Suzanne is a Registered Nurse with an MSc in Advanced Healthcare and a Diploma in Professional Coaching and Mentoring.

After a variety of management roles in acute services, she was instrumental in establishing the Renal service for Berkshire from design to delivery, which gained a national reputation. Suzanne went on to regularly chair sessions and speak at both National and International conferences in the field of Nephrology and patient empowerment to improve clinical and psychological outcomes.

She has lectured in Nurse Education at degree level, for Thames Valley University, written an accredited Diploma course and has a number of academic publications.

Suzanne graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a Master of Science in Advanced Healthcare Practise before working at Microsoft as Clinical Manager of the Wellbeing Centre. There she developed the profile and reputation of the onsite healthcare provision establishing a number of new initiatives and integrating existing services. Viewed as Microsoft UK’s expert in the field of employee wellbeing, Suzanne developed research with Clinical Psychologists, delivered organisational audits and was actively involved in the field of stress management, speaking and writing articles for leading institutions such as Henley Management College.

She developed and delivered training programmes for managers, designed specialist support programmes for Interns and graduates and worked with HR, contributing to Healthcare policy.

Before founding her own consultancy practice, she established an innovative ‘in house’ coaching service for Microsoft employees which was held in high regard. It was outcome focussed with sustainable behavioural changes.

Suzanne has since worked with a number of global organisations and SME’s providing insight into how individuals and teams work under pressure. She takes time to understand the issues and political environment, whilst helping to develop healthy, productive employees in a credible and refreshing way.

She has recently developed a specialist service for a number of Law firms, providing solutions focussed coaching to clients going through challenging times.
