We are Community

What we offer is; interesting, effective, professional, efficient, confidential, high quality, comfortably relaxed, super safe, solutions focused and trauma informed. It is behaviourally beneficial, healthy, emotionally engineered and scientifically measured, creative, clever, soulful, sound with successful results.

Our services are a bit like therapy, without the discomfort of sharing personal details. You can choose from permanent well being boosts, pain reduction/removal, emotional and mental health healing, habit ending, contentment creating, relaxational living with much freedom from suffering.

We also facilitate community projects, empowering groups and events.

Higher Effect is a Community Interest Company. What separates us from ordinary Ltd companies, is that we operate for social purposes only. We are regulated to ensure we deliver our social purpose, and cannot deviate from this role. This level of regulation, gives the added assurance for customers, financiers and the general public alike. 

Higher Effect was established to bridge the gaps, between mental health misconceptions, effective change and measured results.

We continue to educate and liberate our communities and other communities, from life diminishing beliefs, negative thought forms, patterns of being unable to change, and effective processes of personal change and positive evolution.

We have developed a range of tools and processes corresponding to each step on the healing journey of every person we support. These logarithmic methods, ensure consistency of practice and approach, covering areas such as data management, confidentiality, safety and safeguarding, risk management, support planning and feedback.

We continually assess and evaluate our practices, and ensure what we learn leads to improvements in our services, which are not like anything else, currently on offer.

Our services differ because;

“Most contemporary intervention involves an exploration of four common themes:
. Emotional responses to the problem (how we feel about what happens)
. The consequences of the problem (the effect of what happens)
. Examples of the problem (what happens)
. The diagnosis of the problem (cause and effect relationship and what we call it)

But here’s the thing – all of these are explorations of what the problem is not.
Let me explain. Imagine I hold in my hand a nice shiny new pen.

  • I could tell you how I feel about the pen. But this isn’t anything to do with the pen, only
    my feelings towards it.
  • I could tell you about the consequences of having or not having a pen. But this doesn’t
    tell you anything about this pen.
  • I could give you examples of pens. But that doesn’t tell you about the pen that I am
  • I could give you the reason that pens exist. But that doesn’t tell you about this pen in
    my hand.” – lifted from http://https//www.metaphorsofmovement.co.uk

Meet our Team

We have three volunteers currently working with us on our projects, photos and bios to follow. In the meantime, here the rest of us are….

Hi, my name is Suzanne.

I co-direct, and am a practitioner and trainer of our Change and Intervention Services, here at Higher Effect. I also train Integral Eye Movement, and Metaphors of Movement techniques, Maps of Consciousness and Alchemical Healing.

Over the years I have qualified as a Social Scientist, Emotional Intelligence and Awareness Coach, Executive Mentor, NLP practitioner, Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Healer. Before that I qualified in Chemistry, and operated as a Pharmaceutical Research and Development Scientist and Quality Management Coordinator.

I have lived experience of a variety of unfortunate realities, and I understand suffering and mental illness, more than some. I feel this is a gift in my role, and this is why I do what I do.
