More recently Susan has used the skills and training to work in the criminal justice system including her work with capital prisoners. Susan is also passionate about her work with young people, hence leading to the development of mental health support in schools along side her commitment to foster children for Stockport Borough Counsil.
Susan has been actively involved in the community, working with vulnerable adults, including Military veterans, and supporting youth in a pastoral capacity in schools.

The focus of MOL therapy is for the therapist to let go of their own attempts to control the ‘individuals’ experiences, and this occurs best by creating conditions for the client to sustain their awareness on their higher level goals long enough for them to start to experiment with changing them or considering them differently. Mode Rehabilitation offers MOL therapy as is most effective, when working in individual therapy. Control is an experience held in common by every human being.
