About Suzanne

I’m a cognitive coach and hypnotherapist. These tools have helped me to transform both my mental and physical health. Helping my clients to make positive changes in their lives is why I do this work.

My extensive background in education helped me to recognise the many challenges with exam nerves, lack of confidence, stress and anxiety. I wrote a book called Study Smarter – a lecturer’s inside guide to boost your grades to help students. I have a PhD in chemistry.  

I am most passionate about helping those who despite their potential, talents and strengths are holding themselves back and feel disheartened.

 My story

From my own experience, I used to feel so nervous days ahead of an important presentation. I would worry continuously for days. I couldn’t eat properly either.  On the day of the presentation, I would wake up feeling sick. I would be counting down the time and just wished for it all to be over with. I couldn’t understand why this happened for me. It was like a programme running in my brain. I never imagined that I could enjoy presenting or speaking in public and feel less self-conscious about it. But now I do (which was impossible for me to believe could happen) using the tools from cognitive coaching and hypnotherapy.

I struggled with food and emotional eating for many years when I was younger and my weight was up and down. My relationship to food was my coping mechanism and a symptom of an underlying issue which was causing me pain and suffering. Using hypnotherapy and cognitive coaching, I was able to break free from these unhealthy and destructive patterns. 

I learned from my own journey that whatever is holding us back from being our best versions does not have to stay like this. We are not broken!
