Sue Goodwin

Sue has a practice near Eastbourne and also offers sessions via Zoom, which her clients find just as effective.

Qualifying in 2001 as one of the first Human Givens therapists, Sue has helped clients with many different issues, including:

  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem or self-confidence
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Domestic abuse
  • OCD
  • Phobias
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Just "feeling stuck"

Call Sue on 07540 431545 or email to chat or to make an appointment.

Whilst many therapists don’t mention their charges on their websites, Sue is upfront: her normal charge is £65 per session. However, because everyone deserves effective and speedy help with emotional issues, Sue’s clients pay in line with their own financial circumstances (with no means-testing, forms to complete, questions about finances).

Sue absolutely believes that anyone can change their lives for the better. Making use of her clients’ imagination and cognitive mind, Sue’s style is empathetic, honest, non-judgemental and straightforward.

Sue successfully works with clients of all ages and from a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities. Sue provides individual counselling as well as couple and family therapy.

The sessions last an hour or so and, because Human Givens is a brief and solution-focussed therapy, the number of sessions is kept to a minimum. To support her clients in between sessions and going into the future, Sue has developed a number of information/exercise sheets, saying "there’s no point in paying me for progress you can be making at home".

Most of Sue's clients are now self-referrals, having been recommended by previous clients. Sue also receives referrals from Occupational Health Departments, the Red Poppy Company, PTSD Resolution (a charity specifically for military personnel) and other Human Givens colleagues.


It is not an exaggeration to say that my therapy sessions with Sue Goodwin changed my life.

Before speaking to Sue I'd spent the best part of 15 years throwing money at 'standard' therapy in attempt to beat long term depression. I'd concluded that I was beyond 'repair' as it seemed therapy only resulted in more misery.

What struck me from the outset about Sue was her completely different approach to therapy - she listened really carefully to what I said, took the time to understand the issues and then set about 'solving' them one by one. One of the most beneficial aspects of her therapy is the summary notes she compiles after each session which provide an ongoing record of her constructive and practical advice to help you stay on track in between sessions and remind you how much progress you have made.

I could eulogise for pages about how grateful I am to Sue for her commitment and kindness (I didn't mention how much fun her sessions are too!) But I'll simply finish by saying if you want finally rid yourself of the shackles of whatever is preventing you from living a happy and fulfilled life, talk to Sue and she'll make it happen for you.

AJS, Acton, London

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for me. After just a few sessions my thoughts changed and I felt hopeful. In all my time of working in psychiatry, education and complimentary therapies, I looked for this magic bullet to remove distress for people. Then I found you. I can’t believe in so little sessions my life could be turned around. I will never find the words to say how grateful I am to you.

Mark, Bromley

I just wanted to let you know that I found a job, I now have a flat and a fiancée. You helped me and I truly believe I would not be the person I am today if it was not for you. I can never thank you enough.


It's been a year since I came back to South East Asia and I just wanted to show you this photo of me last weekend after I finished a mini-triathlon. And I wouldn't have that huge grin on my face if not for you, so I just wanted to say thank you.

Sue, South East Asia

Sue literally helped me turn my life around. Thanks to her, I found a path through anxiety and confusion, and am now happier and more confident in a bright future than I could ever have envisioned before.
