I worked with Sue during a very challenging time in my life.
I had been going through a sort of “existential” crisis (following a health crisis) that had led me to the decision of jumping into the unknown and into a completely new career. I was about to do that but still working in my old job, and experiencing a particularly trying and stressful situation there. At the same time, I was studying hard and making plans for my new life but also discovering parts of myself I had never seen or acknowledged.
Sue came into my life right in the middle of that period. She immediately picked up on my high sensitivity, and guided me in discovering and making sense of myself as a “highly sensitive person”. She provided me with information as well as practical tools that allowed me not only to know myself better but also to start living with that new understanding and leveraging it. Working with Sue is a big piece of the puzzle that led me to find myself and finally feel like myself again.
Sue has an extraordinary ability to look at you and instantly understand what you are going through and what you mean or don’t even know you mean. And when you are at a loss for words to describe something, she comes up with the most surprising metaphors and analogies that shine light on the situation!
I’d highly recommend any highly intelligent, highly sensitive person, often feeling out of place, to experience at least a session with Sue!
Sue has a very special skill. She can see through the fog that life creates around our emotions, untangle the mess of feelings and pinpoint the root cause of a whole host of problems: be it tension; stress; or just a feeling that something was missing from your soul.
Sometimes these are things you already know but aren’t allowing yourself to acknowledge; other times these findings are a true revelation.
Sue always expresses her findings in a calm, clear and easy to understand way and then offers suggestions for how to proceed. To top it all, she can do this via a video call from 200 miles away!
And yes, she’s also a really lovely person too.
If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, (and if you can find her)… call Sue.
As soon as I heard about Sue I was intrigued. After speaking at a networking event, I knew I needed to dive in and was excited to book a session. I really enjoyed our session and looking forward to working together again soon.
Absolutely recommend Sue and her 1:1’s.
It really helped me to discuss with someone not in my day-to-day life. It allows me to be open and frank because I don’t give a shit. I don’t hold anything back – with you I don’t feel I need to.
It’s helped me to find some small points of action. You remind me of ideas I’ve had but never told you about. I have more tools in my hand to go in a direction I think is good. That has helped.
Sue is great at asking the kind of probing questions that shift the way I’m thinking, and making connections I hadn’t thought of. I always come away with a new perspective and new tools for handling things.
I am constantly amazed at the things she manages to find to poke at and then how much better everything works when she’s done! It’s very woo-y, she will bring up the things I’m not mentioning that she has no logical way of knowing about.
I highly recommend! 10/10 would woo again!
Sue’s Emotional Plumbing is one of a kind. I didn’t know what to expect, and I got the unexpected in a more than positive way! Sue was spot on! Her kind, competent and down to earth approach makes you feel at ease instantly.
The outcome of my emotional plumbing session with Sue was a personal gamechanger. I cannot recommend her more!
I came to Sue for some guidance based on a hunch. I did not expect her to be able to help me so directly and so quickly.
She certainly has a talent which I cannot place- somewhere between the pragmatic and the spiritual.
Be prepared to laugh, to reconnect, and to reconsider.
Sue has been a tireless and attentive support to me during a very difficult time.
During a stretch in which I was coping with numerous intersecting problems, Sue came prepared time and again with considered and researched suggestions and reflections. I could tell that Sue had been mulling over my issues and crafting tools specifically for me.
Drawing on scientific, energetic, spiritual and other resources, she offered useful advice that enabled me better to process trauma related to sexual assault, harmful power dynamics, injustice and resulting challenges in a variety of relationships.
She is not content to help in the moment but explains practices that allow focused solo work to fix the “emotional plumbing” and strengthen one’s emotional health and coping mechanism.
I enjoy Sue’s very practical metaphors, which insinuate themselves like climbing anchors on a rock-face, as well as her humor, professionalism and openness.
Sue is not only incredibly smart and intuitive, but also unusually kind and generous.
Sue is one of the most intuitive and empathic people you could wish to meet.
Her work ethics are clear and precise and she will discuss any issues or problems you have in depth and with understanding and compassion.
Her help and advice is thorough and covers every aspect, yet, she will not force her views upon you but will intuitively guide you in the right direction.
Working with Sue is a great joy and very rewarding.
Hi Sue, something quite amazing is happening. I am sitting here on the sofa, feeling so deeply seen by you in a very beautiful way. It is like you acknowledged something that I don’t really have words for. Thank you!
Something quite amazing happened. About 5 days ago, I felt a sudden change of energy and without a transition felt “normal” again. Even when doing more heavy physical work, I don’t crumble like I did before with the slightest work.
I still tune into the silent energy which is simply blissful when amplified.
Thank you ever so much for your help!
I LOVE this woman’s brain (and energy!)
I said to Sue the other day that if I had to sum up my first (and ongoing!) impression of her it’s the feeling of…
‘You can’t hide anything from me’
She would be the scariest headmistress ever as she has this skill where the truth just comes out of your mouth.
Almost with a shocked look afterwards as you didn’t realise you even wanted or thought that!
We had a session and I instantly knew she was going to be amazing but she’s so relaxed you have no idea of the progress you’re making. Within half an hour I had canned a business idea or two, given far more emphasis to a dormant one and even solved an emotional query around my son – just for good measure!
Our brains are so complex, but because they are so capable of filling up with what we ‘think’ we need it’s really easy to lose often direction or focus in that fog.
Sue was like a spotlight I didn’t even know I needed!
