The problem

“I recently saw Susanne for coaching after I found out my business partner of seven years had been embezzling money. My whole world was shaken-up, like being inside a snow globe.  I felt foolish, betrayed and anxious so I enrolled in a 6-week intensive TA program with Susanne to help me navigate through a period of confusion and stress.

While I was motivated to resolve the issues in my professional life, what I learned from Susanne has had far greater impact on all aspects of my life including my relationship with my parents, husband and kids.

Susanne’s approach

Susanne’s approach is very different from other forms of therapy because she taught me a theoretical framework for understanding how I was relating to others as well as the conversations I was having with myself. I have a greater understanding of how my internal dialogue is like a computer program that is out-dated and needs regular upgrading. I am now more aware and make all decisions with a renewed perspective.

Susanne is organised, methodical, insightful and practical – therefore an excellent person to offer anchorage during a storm.

First impressions

“I met Susanne thanks to a friend who is a doctor and psychotherapist and recommended her as a coach. I searched for her name on Facebook and accidentally I also found in our town a poster with her picture on it.
In both places her face impressed me as agreeable and friendly. As I completely trust the friend who recommended her and seeing her face made me think she was also a person I could trust. So I decided to contact her and I am very happy I did.

The problem

I had never done coaching before, but other types of personal therapy, and I went to see Susanne due to a lack of satisfaction with my job. It was a bit of a chaotic time in my life and Susanne helped me to structure my chaos. With Susanne I learnt to use the first person more often. What I mean is that I learnt to say “I” when talking about desires, emotions, thoughts, instead of generalising or “beating around the bush”. I also learnt, and this has been vital for me, that we cannot save or rescue anyone in the existential sense of those words.

Another important message I carry with me after the sessions is to ask myself “What is the benefit?” Because there is always some emotional benefit in what we or others do. Even when it might not be obvious and even when those behaviours might seem irrational or meaningless at first glance.

During the time I was having sessions with Susanne that was a space where I could look after myself, and also cry, laugh, think, reflect, dream… Susanne is a woman of firm character, but also a warm woman and she knows when she needs to be more of one thing or the other. She is like a “nourishing mother”.

Changes

At the moment I keep doing the same job as before, but my internal world has changed and I feel more content and in any case I feel stronger in the face of making changes in my life, and not only job-related. I recommend doing coaching with Susanne if you need help in making positive changes in some area of your life.”
