You’re wondering what’s happened to your life? When did you become so stressed, tired and stretched?
You’re fed-up of complaining to anyone who will listen about the long hours and pressure and how no-one understands.
You have lost your mojo and are no longer able to bounce back as you used to.
Your spark has gone out and you’ve lost your confidence.
You are wondering what it’s all about? And how your life turned out like this?

Get to know me
You have achieved success at work building your career or business but now things aren’t going so well. Every morning it feels like more of a struggle to get up and show up at work. You wonder how you keep going but you’re not sure what else to do. You feel exhausted and trapped and unclear on what to do next.
Having had a long corporate HR career in fast-paced organisations and twice set up my own business, I know what it is like to work hard but not feel satisfied with what you are achieving. I also appreciate the challenges, risks, the anxieties and self-limiting beliefs we must face and break through to create the life we desire. It can feel like mission impossible and then we get tired, exhausted or even burnt out.
Every day we are bombarded with more information and demands on our time and resources. It can be hard to switch off and to know when to put ourselves first. We continue to try to meet the demands placed on us. In the end, we feel like we can’t take any more. I know I’ve been there.
Now I share my experience, professional knowledge and wisdom so that you can step back and prioritise what’s important so that my clients look forward to Monday mornings again with renewed confidence and resilience.
Work with me
Whether you are an individual looking for support or a company looking for an external coach or facilitator there are a number of ways to work with me.
For individuals, I provide one to one coaching either face to face, if you are based in Berkshire or London or over Skype/Zoom or telephone if you are elsewhere in the world. For more information on my one-to-one packages pop over to my one-to-one coaching page.
For organisations, I coach on an individual or team basis. I know that you’re concerned when a key player is no longer performing. It’s not just about their impact on the business but also about them as an individual. And it can be hard for their manager or the internal HR people to help, I’ve been there, as both the leader and the internal HR person. I love helping individuals, work out what is no longer working for them and develop a plan to move forward, improving their emotional intelligence, reducing stress and building long-term resilience.
I also provide design and facilitation of learning and development events on topics such as improving assertiveness, building resilience, influencing with impact and the art of delegation.
The Confidence Cafe
As someone who loves to bake almost as much as she likes to coach, I would absolutely love to create a real cafe where people can pop in and grab a cuppa of their favourite drink and something tasty and cosy up and get some support on growing their confidence, resilience and mindset. A place where people grow and develop and ultimately realise their dreams. ❤️
As I want to be able to include as many people as possible I decided to try to create a virtual cafe
Imagine waking up each day and having a place to go that will give you a boost, a place where you know that you are good enough. A place where other people believe in you and your self-doubt is put on mute.
How would that feel? Amazing, right!All the learning happens inside a cosy Facebook group so that it is super easy for you to pop in and access as you want and the best bit is it’s FREE
Grab a cuppa, pop in and get cosy.
Take a seat at my virtual table, meet new people who feel like you, share and learn together.

Let me explain how I can help you …
As your Coach, my main aim is to bring out the very best in you.
To help you find the confidence to make decisions about the complex challenges you are facing and are not sure how to solve.
To help you find the strength to embrace change and welcome opportunities, and stop letting them pass you by. I know you have accomplished a lot already and are looking for the next phase
I am the sounding board you need to find more fulfilment. I can work with you to give you the confidence change direction at work, start that business, improve your relationships. You can reduce your stress and rebuild your resilience and get your health back in balance.
I’ve been a Coach for over 25 years now and I’ve seen the positive results coaching can bring, the creativity it can foster and the motivation that develops. It can be life-changing and it possible to do it with ease, if you have the right support.

Here’s a few words from happy clients.
Suzanne is an amazing lady who has a passion for helping others. The complimentary Confidence Cafe she runs is a truly wonderful way of her giving back. I have gained so much from it and highly recommend her skills and services.Karen Rosser
I was stuck with a major decision and had been going over every option in my mind for months and just couldn´t seem to find a way forward. When I thought I had found a way forward, I would find myself procrastinating and unable to take action. I was really at my wit’s end and didn’t know what else to do. I felt I had exhausted every option and didn’t think that more thinking time would help but I am so glad I decided to have a session with Suzanne as a last-ditch attempt.
Suzanne asks questions in specific ways to help you re-frame the problem and then we brainstormed for solutions. Once I uncovered the actual problem and discarded all the things that I had thought were relevant but weren’t, I was able to find a workable solution.
Actually, I had completely overlooked the real reason I couldn’t move on. At the end of the session, I had a clear mind and a doable plan on how to overcome the problem. Without the session with Suzanne, I would definitely have stayed stuck and frustrated.
In our intensive one to one session, Suzanne listened to all the aspects I was struggling with and really helped me focus on the issues that mattered most at this stage, rather than be sidetracked by the things that I would only need to deal with after I’d decided what to do. Once I’d done that, the decision seemed much clearer. I feel as if a weight has been lifted off my back and I can look to the future with relish.Sarah Stuffins
Oh what to say about this wonderful lady.
Suzanne is so warm, friendly, professional but above all, guides you with so much inspiration that just makes sense. I needed structure in my work life and Suzanne has given me just that. Sometimes in life, it’s the simple things that seem so complicated.
Very highly recommended.
Thank you so much for ‘sorting me out’
