What would a session/treatment process involve?
During a treatment Suzanne Leighton establishes where the client is physically, emotionally and mentally and what they would like to deal with. She is led by them and deals with what presents that day. A safe space is created to support the client in their healing process and journey towards balance.

Counselling is combined with aromatherapy massage and reflexology which enables deeper healing than what can be achieved by talking alone.

A treatment lasts 1 ½ hours and costs R550

Many medicals will pay for the treatment as I can supply a practice number and an ICD10-code which they require.

Mental Health Awareness:

Presently Suzanne is using her skills in large group dynamics to run workshops at schools, in various communities and in the corporate environment to initiate conversations about mental health; the difficult topics of suicide, depression, mania, Bipolar Disorder, self harming and emotional instability.

Workshops are facilitated conversations, called “Integrating Polarities”, and can be arranged by contacting her.

Information about the art and narrative group therapy workshop called “The Hero Book” can be viewed here.

There is still space if you know anyone who might like to join the group later this month.
