I’m Susan Quinn. Psychotherapist & Life Coach. Since 1991 I have been helping people with relationships at risk and recovery from all kinds of trauma whether it is emotional or physical.
I am passionate about helping people to rekindle the passion they once had by removing resentments and anger which build up and destroy the intimacy in relationships.
Do you find yourself creating the same unsatisfying relationships or situations over and over again in one area of your life?
Do you wonder if this could ever be stopped?
Do you feel hopeless and even guilty?
The good news is that its not your fault.. and there is a way out of this vicious cycle.
We carry fears in our mind-body, that come from trauma from our past experiences in our nervous system and they control our behaviors and how we feel about ourselves, our self confidence.
I myself have struggled with anxiety and searched manny years for a way to release fear’s hold on me. I tried a lot of types of talk therapy and many other healing paths. These helped but I still had this crippling fear which kept me from trying anything I wanted to accomplish. I finally found the mind-body therapies: EFT, EMDR, Psych-k, NLP and others which freed me from the fear I so desperately wanted to get rid of.
My first goal is to help you feel relief from your pain. This happens right away because of the mind-body therapies that I use. EFT, emotional freedom techniques or it’s also called meridian tapping, relaxes the mind-body in a way that allows the mind to release locked information which has not been available to the conscious mind before.
Besides EFT, one of the first things I use is EMDR which causes painful memories to feel neutral. This allows us to easily and quickly change the meaning you made of these memories. You can then see them in a different perspective and therefore come to different conclusions about yourself and about the world .
Until this is done we all hold some form of these beliefs in our mind-body:
- I’m defective, (not good enough)
- I won’t succeed no matter what I do.
- I’m not lovable.
- I have to be perfect.
I have seen over and over again, working with hundreds of clients that when these negative beliefs are released everyone naturally contacts the goodness that is our core self.
The interesting part of this is that until you do this process, you don’t believe that you are that core self of pure love. Clients often say to me “ If I let go of this self hatred, or anger, or fear, then I wont have an identity- no one will know me. I get excited to lead the client to the truth about them that is under that feeling. When I help you reach this place in yourself I feel chills- and feelings of such gratitude and admiration for the beauty of our pure nature which has always been there. It is just waiting to be discovered.
This feeling is what keeps me so excited about the work that we do together!
