Reclaim your Creativity
a customised 2 day small group studio retreat helping you find out you really are creative...
...and in the process experience calm, connection and soul-nourishment so you can restore a sense of purpose and function more effectively
Suzanne presenting in Jugenheim, Germany
Curious as to why participants were getting the results they were reporting, from greater confidence, being inspired, less anxious, more alive and experiencing epiphanies, I ran a survey of attendees from 10 courses held between March 2015 - May 2016.
Of the half that responded, 100% found the course content relevant and worthwhile; 89% found the creative processes were calming; 94% said their creativity was reignited; 78% said they were inspired to follow a new creative pursuit and 83% said their beliefs about their ability to be creative changed as a result of the course.
WHAT THEY SAID
Such a great course! I think in this day and age people don't take the time to unwind or connect with their creative side. I think what makes this a great course is the fact it combines both of these. E. Reid, Web Designer
I relaxed, had lots of fun when working on the creative part, and I had ideas about my future activity. It doesn’t even matter whether these ideas will turn into reality right away, I feel that that there will be a creative change of direction in my professional life. I also want to experiment with the creative methods with my daughters as a form of family activity. Thank you for your compassionate teaching. Grazia Micchiche', Senior Lecturer
Suzanne created a peaceful and safe environment, where I felt comfortable and at ease...Suzanne is kind, generous, conscientious and genuine... I owe her so much for helping me in building confidence in myself. J. Angus, Artist
Just let go of all your preconceived ideas and experiences of what you think being creative means. I was blown away by my own and others' unique creations after our very first experience. Suzanne’s instruction and guidance are both informative and encouraging. I highly recommend this workshop. Maureen Flanagan, Teacher and Counsellor
Would definitely recommend the course. It was part of a constant that has been missing in my Life for quite some time...Go for it! It just might be the encouragement and stimulation you need to open or re-open some area of your true being...like a 'Yes, I can!' It was so good to have expert instruction combining all sides of our psyche - a real integration of creative spirit performed in the company of like minds. Choosing colours is like choosing life! Thanks Suzanne. Marilyn Powell, Masters in Archaeology student
The weekend after our course I was together with my children aged 18 and 13. I told them about you and your work and they became curious. I put flowers on the table, paper, pencils...and we created the way you showed us. The children came to quietness, and it was very interesting for me, to see this! They created beautiful drawings, they were happy and then they gave them as gifts to the grandparents! Thank you for this Suzanne! Dr Simone Stoehr, Mother and Oncologist, Germany
Your course helped me gain confidence in my ability to be creative again. It reminded me of the joy and peace I feel when I am immersed in creating something... Thank you for such a wonderful experience. I am very grateful for it. Dr Fleur Adcock
Thank you Suzanne for a wonderful workshop. I came away feeling very enriched and inspired. S. Nugent, Teacher

Feedback after a mini-workshop for corporate thinkers in May 2017:
Firstly, thank you 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’ angles and comments.
If I may say; given that I have experienced, what you refer to as your colouring session, firsthand (I would call it your brain expanding and experimenting session), you beautifully provided a space and elegant process for me to have new things happen in my thinking as well as re-ignite neurones that have not fired since childhood.
A wonderful example of small things having big impact!

Caring for your Creative Self
morning or evening classes
Small group studio classes in the studio for people who wish to further develop their creativity with new skills and lots of one-to-one guidance so you can express your ideas with more freedom and confidence.
I always looked forward to each class. It was like a tonic to my creative self and well-being. Suzanne, your teaching and guidance was gentle and subtle and greatly caring - a listening and focused salve in an impersonal world. The intimacy of a small class is a treat...The activities seem so simple, yet have such everlasting depth. I wonder what insight and experience will follow from each class - a new way to embrace the world (I even looked fondly on the neighbour's cat!) and with calmness, contentedness and knowing that this is as it is meant to be. Anne Phillips
Suzanne...It has been a delight attending your classes, workshops and retreats - lovely experiences and lovely people. Both the content and the teacher are an inspiration - so keep on keeping on to delight and inspire others fortunate enough to be under your guidance. Joan Palmer
