Welcome to Moving Forth

Moving Forth provides a creative and calm space to work towards better mental and physical health. Susan operates from the position that body and mind are entirely connected. Therapy is a process of making sense of the blocks, confusions and overwhelming experiences, to reach a more balanced sense of self.

Moving Forth is Susan’s private practice, however she collaborates with other body workers and therapists when a specific approach is beneficial.

Movement psychotherapy can help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • developmental and attachment issues
  • trauma & PTSD
  • minor/chronic physical ailments; back pain, aching legs, shoulder pain, headaches
  • relationships at home and at work
  • low self-esteem and lack of self confidence
  • communication issues; difficulties in expressing yourself with others, assertiveness, listening

More information can be found about Moving Forth here.

Susan also offers creative approaches to clinical supervision and collaborates with different organisations supporting continuous professional development courses for therapists.
