About Suzy

I am a PACFA registered Psychotherapist, who lives and works in Walyalup (Fremantle), on Whadjuk Nyoongar country, Western Australia.

Growing up in England, I was lucky to have spent a lot of my childhood surrounded by countryside and woodlands. I have always had a strong connection to animals and the natural world, and this love of nature extended to a fascination about our own human nature; why we behave the way we do, and our relationship to the world within and around us.

After moving to Australia, I completed a BA in Social Justice & International Relations, and went on to work in Environmental Campaigns. I loved this work and the positive impact we made for Nature, but I still felt a strong pull to learn more about psychology and how our own blind spots might impact our relationship to others and our environment.

I completed my post-graduate studies in Counselling & Psychotherapy, and now work in private practice. You can read more about my therapeutic approach here.

I am registered as a Climate Aware Practitioner with Psychology for a Safe Climate, and hold a certificate in Ecotherapy. I continue to be active on environmental & social justice issues in my spare time.

I also work as a yoga teacher, teaching mindful Hatha and Yin classes. My own yoga journey began over 10 years ago and has allowed me to slowly cultivate a deeper awareness of myself and connection to my body.

I acknowledge the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation as the traditional custodians of the land I live and work on. I recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of Noongar people, who for tens of thousands of years have lived in right relationship to these lands and waters. I acknowledge that this was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
