We are all able to be happy and live an embodied life full of meaning, connectedness, pleasure and satisfaction. But, from time to time, we need a helping hand to overcome and heal the problems that get in the way of this happiness.
In a warm, non-judgemental space.
I can help you with many issues including: anxiety; depression; trauma; abuse; anger resolution; addiction; low self-esteem; panic attacks; bereavement; relationship issues; phobia; self-harm; stress.
The counselling can be short or long term.
Depending on the nature of your problem. You can be assured of a results oriented approach to our work together, in an open and honest framework.
Offering a safe therapeutic location in Stafford or secure online sessions.
The therapy space, in St Albans House, has a private reception and offers easy parking and access from all the main routes. Sessions are also available via secure, encrypted online sessions – all you need is a device that is connected to the internet (mobile, tablet, laptop/computer). Of course telephone is also an option.
The initial session is without obligation.
After that you just pay one session at a time. I also have limited spaces available to ‘pay what you can’ for those who might be struggling financially.
Therapy that gets results
Outcomes are important and you want to know that the time and money you put into therapy will work. I have been using the CORE System to measure outcomes since 2012. This system is hugely popular and clinically proven since being developed in the late 90’s. CORE is now the outcome system of choice in the UK and increasingly overseas. Here is what you can expect to get with me:
- currently achieving 95% reliable change and 85% both clinical and reliable change as measure by the CORE system
- that means you are guaranteed to experience change and feel better as a result of working with me
- ongoing investment in personal and self development over 50 hours each year and over 4,000 hours experience working psychotherapeutically
- I am so confident that you will be able to experience positive change that I will give you your money back if you don’t!
A Multi-modality approach to psychotherapy in Stafford
Sue Tupling, founder of Embodied Living, uses neurolinguistic psychotherapy and Pesso Boyden system body-based psychotherapy as her main modalities working in Stafford and Staffordshire. This is complemented with yoga therapy and mindfulness, hypnotherapy, breath re-training, emotional freedom techniques and biofeedback work. Sue is also a qualified coach and offers transformational coaching.
Sue has been working therapeutically with people for many years. She is also a highly trained and experienced yoga and mindfulness teacher. Sue is able to offer you the widest range of effective therapy modalities in Stafford. This means that you get the results you want.
An efficient therapeutic process
Depending on the presenting issue and desired outcome the therapy can typically be brief and short-term (6 to 10 hours) or for others more long-term work is needed. In her work, Sue aims to quickly get to the source of the problem, and does not need to dwell too much on personal history, only using it to look for less productive ‘patterning’ to restructure the client’s model of the world to a more productive and useful one for them.
The therapeutic programme is guided by the four-stage BEST process. As well as helping to heal ‘wounds’ – depression, anxiety, headaches, emotional problems – this process helps to strengthen your resources, upgrade your emotional wellbeing and deepen your connection to your life purpose.
Insights and advice on life issues…
Be more of who you can be
Help with overcoming life’s problems
I just want to feel like myself again
Everything is too much and I just can’t cope anymore
I’m so anxious, I feel I’m going crazy
I’ve been living like this for so long
It feels like I am just surviving, not thriving
I don’t want to spend the rest of my life like this
I don’t see the point of it anymore
Life seems so meaningless and I don’t feel like I have any purpose
Everyone around me seems to be happy but I am not
Sometimes I don’t know what overcomes me
I get angry (anxious/sad) for no reason and it scares me
I’m worried I will lose people I love
These are just some of the things that people say who come for therapy sessions. I offer a safe, caring space to help you to find yourself again.
You might be feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed. Or perhaps you are worried about your health, family, job or relationship. Sometimes we can feel so stuck that we just don’t know which way to turn.
Have you felt that you’ve had to be the strong one, keep coping, not let anyone else in?
Do you feel that seeking help means that you are weak?
Have you been feeling down, hoping that something will change whilst putting on a brave face?
Many people live like this for years, and it often takes for us to be at rock bottom before we reach out. But when you do make contact, you have made a brave and life-changing decision. Change is often not easy, but it is possible. And I work at a pace that is right for you.
In a non-judgemental space you are able to talk freely and openly. About your pain, dissatisfaction, frustration, despair, alienation or other issues.
Just talking about things that you’ve held inside for so long can be a tremendous relief. By making connections and understanding how the past relates to now, you can loosen up the past’s grip on you and live more freely in the present.
