“Sue Wintgens is a magnificent teacher of the Relational Paradigm. She is one of those rare people whose voice speaks from the depths of her soul. Sue informs, inspires and delights”

Hedy Schleifer, Master Therapist and creator of Encounter-Centered Couples Transformation

Trained in both South Africa and England, I have lived and worked in the UK since 2002 and run a private practice as well as presenting at trainings and conferences in the UK, Holland, USA, Namibia and South Africa.
Having worked with couples from all over the world for many years now, I am convinced that working in Intensives rather than sessions, gives couples the best opportunity to experience and integrate deep, effective transformative change
My husband Brett  and I opened the Kairos Encounter Centre (Kairos meaning a supreme opportunity for good), an institute devoted to helping professions using the concepts Encounter-centred Couples Transformation, developed by Hedy Schleifer.

My own life includes 5 children, 2 stepchildren and 14 grandchildren-and all the challenges that being in a large, dispersed family offers! Having experienced the pain of divorce and now in a happy marriage of some 25 years and counting, everything I teach and guide people into has been road tested in my own relationships.
