Embodied Living is a unique form of psychotherapy and counselling to help you deal with the symptoms of stress, the cause of anxiety, overcome post-traumatic stress and beat depression. Your mental health is as important as your physical health; when you look after your mental wellbeing you will feel better physically. Living an embodied life is overcoming the symptoms of depression, letting go of anxiety, dealing with panic attacks or phobias and feeling comfortable and content in yourself again.
Sue Tupling, the founder of Embodied Living, is an experienced mindfulness and yoga teacher, psychotherapist, counsellor, coach and trainer who is dedicated to helping others find joy and vitality after having embarked on her own personal journey of growth and worked through many of her own challenges in life.
What is psychotherapy?
Embodied Living psychotherapy is a deeply supportive relationship which supports your wellbeing and helps you to reconnect with your own innate capacity for healing. Psychotherapy helps you to gain the tools to help yourself to grow and heal. Embodied Living therapy combines several different modalities to help you successfully overcome your symptoms: counselling, body psychotherapy, neurolinguistic psychotherapy, somatic experiencing (SE), coaching, yoga therapy, mindfulness, hypnotherapy and biofeedback.
With this multimodality therapy, you get an individual approach tailored to you, there is no ‘one size fits all’ (there cannot be – the human mind and body is so unique for each of us). And either total or substantial relief is achieved across a wide range of physical as well as emotional problems including chronic pain, IBS, tinnitus, teeth grinding, headaches, problems sleeping, back pain etc.
In Embodied Living therapy I teach you to access your own inner resources so that you can take these tools yourself and render me irrelevant! We are often too close to our problems to find a way through; they are unconscious and hidden from us which is why they are still there. But a good psychotherapist helps you to learn self therapy – tools for transformation … for life!

The effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling using this approach is measured by practice based evidence using the CORE system. I am achieving up to 95 per cent clinical or reliable change and 85 per cent both clinical and reliable change across all four dimensions of wellbeing, symptoms, functioning and risk.

Yoga psychotherapy for treating trauma
If you want an effective way to treat post-traumatic stress or PTSD, our trauma-sensitive yoga therapy programme works specifically with you and your body to help you overcome trauma. Mindfulness-based integral yoga is more effective than any medication for treating trauma. I run one to one sessions and small groups.
Our transformational coaching programme is about helping you to embody a deep ‘felt sense’ of change so that you connect to yourself and your purpose in life on a deep level. We help you utilise significant life experiences – both positive and negative – to transform and create a very different and positive future.
Mindfulness-based Integral Yoga
Learning the practices and tools of mindfulness and integral yoga is the best health insurance you can ever take out. I work one to one or with small groups of two or three people. I also run Yoga Workshops – drawing on the principles of mindfulness and integral yoga to integrate physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing.
Emotional Wellbeing course
Our free online Emotional Wellbeing programme is a free online 8 week course, consisting of weekly 1.5 hour sessions combining psychoeducation with yoga therapy. You can join this course at any time and it is totally free of charge. Here is what people say about the course:
“I thought it was excellent and encompassed a lot of emotional,physical,mental and spiritual wellbeing. The humanitarian and empowering approach taken would inspire confidence in many people who might not otherwise find such tools and expertise available to them”.
Improving Psychological Resilience
We turn stress management on its head with our 1 day ‘Mental Toughness’ course. Mental Toughness is a quality which determines how an individual manages stress and is a key factor in enabling individuals to maximise their health and wellbeing.
