Embodied Living Therapy
Sue Tupling, Director of Embodied Living, uses neuro-linguistic psychotherapy as her main modality. This is complemented with
transformational coaching, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, yoga therapy, breath re-training,
emotional freedom techniques and biofeedback work.
Neuro-linguistic psychotherapy (NLPt) goes much deeper than CBT and even neurolinguistic programming (NLP), in that it looks for the way the client has
'constructed' their experience of the world and, by exploring 'how' people think, identifying successful outcomes and then applying these successful
actions or beliefs in ways which work. Whilst the client is always in control of the overall direction of the work, and indeed each session, much of
the focus is on working with the client's unconscious and somatic mind, their ‘deep structure’, hence it is very powerful.
In NLP therapy the therapist acts like an explorer, often not knowing how each session will emerge, going with the client’s need and having the
overall outcome in mind at all times. A basic belief of nlp psychotherapy is that the client already has all the answers and solutions within
their own unconscious mind and body-mind system, and the therapists job is to reveal them and collaboratively put them to use. Sue’s skill lies
in paying exquisite attention and enabling the client to discover the inner structure that is generating the presenting problem, so that the
client begins to have a clear feeling of what restructuring would serve them better.
Depending on the presenting issue and desired outcome the therapy can typically be brief and short-term (6 to 10 hours) or for
others more long-term work is needed. In her work, Sue aims to quickly get to the source of the problem, and does not need to dwell too
much on personal history, only using it to look for less productive 'patterning' to restructure the client's model of the world to a
more productive and useful one for them.
FREE Intake Session
The initial 60 minute Intake Session provides an initial assessment, giving an indication of the duration of the therapy, and is free of charge. The work can be carried out in the warm, comfortable therapy room at St Albans House or on client premises.
