Sue Hitchcock Bristol Couples Counselling

Sue Hitchcock


I believe that, as social beings, we need other people in our lives to help us make sense of who we are. When we feel vulnerable or confused, it can be hard to ask for help from those closest to us. Counselling can provide the space we need to live out not just what it is to survive, but what it is to feel alive and to thrive.

My approach is humanistic and relational. I use various techniques, including CBT, and, where appropriate, I find working creatively and experientially with clients can also be highly effective. My goal is to provide the necessary conditions by which clients can gain a better understanding of who they are and what they need to do to realise their true potential.

Catrin Parry

Alexander Technique

I discovered the Alexander Technique in 2006 while living in France. I had slipped a disk in my lower back and was forced to lie on my back for two months. During this time I was sent a book about the technique which completely changed the way I was thinking about how to go about getting better.

The Alexander Technique is about rediscovering your own natural balance and co-ordination, both mental and physical.
