Clinical Information:    
Sue Goldswain is a talented therapist who has been helping couples and individuals make significant shifts in their lives for over twenty five years. Prior to training as a psychologist she worked as an R.N in both general nursing and gynaecology and geriatrics. Originally from South Africa, she obtained her Masters & Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from UBC, specializing in couples and family counselling. She is a Registered Psychologist, fully licensed to practice in BC. She is also an Advanced Clinician in Imago Relationship therapy, and is engaged in ongoing training and supervision in Imago Therapy to enhance and deepen her therapeutic skills.

As well, Sue is skilled and experienced in helping individuals recover from stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, and all types of trauma. She has worked in addiction clinics and in schools with adolescents with addicions. She also worked with a multidisciplinary team in an in-hospital Eating-Disorder program at Vancouver Health Sciences Hospital as part of her Master's Training. Sue has Level 11 training in EMDR, which she finds an efficient and effective technique for the release of trauma, and to clear crippling and repetitive core scripts. She uses EMDR mostly with individuals, but will, when appropriate, incorporate it into couples sessions. She has trained in Mindfulness-Based-Stress-Reduction with Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn.

Since her early years as a therapist, Sue’s approach has been both Jungian and experiential, and she finds Imago relationship therapy to be entirely congruent with this approach, namely that it is our stuck patterns in relationship that are inviting us to grow towards healing and wholeness. In her view, what makes Imago Therapy particularly effective is in its structured creation of a safe and respectful container for couples to explore their difficulties and regain connection and passion in their relationships.

Sue brings a warm, compassionate presence to her work, a keen mind, and an on-going pursuit of excellence.
