Trauma Work

Prior to training in counselling and psychotherapy, Susan has lived and worked within education abroad, including W. Africa, N.

Latterly, her work has included approximately five years in the area of trauma, with patients affected by the Balkans war, and also those from the Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Turkish Kurds. She is experienced in working through an interpreter when necessary.

During 2005 Susan spent two weeks in Phuket, post Tsunami- in a consultancy/support role with the Phuket Childline ‘Saidek Caravan’ project, supporting and training teams of young people and accompanying them to outlying schools affected by the Tsunami, plus, carrying out an audit of trauma regarding the residual affects re children and teaching staff at the target schools, which formed part of her report.
