Sue provides Counselling, Personal Growth and Parent consulting/ Support Services with individuals, parents, children and adolescents including doing trauma work - all informed and guided by the Neufeld paradigm. Her counselling programs and services can often be funded and/ or costs reimbursed through Children's services, FSCD (Family Support for Children with Disabilities), and private insurance companies.

Sue offers nationally recognised and certified professional training in Equine Facilitated Wellness and Animal Assisted Therapy and personal growth workshops - again all following an approach grounded in the Neufeld paradigm.

Sue has authored a series of therapeutic stories for children - a great resource for reaching and helping any child, without triggering defenses. Stories explore topics including grief and loss, frustration, alarm, grace, holding on and the unconditional nature of love. The stories all star the ponies, dogs and cats Sue works with at Healing Hooves and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these books go to fund counselling sessions with low income families. Details of these books are available on the Healing Hooves facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/healinghoovescanada/ by contacting Sue at sue@healinghooves.ca and at some Neufeld conferences.

Most importantly, as a mother who also homeschools two daughters, Sue strives to follow Dr. Neufeld’s paradigm at home as well as at work.

Sue offers the series, Power to Parent I: The Vital Connection; Power to Parent II: Helping Children Grow Up; Power to Parent III: Common Challenges to parents individually within her private counselling practice, "Healing Hooves", and works with children and parents individually from this paradigm. She also facilitates these and other Neufeld courses in groups.
