 years later that I finally understood what had happened and started the road to recovery. 

Sue Woodriffe - Using Bowen Technique

The Bowen practitioner explained why I had so much pain everywhere. Partly because the knee surgeries had disrupted the anatomy trains through my body and partly because the repeated traumas had never allowed my fascia to recover from one before the next one hit. It was only then that I realised I had been traumatised and this was the cause not only of the pain but also of some of the emotional issues I had been dealing with throughout my life.

In 2014 my marriage ended and I navigated the breakdown and divorce while starting to train as a Bowen therapist and learning various ways to help people release their emotional trauma so that I could work with the mind and body.

Early in 2019 a big dog ran into my leg and severely damaged my already damaged left knee. By autumn 2019 I was told I would never bend my knee enough to get into my car to drive and I drove for the first time at the end of February 2020. Another medical forecast that didn’t come true!

Now I am weightlifting and using a treadmill in the gym and going from strength to strength.

The mind body connection is central to my work and my passion is to enable people to heal themselves and find their truth.  I have worked with many issues – anxiety, depression, serious disease and for a while I volunteered at a local cancer centre where I helped people process and release the shock (trauma) of the diagnosis and the aftermath. I work especially with PTSD and Complex PDST.

"I had many sessions with Sue whilst going through breast cancer and she was friendly, unshockable, intuitive and skilled - all very important attributes when you are going through something so harsh. Sue was invaluable in helping me cope with all the stages that I went through; the diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and beyond. I am very grateful and I couldn't recommend her highly enough.."
