Suzie has assisted me to arrive to a number of realizations in such short time. She has the ability to empower you, to grab the reins yourself and take control. Every time I left a session I was uplifted and energized. She creates a safe environment which allowed me to be truly open, and I thank her for her patience. Samar Thompson
“Suzie is really good at what she does, which is to help people manage their stress. She has used Bowen therapy, yoga, coaching and stress management to help many of my family members and friends over the past 16 years. Once people have been in the room with Suzie they always go back. She has a comprehensive understanding of the human body and mind and a knack for providing you with just what you need. Her intuition and practical experience is a rare combination you need to experience in order to truly appreciate it. ” – Antoniette Gomez, Managing Director
TO ALL WHO NEED SUZIE’S HELP… “Life had simply got on top of me. I was stressed and for the first time in my life I HAD to admit that I was depressed. In the past I had always been able to pull myself out of feeling ‘down’, ‘having the mean reds’ or just ‘feeling blue’. I knew the situation was worse than anything in the past as I realised I was wringing my hands and rocking and prone to tears if anyone looked sideways at me. This time, I needed Suzie’s help.
I fronted at my session with her, feeling on the verge of tears and kind of fearing what ghosties from the past would be revealed. My self-esteem, self-confidence, self-image were all low to non-existent so anything might happen. During the session, we simply talked about why I was feeling this way and so badly this time. Suzie’s questioning and encouragement was persistent but gentle. It was only me that was making it worse. She asked about particular things that made me feel happy, what I thought was one of my best achievements, and other pertinent things. As we talked about these things I began to realise that I had been and could be again, a worthwhile person and someone people would like to know. Suzie taught me several simple techniques that helped me feel even better about myself and my life.
At the end of our session, Suzie gave me my Gratitude Journal in which I was to write 5 things at the end of each day that had made me feel happy. Only 5 ???!!?? To start with 5 seemed a lot but eventually, I didn’t even have to write them down…everything was making me happy again!
I have to admit part of one session I found VERY confronting – but it was just me trying not to see the things Suzie was gently trying to get me to see. This, however, turned out very positively, when, later that evening I called my brother for answers that only he could give me. Oh the weight that was lifted from my shoulders!!
So, in conclusion, I can simply say that life for me is back on track. I try now, not to sweat the small stuff because it really is all small stuff! I go through the day smiling because I CAN deal with the big stuff. And I live today…there were some wonderful moments in the past and they are memories I treasure. And tomorrow? Well, it never comes because it is always today. And today IS the beginning of the rest of my life. Thank you Suzie, for seeing the good stuff in me and bringing it out again.”B Stubbings
“After struggling with increasing anxiety issues and resulting mental and physical health issues over a couple of years, I felt I was hitting rock bottom. I was suffering serious health issues and going back and forth to medical appointments and not coping with the many work and personal commitments in my life. I felt that I could not find a way forward or where to start. After a couple of trips to casualty with suspected heart issues and some possible mini stroke episodes, I needed to listen to the warnings that my mind and body were giving me. As well as following up on medical tests with specialists to rule out serious issues, I decided to approach Suzie regarding her treatments to assist with my situation. I had read through one of Suzie’s newsletters regarding her many different treatments and ways of addressing pain and stress management etc.
Suzie was so very comforting and I felt very comfortable to discuss my many and varied issues with her in our first consultation. After taking the time to really listen and understand where I was at and what I was feeling etc, Suzie suggested a personal treatment program which would include a commitment to a longer term range of therapies to address my situation. Through the appointments with a range of therapies including Bowen Technique, yoga, talking through issues with hypnotherapy and mindset work etc, I progressed from an anxious mess, not knowing what to do or how to start anything, to a much more calm, confident and peaceful person.
Suzie provided me with the tools to use to not only move forward, provide clarity and confidence to address my issues, but the techniques are always with me to assist when real life throws out continuing challenges. The program enabled me to manage my anxiety and provide the clarity to make decisions about my work, health and life that were much more beneficial to me both mentally and physically. Suzie has been an amazing support and teacher as well as competent provider of the range of therapies during my program. I always felt very comfortable and confident with Suzie, developing a relationship based on trust and acceptance. Suzie is very knowledgeable and capable in her areas of expertise, with an amazing, warm and caring way of guiding me through to grow and develop my ability to use a range of natural, peaceful and positive tools to enhance my life experiences.
I highly recommend Suzie and her therapies to anyone requiring assistance with their emotional and/or physical health issues, or even just to enhance their life experiences. I am continuing to enjoy my emotional and physical development through yoga classes and experiences with Suzie, and I look forward to continuing to learn and enjoy many new and wonderful experiences in the future.” Leanne Herne
I couldn’t have done it without Suzie!
Years of anxiety and health problems had resulted in my life becoming small and sad. When a major family crisis happened I knew I needed help. I had done yoga with Suzie in past years and knew she did coaching and other therapies. I rang her straight away and she fitted me in even though she was about to go away. That was the beginning of my recovery.
Our weekly coaching sessions gave me an opportunity to cry, talk and laugh and helped me see things more positively. Suzie was kind, compassionate and comforting. Just what I needed – I no longer felt alone.
One of my biggest goals was to re-enter the workforce. Suzie coached me through my journey back to work, providing support and encouragement. I have been working for nearly a year now which has had an amazing positive effect on my health. I’m well and happier than I have been for many years. My heartfelt thanks to Suzie. Jenny P
