sue tuplingWe 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-judgmental 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.

I offer a safe, private and convenient therapeutic location in Stafford. 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 Skype, telephone and email.

The initial session is without obligation and 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.

Within Staffordshire and the West Midlands I am one of a few psychotherapists registered with UKCP and Accredited by NLPtCA in Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy (a specialist form of NLP).

Multi-modal therapySue Tupling, founder of Embodied Counselling, uses neurolinguistic psychotherapy and body-based psychotherapy as her main modalities working in Stafford and Staffordshire. This is complemented with transformational coaching, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, yoga therapy, breath re-training, emotional freedom techniques and biofeedback work.

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 therapeutc 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.

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

My (insert bad habit) is out of control and its affecting my relationships

My partner thinks I should see you

This is the first time I have talked to anyone like this

I think I’m having a breakdown or something

I’m at rock bottom and I don’t know what to do

I hate living like this

I can’t seem to find any peace

I’m scared all the time

I think I’m going to hurt myself or someone else, if something doesn’t change

These are just some of the things that people say who come for counselling sessions. I offer a safe, caring space to help you to find yourself again.

consultationYou 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-judgmental 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.
