Sue is a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the International Federation of Reflexologists and The Healing Trust. She has many years of experience as a reflexologist, healer, trainer and mentor. She has particular experience in reflexology for cancer and palliative care and is a volunteer at Sue Ryder Hospice in Cheltenham. She enjoys meeting people from all walks of life and is keen to support people to become more resilient.
Soul Midwives offer holistic and spiritual care at the end of life. They offer a range of gentle therapies to soothe and reassure and are skilled advocates and advisors. They are non-denominational in their pastoral support and encourage deep conversation with love and dignity. Their work may start from point of diagnosis and continue until the final day of life, always encouraging living fully until the end.
Sue is also a trainer in Tender Loving Care (TLC). This is a one-day course that helps someone to sit with people who are dying and make a difference. The gentle, loving, simple TLC skills can be used in any context – the home, hospice, care home, prison service, death café and within palliative care services.
Sue is keen to use her skills for the benefit of patients, their carers and other members of the community. She also has a therapy dog, Sally who is accredited through PAT (Pets as a Therapy).
Sue has also featured on The Isbourne’s podcast, Things You Should Care About, where she discusses her role as a Soul Midwife.