I adore what she’s concocting and her blend of science and intuition is bloody powerful!
Check her out 💕
Sue is the perfect balance of intuition, intellect, compassion, and proud geek.
When we work together, I feel completely supported in my spiritual beliefs and accepted for exactly who I am, an absolute must that I look for in a coach.
Sue supported me during a huge spiritual transition in my life that involved many nuanced inner changes as well as significant external life changes.
As I navigated the difficult areas of my life surrounding these changes, Sue offered intuitive insights while providing a safe space for personal exploration.
I see her as one of the key people who helped get me through this unique phase of intense growth.
Owing to a combination of Coronovirus and personal circumstances, in-person consultations at my premises near The Hague (Netherlands) are not currently available.
I know Sue for some time now. I am trying to put down for you, how talking to her feels, but in fact it is not so easy. You simply need to book a session with her to experience it. I can promise you one thing, it will be mind/feeling blowing.
Sue is smart, you know kind of this very clear, down to earth, British-thing true to your self, scientist smart.
But on the other hand, her sensitivity, her gift, her talent is mind blowing and undeniable.
She just gets me, she understands what mountains and forests mean to me, she intuitively instructs me how to use my elements to help me to be there for my doula clients, she “sees, feels” my burdens and give suggestions how to resolve them.
It is like she non-violently tunes into me, and helps me to get better, to resolve my emotional issues that weight me down. I sense that the reason is that with doing that she is helping to create the best version of me-doula, so she extends her help to other women through me.
Sue’s high energy, in combination with the right words at the right time, allowed me to feel what I needed for a very long time.
In just a one-hour session, I finally dropped long-term emotional baggage.
Physically and emotionally, I feel ‘reshuffled’, and lighter.
Thank you, Sue!
I met Sue and made a podcast about her amazing abilities to tune-in to people’s inner emotions through her ’emotional plumbing’ technique.
I am an independent producer and a journalist with over 25-years experience so I approached the whole thing with the necessary critical distance, but after going through a session with Sue I was convinced she has an extraordinary talent.
If you want to listen to the podcast I made then check out Here in Holland – Emotional Plumbing – you’ll hear me talk to Sue in-depth and find out what happened when I climbed onto her table for a hands-on session.
Note for the pedants: This testimonial is the only one non-anonymous one. The podcast is publicly available.
I liked your sessions, you are very kind and soft in a relaxed atmosphere. Your uniqueness is in the way you feel things, so you can ‘listen’ to what the body has to say.
Which struck me as quite correct… I think the advice you gave me was good, I ran into the same advice (in the meantime) multiple times.
During the sessions I felt that in terms of knowing you had a strong sense of knowing where the problem was in my case.
I did not have much sensations literally. I did feel a kind of relaxation, after a while when I got used to this kind of coaching.
The ratio is always interfering the heart in where it really wants to go….
I think I could describe it as follows; I have no idea what I really would like to do. The connection between the heart and the mind is disturbed.
Because of that I can’t feel where my heart really is longing for. When I have the idea I can get hold of the feeling, it’s gone before I know it.
It is in some way contradictory, because I had the idea I did not feel anything (maybe I was THINKING that), but my intuition told me I did feel a lot.
The last few years I’ve had a lot on my plate: I became a mother (twice!), bought and renovated a house, lost jobs and started new ones, and experienced some medical setbacks. Sue helped me release the stress, figure out which issues were most important to me, and how to address them. Sue has a unique ability to help you release and understand your emotions, while also providing valuable feedback during the conversation.
I am glad I approached her because she has been of great help. Visiting her has helped me release stuck emotions and has made me more aware of the emotions I am experiencing on a day-to-day basis.
Sue provides a wonderful combination of her high sensitivity and a very down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach to her coaching.
To those who are unsure if they should work with Sue, I could only say, just go for it!
I was pleasantly surprised how better I felt after having a healing session with Sue.
I am very aware of my emotions and often pay attention to them. But Sue has an amazing skill of guiding you through and actually helping your body release huge amounts of emotions.
I was holding deep sadness, frustration and grief and with Sue’s help we worked on them. And my body and especially my hip felt a lot better and able to move more freely.
Sue is very sensitive and caring and you are in good hands in her care. What is very unique about Sue is her ability to say it as it is in a very sensitive way. Which allows you to move forward in your healing very quickly.
Sue has a definite gift, and it is hard to describe I think it is just best you experience it.
I was looking for a way to have a better connection with myself. A connection between feeling and understanding.
Sue works intuitively and knows exactly how to “put the finger on the sore spot.”
She finds things that she couldn’t have known about, but which she brings immediately out onto the table.
I asked Sue to do a healing on me because I had some issues regarding my love-life. Somehow I could not open myself to a love-relationship, I was keeping love away from me at a safe distance.
Her treatment was very nurturing, soft and caring, it was like a motherly energy. Sue saw that I was suppressing energy in my heart area and with her treatment she released a blockage and spoke to my heart to open up for love.
I felt a shift in my body, like a energy boost, it was very powerful. A short period after that I met a really nice guy and I opened my heart to him.
I came to Sue curious about her method. I’ve had a lot of changes recently and I’ve been feeling a lot of resistance.
When Sue was working on me I felt warm energy flowing from her hands.
Sue helped me to understand where my resistance was coming from and what it was about, linking it back to things in my childhood. I now know more about this resistance and what lies underneath it.
I really recommend Sue: it’s really a gift to yourself.
