A Unique Pathway to Inspired Creativity, Insights & Innovation
Coaching & Education Powered by Art, Informed by Neuroscience
Thinking under pressure happens via commonly used pathways in the brain - like super highways - which get us to the same place over and over.
But the same old or borrowed ideas can have costly ripple effects, and make our work ... meh!
Original ideas come from never-before-made connections between multiple locations in the brain. And to cultivate creative thinking, certain conditions can help enormously.
Brainstorming is not one of those ways. Research has demonstrated that brainstorming does not work.
So what to do instead, when we really need original, multi-faceted options to meet complex challenges?
Since 2006, I've been helping people bring forth their original contributions, developing an integrated coaching system for cultivating originality.
Because there is not one solution or a handful of hacks.
Creativity runs deep. And I've seen it re-ignite many times.
you can create the best conditions for making new connections in your brain for brilliant ideas; for epiphanies even

What they said -
Firstly, thank you for your very kind words and for sending me your paper, “An Alternative to Brainstorming may also help prevent Burnout.” … I very much enjoyed your multiple lens perspective and your inter-weaving of various experts angle and comments. If I may say; given that I have experience, what you refer to as your colouring session, ( I would call it your brain expanding and experimenting experiment) first hand, you beautiful provided a space and elegant process for me to have new things happen in my thinking as well as re-ignite neurons that have not fired since childhood. A wonderful example of small things having big impact!
ALLAN PARKER, Managing Director Peak Performance Development, Author of best-seller “The Negotiator’s Toolkit” June, 2017
"I often think about the process you took us through... there's an area of my brain that I've not explored since I was 5 years old. Your work is so different! It's like taking icecream into a steakhouse... I saw a whole lot of people doing things they don't normally do... you gave them an experience, and that's a validation in itself.”
LACHLAN CAMPBELL, Agricultural Innovator and Farmer
January, 2018: The work we did together (2015 & 16) seems to have opened up a level of motivation that wasn’t there before. I go to work more readily. I don’t have the blocks I had before – I do stuff rather than putting it off. At the time, I wouldn’t have noticed much difference but over a period of time something has changed and I’m getting more done. I’ve written two (epic bush ballads) poems and a song in the last year. I’ve had an offer to record my poetry and I’ve been working regularly and consistently on making 2 mandolins (my 4th and 5th). Before your course, I'd done none of this. I'd dream about it, but when it came to actually doing it, there was always a block - there was a fear of commitment, fear of success, failure, or even sitting down in front of a blank page. Now the fears are just not there. There's a gentle drive inside me to continue to do this stuff rather than fantasising about it... and I do, on a daily basis. I attribute this change to the work we did together - thank you Suzanne.

January 2018: I loved the way you connected thoughts and practice and explained the artistic side – I was fascinated. We were all so very different to each other in terms of where we came from and yet we all made meaningful work in your first course. You were able to connect to each of us where we were at, so we got to experience our own creativity and know it was really precious. That course in 2015 was the beginning of my creative journey. Now I won’t let it go! That’s what had been missing in my life, and it brings me happiness. I can’t live without this… it’s about having something that means something deep inside.
MARILYN POWELL, Forensic Archaeologist, Ceramicist, Poet, Photographer
January 2018: Since your course in 2015, I have an appreciation of how important it is to make; to reconnect with the present moment. This has been quite profound for me, while also being less judgmental of creative processes. I’m much more aware of the need for creative expression. Both my parents were very creative but it was a luxury for them and they stopped themselves. I did too, but now I can colour without thinking it’s a luxury. I don’t have to justify any more, I just know I need to nourish myself.
MAUREEN FLANAGAN, Teacher & Counsellor
...In fact, I would describe it as not so much a ‘course’ but a life changing experience. When I went into my studio at the end of the week, and looked through the collection of materials, and the varying evidences of my practice over the years I suddenly and deeply realised “ I am an artist!... I find my self filled with awe and inspiration for the magic of light, form, space and colour, expressing feelings and abstract ideas that cannot be realised in representation work. I have a new insight into my practice and feel empowered by this beautiful discovery...It has been a re-valuation that has transformed my vision of myself and my place in the world. I'm not sure words really express the magic I have discovered. Anyway, it happened at exactly the right time. How wonderful. I am so grateful that our paths crossed at this time.
