"My experience of Sue during the thirty sessions we have met has been extremely
positive. Throughout my chaotic experience of grieving following the recent death
of my husband, Sue remained a strong, warm, grounded and wonderfully authentic
figure in the room. I have felt able to bring myself to the sessions in whatever mood
prevailed at the time and never felt judged or that my emotions were ‘too much’.
On the many occasions I felt my life was shattering into pieces and I was becoming
increasingly lost, Sue stayed present and steady which allowed me to find a level of
self security so I could continue safely. Sue presented suggestions of ways to support
myself in this vulnerability, which were so creative and totally appropriate for me. They
were (and continue to be) very effective techniques which I know I will continue to use in
My summary would simply be that I feel so lucky to have been in the safe pair of
hands that Sue represented. She modelled the steady, warm, authentic human that I
desperately needed during this time and helped me to move through my grief to a
place where I feel ready to leave the counselling environment and care for myself.
She will, however, remain with me as my ‘inner counsellor’ and I believe she will
have a great and beneficial impact on many clients’ lives in the future
At risk of sounding like an Oscar speech, I would also like to thank Mosaic for the
help, support and understanding that the organisation showed me at all times."
