Sue Sheedy Psychologist

Hi, I'm Sue 👋

For many years I’ve been supporting people in adapting to different changes in their lives, whether relational, working, or learning.  Talking to someone can be very helpful and I am here to listen.  Stresses of everyday life in these times can be very difficult, and reaching out to talk to someone is your first step towards gaining a sense of control and purpose in your life.

It would be a privilege to help you identify your challenges, and support you working towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life for yourself.
