Suzanne’s ability to work with people at a deep level, and quickly, sets her apart in her field of behavioural change. She provokes critical and generative thinking that impacts her clients, causing long lasting inner change.
An intense passion drives Suzanne. She holds a strong belief that people should live their lives fully and to their own standards. That many people in life and within organisations live with emotional un-awareness or self-limiting thinking, thinking that doesn’t serve them and wastes their precious time and inhibits results.
Whilst Suzanne knows her human behavioural change qualifications are important, it’s the life lessons she’s learned along the way that really qualifies her. Having had a difficult life for many of her earlier years such as living with a foster family, becoming homeless at age 15, and having many difficult experiences through her teens and 20’s – it’s these experiences and lessons that inspired Suzanne to find the peace, happiness and success that she enjoys today.
Suzanne’s research through her own Masters Degree in Coaching, enabled her to find a model of excellence that shows how leaders really can lead beyond themselves, and uncovers psychological determinates to support this type of leadership. Suzanne is the published author of A Flourishing Mind, a book that tells her uplifting and powerful story with poignant learning’s and messages that brings real change in the minds of those who read it.
Suzanne spent many years working in organisational development and change, facilitation and coaching, and has a vast understanding for the humanistic business world she works within. She now spends her days coaching, speaking and writing all around the world! Suzanne has delivered her talks in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and currently emerging in USA and Hawaii.

She is also a director on a board for Uniting for Homelessness, which seeks to reduce Perth city homelessness by more than 50%, and move people into employment.
