Former Headteacher, now I’m an Accredited Career Coach helping Teachers gain the self-belief to unlock their potential in the classroom and beyond.

Who Do I Help?

I help women teachers who feel stressed and overwhelmed by the demands of the profession to gain the confidence and self-belief to unlock their true potential inside the classroom and beyond.

About Me

Are you a teacher, stressed and overwhelmed by the demands of the profession? Do feel torn between your job and your family and worry that both are suffering? Have you lost the self-belief in your true potential as a teacher and beyond? If your answer is Yes!….. I know exactly how you’re feeling – how? Because I felt exactly the same as you throughout years my teaching career.
As a former Headteacher, teaching was my life for over 20 years; but so too was being a mum and a daughter and a sister and a friend and a mentor and a leader and a million and one other things that you’re expected to cram into 12 hours a day! Juggling the demands of the profession and the demands of family can leave you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, inadequate and on the brink of burn-out. Spinning so many plates, worried that one, or even two, or maybe them all would topple, fall and smash into a thousand tiny pieces at any minute, is exhausting, stressful and emotionally draining.
But, believe me when I tell you that it doesn’t need to be that way. You have the power to choose how many plates you want to spin. You have the power to control your work-life balance, without sacrificing your job or your family. You have the power to free yourself from the feelings of stress and overwhelm. You have the power to challenge your inner critic. And you have the power to unlock your true potential in the classroom and beyond.
I know….. because I achieved all of these things and more through the power of mindset. That’s why now I am absolutely passionate about helping teachers like you to find your power, through mindset, to take control of your life, gain self-belief in yourself and unlock your true potential in the classroom and beyond!

“I can highly recommend Suzanne. She really understands the pressures of teaching and the impact it can have on your life. She is warm, highly approachable and talks in real sense. Through her expertise and coaching sessions, she helped me to reconnect with my passion for teaching and reagin confidence and self-belief in my skills, so much so, that I applied for a leadership position and got it! Thank you, Suzanne – you were amazing” D.Maires, Merseyside

“I was on the brink of quitting Teaching altogether, not because I wanted to – I love teaching, but because of the endless pressures and the unhealthy work-life balance. Suzanne rescued me from making a huge mistake in giving up teaching. She helped me to realise that I didn’t have to choose between work and family. I could have both. I really enjoyed her coaching sessions because she always made me feel relaxed, valued and empowered. She helped me to reassess my values and free myself from feeling pressure and stress. I can’t thank Suzanne enough for saving my career and my life!”
M.Pippin, London
