Sue Leighton

EFT Practitioner in Chesterfield

Hello my name is Sue Leighton. I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Therapist offering several different modalities to help you get to where you need to be. I am registered with both British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH). I have been in practice since 2014 and in that time have worked for several organisations such as the NHS, Women's Aid, Rape Crisis and other Voluntary Organisations offering Counselling and Therapeutic support to clients struggling with difficult periods in their lives, which we all experience at some point.

I know that reaching out for help can sometimes be the hardest step but it can also be the first step into a better space. I will ensure that you feel supported and at ease as you move through what at times can feel like uncharted waters. The process of therapeutic change can be choppy, but can eventually lead you through the other side with a new found acceptance of who you are and the confidence to make the changes you want to see.

I use a combination of Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) in my practice which provides a powerful approach to help you make positive and lasting changes to your life. I provide a safe and confidential space from which we can explore whatever issue you want to work through.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, I am working with clients remotely via online platforms or telephone but be assured that it is just as effective as face-to face sessions and with the advantage of not being restricted to location so I can work with you wherever you are in the Country.

I offer a free 15mintue phone consultation to discuss how we can work together and answer any questions you may have regarding therapy and if I am the right therapist for you. I work with adult 18+ and offer short-term and longer-term therapy dependent on what you bring. There is no obligation to commit to a prescribed number of sessions and you are free to end whenever you choose to.

Please visit my website at where we will find more details and the range of services I offer.

I look forward to working with you.

Abuse (sexual, emotional, physical)
Childhood Issues
Limiting beliefs

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work with a holistic approach to therapy. Often symptoms in isolation such as anxiety or depression can be better understood when we take into account the 'whole' of who we are and gain a wider perspective. Symptoms can often be seen as a 'signpost' to areas of life which are out of balance. Working with a therapist can help you to develop new ways of being and find better coping strategies so that you can become more resilient now and in the future.
