There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.

You are the project
This is James from Geneva. Early in 2015, I worked with him and his wife while I was artist-in-residence in a boutique hotel in Tuscany, Italy.
Professionals in their areas, they dived into my session.
It was supposed to be an hour. Magic happened. Hours passed. They explored and discovered like innocent children... It was not just what they made, it was the process they went through that was beautiful to witness. They inspired me!
Common ways of responding to the pressures of life are pushing and rushing. We can't sustain this way without personal cost. Depleted and disconnected from a sense of purpose and fulfilment, life can seem without colour.
Working with me is radically different. You can live your 'true colours'...
Stir your curiosity, delight your imagination, upgrade your thinking and nourish your being all at the same time.
What they said:
You’ve got serious skills Suzanne, in helping people to creatively “see” what they may not be able to see in themselves! This has been my experience of you, as your suggestions to me early-on in our work together have been of immense help to me and, I believe, my business! BRUCE MANAKA
I engaged with Suzanne in one of her coaching programs and, what an interesting experience!...What I experienced was a time of healing - old wounds, assumptions, hurts... I’ve done similar work in the past but this experience took me deeper into what needed to be cleared, so as a result I feel like I’ve shed so much constriction around who I am and what’s possible for me. I feel a greater sense of openness and more equanimity with regard to giving and receiving. What's interesting is that the older we get, the more we think we've gotten past all of that old "stuff" but in truth, when you deliberately revisit your past self, in this deeply guided way, you realize that it's all still there and the only way to heal is by saying what needs to be said. That's what you'll experience with this very moving process. CAROLYNE SIMI, CEO, C.P.C.
It’s almost a year since I completed my 6-month coaching program. The biggest thing I got out of working with Suzanne was confidence; I became more self-assured and stronger. I found contentment and came to understand that there’s often hard stuff to deal with, but these are opportunities for personal growth. I certainly grew! Feeling more calm within, I’m also able to see and understand others better and accept them for who they are, aware of what I’m responsible for. Overall, the impact has been empowering – thank you Suzanne! JANET ANGUS
Suzanne helps us realise our creative potential. She applies high level skills and expertise in her field, with a warm, caring approach and down-to-earth wisdom. She has a rare gift for gently guiding deep thought and drawing out the innate creativity that we all possess but often don’t explore for various reasons. She is a trusted guide on a journey to enrich our inner life and nurture our creative self. ROBERT PAINTER
