Grief and loss after the death of a significant other or loved one, or sudden loss (eg of job, role or income) is a natural and appropriate response. There are many supportive cultural, therapeutic and appropriate ways to enable this grief and loss to begin to heal.
However, symptoms of grief and loss many be held in your body over many years.
Sue studied with Mal McKissock (www.bereavementcare.com.au/about_us.htm) and understands how grief and loss can impact your life. Working somatically, Sue can support you moving through the grieving process, and help you to understand and manage anniversaries, special dates and other times that for others are celebratory such as Christmas and holidays.

Many people have nerve pain or back pain that is not amenable to pure physical or chemical interventions. Sue’s research (1999) found that physical mental and emotional pain was significantly reduced for clients in her study using a somatic and integrative approach.
Dyslexia, ADHD, memory problems – all have a somatic as well as neurological aspect. The latest neuroscience research for extreme life events such as strokes has shown that the brain and body impact each other and that the “brain is able to be changed – and to change itself” Doige (2007) rather than remaining “hard-wired,” giving hope to all who live with learning difficulties.
Stress and feeling overwhelmed can affect your ability to learn. Gaining Insights about previously stressful learning situations and re-framing them (using brain integration techniques and exercises) has been found to improve the capacity to learn, remember and have the confidence to begin to explore new goals.
