Suzanne is a tertiary educated counsellor with post graduate training and an extensive 20 years’ experience in relationship, intimacy, sexuality and personal wellbeing counselling. She provides a professional and confidential service to clients wanting to explore issues of concern regarding sex, sexuality and relationships.
Suzanne is a certified Sex Educator and Sex Therapist with ASSERT (Australian Society of Sex Educators, Researchers and Therapists 2009) and is a clinical member of AAFT (Australian Association of Family Therapists). Suzanne applies Bowlby’s Attachment Theory & Family Systems Theory to assist clients in their efforts to improve their wellbeing and relationship effectiveness.
Clients are encouraged to learn about, and develop the capacity to shift perspectives, and to appreciate the importance of our relationships – how it impacts our development, sense of self, ability to deal with others, and mental health. That understanding their partner’s brain and attachment style can help them defuse conflict and build a secure relationship. Also trained in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, Suzanne utilises the Gottman Relationship Checkup and report to identify the relationships strengths and challenges, concerns and recommendations.
Sessions are available in person, or via telephone or Skype by arrangement.
