Susi is a fully accredited Psychotherapist with IACP in private practice. She has completed many years of study in psychology, psychotherapy, and holds a Masters in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy & Motivational Interviewing. Through her extensive studies combined with her own incredible weight loss and fitness journey, she has developed an interest in helping people achieve a healthy lifestyle and lose weight. This has led her to develop the MIND OVER BODY WEIGHT Management Programme.
Susi has also attended a 3-day workshop at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia, where she updated her skills in CBT for weight loss with the most eminent expert in the field, Dr. Judith Beck. The Beck Institute is the home of CBT and Dr. Aaron Beck was one of the founders of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

2-day workshop on applying CBT & MI for weight management in clinical practice
11-week certification programme including the license to use the Mind over Body Weight management programme.
MI is a counseling style designed to help people find motivation to facilitate positive behavior change. This client-cantered approach is particularly effective for people who have mixed feelings about changing their behavior, and for people who lose motivation after a period of time.
CBT is a counselling style designed to help people understand how their thoughts, feelings and behaviours are connected. CBT will help uncover sabotaging thinking and behaviours provides a set of tools that will change the way people think and therefore the way people behave around food.
Mindfulness practice will help to train the mind to pause and become aware of sabotaging thoughts. Mindful eating will also help people to better tune into their experiences of hunger and fullness. Practicing mindfulness will also help with stress reduction. Stress is one of the main contributors to emotional eating.
I attended a two-day workshop on Weightloss & Management using CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness Interventions.
I have a wonderful experience on this training course and Susi is a wonderful trainer and presenter.
I learned a lot about the reasons why traditional weight loss programme’s have never worked long term for me and new techniques during this training course to overcome this.
I found that Susi was very helpful and put a lot of work into the content and delivery of this course and gave practical examples and demonstrations of how to apply this in real life with clients and for myself.
Susi gave me a huge amount of information based on research and is very supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend this course to anyone including psychotherapists, counsellors, nutritionists or anyone working with clients that are struggling with Weightloss and management, as this training course will equip you with the knowledge and interventions to help you and your clients to achieve weight loss successfully and maintain your results.
Thank you Susi for a very informative and practical training as I now feel confident in working with clients with weight loss for better successful and lasting outcomes.
I attended Susi’s two-day workshop on Weight Management using CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness Interventions.
From a personal and a professional point of view the workshop is informative and enjoyable.
There is depth to the understanding and application of the process in working with clients.
Susi’s knowledge, experience, warm personality and passion for this area is very evident….even through Zoom.
I have attended Susi’s first two day IACP accredited workshop on applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing with clients to support them in changing their lifestyle and to lose weight. Susi was a fantastic presenter and the content of the workshop was not only evidence based research but reflected on people’s experiences also. I am eager to implement the skills and what I have learned from Susi in my clinical practice to help my clients gain insight into their relationship with food and overall well-being.
Thank you susi for providing not only your knowledge in this area but for a really engaging and interesting workshop. I can highly recommend this to nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, counselors and psychotherapists to inform their practice. Thanks susi
I attended Susi’s first 2-day IACP accredited workshop on applying CBT and MI in working with clients with issues around food/weight. Susi is a very engaging trainer, the materials she presented are well researched and evidence-based, and the workshop was interactive and informative. The training will be particularly helpful for psychotherapists or nutritional therapists in working with clients with emotional eating behaviours and in changing mindsets to decrease sabotaging behaviours. Thank you Susi
I am delighted that I decided to attend Susi’s workshop. I got so much from it and I can’t wait to implement it through my coaching practice here in Donegal. Susi delivers in such a relaxed and informative way making the learning a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable process. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Susi
Susi is very knowledgeable about the role CBT plays in weight management. As a practitioner, she’s given me practical tools that I can utilise in my business as a Nutritionist.
