I went to Sue when I was 2 ½ stone overweight, suffering from anxiety that meant I had no confidence, terrified of flying and nervous in social situations and my daughter’s wedding was coming up with a hen do to Marbella!
If it wasn’t for there being no way out of going I would probably never had done anything about how small my life was because I had tried in the past with other therapists and it hadn’t worked - but I am so glad I did.
From the start of our sessions via skype or zoom Sue put me at ease. She was professional but relaxed too. I felt I was in safe hands.
She started off getting me to dream about what I wanted rather being fixated on my fears which was new to me and that’s where the first photo from a magazine came in. I loved everything about it, but it was so far from me I forgot it!
Sue gently and expertly helped me find the reasons behind each of my fears, so I didn’t feel stupid any longer. I have had some fairly huge stressful events over recent years and Sue helped me transform the power of them but the biggest surprise was when I felt safe enough to finally go back to being abused when I was small - something I had completely suppressed, and without any pain change how I viewed. It changed everything.
Gradually I found myself doing more and more and feeling great doing it. I not only got on the plane to Marbella, I was the life and soul at the hen do! The weight fell away, I felt healthier that I had in years and the wedding day went beyond my expectations because I turned up as me not trying to be what I thought I should be.
The best bit was when I saw the wedding photos afterwards and realised that Sue had helped me almost exactly get my dream and I couldn’t have done it with anyone else.
