Personal statement

Suzanna works in a person-centered way. She specialises in addiction but also sees clients for various other issues to explore what is behind their anxiety, depression and to build self esteem.

She provides a safe non-judgmental space to allow clients to talk about any current challenges they are facing and to look back on their life to identify patterns of relating and ways of being in the world. She believes this holding experience to be at the heart of change and overcoming difficulties.

Suzanna is interested in the importance of processing grief and loss in order to have new beginnings and wrote her dissertation on this theme.
