About Preethi

Preethi & Benjy

Hello, my name is Preethi Sutton. I am a qualified and experienced Wellness coach and mental health counsellor. I have supported people facing challenges from all walks of life, including cancer. Growing up, I was a very empathic child and wanted to help people. Having dabbled in many jobs, I finally trained to study Chinese medicine and became an acupuncturist, helping many clients with their physical and mental health issues.

My clients found it easy to talk to me about their emotional problems which had consequences on their physical health. I could see how intricately mind and body were connected and the impact of separating them and treating clients purely for one or the other.

My natural instinct to want to learn more led me to train as a Wellness Coach and then onto the long journey of become a mental health counsellor (see my qualifications below). In addition to this, I am a mindfulness practitioner having studied with several world renowned Buddhist teachers.

At the age of 50 now, in addition to all my academic qualifications, I have gained many years of life experiences - growing up, learning to navigate in a patriarchal society, moving countries, learning to integrate in a culturally different society, motherhood, divorce, setting up and growing a business - have contributed to a long and interesting personal and spiritual journey. Each of these experiences have brought much to the rich tapestry of my life.

As a coach or counsellor, I offer an active listening space with compassion and empathy and promise to walk alongside you in making positive, lasting changes and seek a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

When you have a session with me, I can help you to connect with your innate ability to bring balance, harmony and a sense of well-being into your life.

So if you are looking for an experienced coach or counsellor who might be able to help you with anxiety, dissatisfaction in life, negative mindset, a feeling of not belonging, not knowing what you need but something is missing, or any other challenges, please book and free Compatibility Call so we can explore if we are suited to working together.
