“The Only Constant in Life is Change.”


Counselling Services

Counselling is a collaborative process between a therapist and an individual. It is person-centred, strength based and each journey is unique and different.

Susan Hrovat provides a safe place for people to heal, grow and thrive. This allows them to live a more fulfilling and happy life that results in improved relationships and day to day functioning. Sue uses an eclectic approach to help people develop and achieve their goals within an environment that is non-judgemental, accepting, safe and confidential.

Susan has experience with diversity in backgrounds, cultural and spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, age, gender and levels of ability. She believes in the healing power of nature and the connection between our emotional, physical and spiritual well being.

The first step in developing a therapeutic relationship is to get to know one another and to determine whether there is a fit. Forming a trusting relationship is of paramount importance. Together we will work to develop a plan that is unique and individual to your needs and goals and to create a space where you can heal and grow.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”

Victor E Frankl – Survivor of Aushwitz


Resilience is that quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes like the Phoenix in Greek Mythology.

Sprout from Trauma

Everyone is likely to experience a traumatic event in their life. It is almost unavoidable. How people are affected, cope and recover varies greatly. Counselling enables a person to learn about themselves and about strategies that help them become resilient in the face of future adversity. Human beings can be changed by their encounters with life challenges, sometimes in radically positive ways.
