    10 Questions with Sue Hawkins

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • I wanted people to be really listened to and to learn how to empower themselves through changing their thinking, their situation, their actions and learning how to communicate well to maximize their relationships.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • Put very simply, kindness. I am an advocate of Interpersonal Psychotherapy as it is a gentle approach to
      understanding and normalising the human condition, especially within the states of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, trauma, grief and loss.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • All of them, particularly the Perinatal Period, Anxiety, Depression, Interpersonal Issues, Couples Counselling, Positive Relationships, Self Growth no matter what a clients age, acceptance & forgiveness,
      Grief and Work Place Bullying and Clinical Medical Hypnotherapy.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • Client Focused approach within a context of the psycho social position of the client and their stage of development. I use many therapies and philosophies which are personally tailored for the client/s and their issues.
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • Definitely they will feel relieved after the first session and without fail I see great movement after the third session and onwards.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • It has allowed me to grow and forgive.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • Watching people free themselves from the weight they have been carrying psychologically and growing and really liking themselves as a person with a contribution to make to themselves, their relationships, their careers and their communities.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • You betcha.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • Inequality of socio economics and some really doozy people in positions of power that they are not competent with.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?
