Breaking the Anxiety Cycle by Calming and Empowering Parents and Kids

Tiffany

“We started seeing Sue for my 9yr old son who was having trouble falling asleep every night for over a year, feeling scared and needing someone with him. After one session, he has gone straight to sleep on his own every night since the appointment!

Amazing!

We are so very grateful to Sue for everything she has helped us with!

Highly recommend Sue”

“My 10 year old daughter Hailey has experienced anxiety for a couple of years now. She has had periods where she has gone off to school happily, but then the anxious feelings have come again and each day has been a struggle.

I initially met Sue at a parenting workshop at the local community centre. I did this at a time when I was also struggling too. I was wondering what I could do to help Hailey work through her self- doubt and anxious feelings. I decided to invest in one on one sessions with Sue for Hailey and myself.

At the workshops and subsequent one on one sessions Sue always opens by saying that there is no judgement and asked that Hailey and myself were open and honest in our responses to get the most out of the sessions.

I have seen Hailey blossom in many ways. She now has strategies to deal with her anxious moments. One of the messages that Hailey and I have taken is that you have to feel to heal. So rather than avoiding the anxious feeling Sue taught us both to breathe in the anxious feeling and breathe it out. Another light bulb moment was recognising that connecting and bonding with Hailey as her own unique person but not solving problems for her is so important as we move into the tween years.

I have also experienced positive change in myself following my sessions with Sue. I don’t sweat the small stuff ( as much ! ) and I am able to communicate in a more calm positive way with both Hailey and Ebony and my husband Dean which means we’re enjoying family life more.

I encourage anyone whatever their age who feels like they are in a rut or is held back by anxiety and would like strategies to learn and grow, to contact Sue.”

“I just wanted to let you know that Lucas has been doing great after your advice. In fact, from the following morning after we spoke it has been a 100% improvement. I put in place all that you suggested and he responded positively right away. I was a bit nervous going back for Term 3 after the break, but he has picked up where he left off and is doing so well. No more separation anxiety.

Thank you so much Sue for your great advice!”

“My son was so anxious when it was time to go to sleep. No matter how hard I tried or what I said to reassure him, nothing worked to allay his fears. I suffered along with him every night because I couldn’t stand to see the anguish on his little face. Sue Stevenson was recommended by a work colleague so I took my son to meet with Sue. After just one session, I couldn’t believe the difference in my son. Instead of at least an hour every night before going to bed, worrying about absolutely everything, he put strategies in place suggested by Sue and he actually now goes to sleep peacefully. I am so grateful and I highly recommend Sue.”

“Thank you so much for yesterday Sue.

The strategy you taught Ruby has been put to use already and is wonderful.

Before yesterday Ruby had a fear of dogs.

When our friend’s gentle giant of a dog came into the house at first, she was frightened.

Once we put your strategy into action to my amazement she was patting and hugging the dog.

Again, today we used it when I dropped ruby off to the school holiday program. No separation anxiety today.

Amazing! 😊”

Angela

Hello my name is Angela. I’m in my fifties and have been a single mother for many years. During this time I have struggled with depression, anxiety and low self esteem. I met Sue at the school my daughter attends. Sue was helping my daughter with much the same issues as mine. My daughter is 16. We have both seen doctors, psychologists and had medications to assist us to try to feel better about ourselves and enjoy a better quality of life. It was my daughter who wanted to continue seeing Sue privately once Sue left the school community. So, I met Sue and we set up some sessions and here we are.

I am so glad that I met Sue as the two sessions I have had with her have certainly helped me improve my outlook on life. Sue is genuine, caring focused, and non judgemental. I was instantly at ease speaking with her and most importantly she gave me strategies that I found easy to use that ensured me a positive outcome in my stressful situations. I feel much better about myself now and I have definitely seen an improvement in my daughter as well. So I feel that whether you are a teenager or an oldie like me, Sue can help you. It is well worth it so I will continue to see her.

Thank you Sue for helping us.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a life coaching session. I came to Sue at an important crossroad in my life. In just one session Sue was able to help me pinpoint and uncover a deeply held belief that was holding me back; the fear of success. This key insight has helped me to feel empowered to take steps towards a dream that I wanted to pursue, but kept feeling roadblocked. If you want a breakthrough in your mindset, I highly recommend Sue.

Sue Stevenson is a blessing, her heart for the wellbeing of people is truly evident. With sound wisdom and a toolbox of techniques Sue brings another level of freedom to the table. Thank you, Sue.

Dee

I have had many coaching sessions with Sue and we have always ended the session with a great outcome. She is amazing! I know that she genuinely cares and listens with great enthusiasm and that there is no judgement whatsoever. She is very easy to talk to. Sue is dedicated to getting a positive outcome no matter what it takes and that, in my opinion makes her a great coach. I always look forward to our sessions.

Sue Stevenson has coached me on a variety of different issues, and no matter what the topic, is always professional, encouraging, helpful and knowledgeable. I have found her to be a great listener with a warm and empathetic nature. She asks thought provoking questions without it feeling imposing and always has appropriate responses to my questions and answers. Sue opened my eyes to an alternative perspective on multiple occasions and to possibilities I hadn’t thought about, both of which were very helpful in gaining clarity. She doesn’t hesitate to probe deep if that is where you need to go and always respectfully asks if you’re OK with it. Through Sue, I have gained awareness of some negative patterns of behaviour that were not benefitting me. I find Sue to be kind, cheerful and easy to talk to. She is always prepared and on time for sessions and checks in to see how I’ve been travelling since our last session. I feel she cares. I would happily recommend her as a coach.

Sue, you’re a bloody natural. Thanks so much. That one session really helped me.
