About

Corporate managers, Small business owners & Individuals

Even the best of us need someone to listen to us when life issues build up. Everyone gets overwhelmed and suffers with stress, anxiety, grief and depression at times.
Book Now and have One Good Conversation…it helps!


Good psychological health with ourselves, our family, our work colleagues and our communities is a right not a privilege.
Seeking support is a sign of strength. It may involve one good conversation, two or three sessions or try occasionally longer term engagement. The biggest reward is realising that stress and anxiety is normal, chronic stress anxiety and consequent depression does require assistance. The experience is always liberating.

You can choose from a combination of modalities that fit best for you.

Using the latest research and clinical skills One Good Conversation offers you…


One on One Counselling

Sue uses best outcome therapies whilst assessing your concerns and listens to really understand where you are coming from.

Clinical medical hypnotherapy

Sue is one of the most highly qualified practitioners in Australia and can relax a worried mind to make therapy more effective. Sue recently completed a 12 year course on listening and communicating with clients by helping them reduce overthinking so as to focus on core issues, that is, what is really troubling people but they do not know why.. This was completed alongside some of the most effective therapists in Australia in August 20. Outcomes can be as simple as eliminating a phobia or as complicated as understanding why we do the negative things we do. This therapy is extremely effective and really works.
