There is MUCH MORE to overall health than just your gut or environmental toxicity. These are important factors that impact your wellbeing but there are other even more important factors that also contribute to health and wellbeing.

They are the psycho-energetic components that impact health and well-being. If repressed emotional content, limiting beliefs, unresolved trauma and emotional triggers are not identified and removed, recovery will be either temporary or incomplete…read more

There is NO chronic illness without a psycho-energetic component. It is like a piece that is necessary to complete a puzzle. The psycho-energetic component is the missing piece that is crucial for attaining optimal wellness but hardly ever considered by conventional medicine.

Integrative Wellness focuses on a model of well-being that takes into account all aspects that contribute toward overall wellness…the physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, energetic and environmental components. It draws on whatever approach – traditional or alternative – that will best serve the client towards attaining a state of vibrant health and wellness.

The traditional western model of health and wellness is defined by a diagnostic approach that addresses only the symptoms of the disease and not the cause. The Integrative Model addresses the issues that underlie the cause of dis-ease…the missing piece required to complete the puzzle.

The integrative model of healthcare places the client at the centre and uses healing modalities that address all aspects to facilitate wellness.
At Sue Leppan and Associates we firmly believe that overall wellness is only possible through a process of integration and education.

Quantum Physics

The foundation of the integrative approach to health and wellness is based upon a deeper understanding of reality as described by Quantum Physics.

Quantum Physics emerged as a new scientific standard and model for interpreting reality about 50 years ago. It sparked discussions of the sciences versus spirituality and consciousness and transformed the core of how we perceived society and revolutionised our view of reality. It also impacted the field of wellness and medicine.  As a result, addressing the underlying mental processes that underpin wellness has emerged as a major component of this new perspective of reality. The focus was redirected from treating the patient’s symptoms with drugs to identifying and removing the cause underlying the dis-ease.


The old paradigm described the brain as a fixed entity that could not be influenced or changed once adulthood has been reached. This belief is an extension of the belief that most diseases are pre-determined by our genetics and that there is nothing you can do about it. Once neuroscientists started to accept brain neuroplasticity as a reality, the next step was to implement suitable technologies that allow for the rewiring of the brain. This new concept has completely revolutionised the field of psychology, medicine and wellness.


In an updated curriculum of wellness, biology is redefined and expanded to include the stunning concept that your system of beliefs can modify your genes referred to as epigenetics. (Bruce Lipton, Biology of Belief). (1) This encapsulates the expression:

You become what/how you think/believe.”

Sue Leppan from Sue Leppan & Associates refers to this as “Your biography becomes your biology”

Dr Joe Dispenza, a pioneer in the field of neuroplasticity, has revealed that you can create new behaviours by deliberately rewiring your brain through the process of neuroplasticity. You can create new neural pathways in your brain that alter your way of thinking to aid wellbeing. (The Brain & Neuroplasticity) (2)

Dr Amit Goswami also points us in the direction of the possibility of creating new brain circuitry by implementing new behaviours. Neuroplasticity plays an important role in integrative wellness and is certainly the core of what Dr Goswami described as the stage of manifestation in the process of spontaneous healing in his book Quantum Doctor. When we release old habits and thought patterns that no longer serve us and set into motion healthy alternatives we change the neural pathways in the brain through the process of neuroplasticity.

The main challenge that a health practitioner encounters is how to support the client to remove the old habits and ways of thinking that do not serve them in the process of attaining wellness. These old habits and thoughts are part of the process that created their health problems in the first place. The solution lies in adopting a new way of viewing life and our place in it. To facilitate such a process necessitates the use of specialised modalities that have been proven to bring about the desired change. At Sue Leppan & Associates our team is qualified in the application of the following integrative modalities that have been developed to bring about the desired change: Trauma Release Therapy®, Transformation Coaching®, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Brain Entrainment Therapy®, Energy Codes®, Bio-Energetic Synchronization Techniques (B.E.S.T) Practices®, Holotropic Therapy.
