I have been seeing Sue for seven months, during which time she has really helped me turn my life around and become more positive. I had been diagnosed with an auto-immune skin disease, weighed down with grief following a bereavement and pulsatile tinnitus (which was a constant irritation). Sue has not only successfuly treated all three conditions but carried out additional research and educated me about my own illnesses.
