When you have no choice but to adapt

We'll help you to transition from where you are now to where you need to be

Sometimes it can really feel like life has pulled the rug out from under us ...

... leaving us battered and bruised in a tangled heap on the floor.  We find ourselves with the broken pieces of our life shattered around us and we feel overwhelmed and exhausted by the sheer enormity of it all. 


Sometimes it feels like we have really been thrown a curved ball, and it comes screaming at us completely out of the blue; something so unexpected, so startling, that it hammers into us at full force, smacking us in the face, leaving us breathless and gasping for breath.


Sometimes, it isn't any dramatic or traumatic event that happens but a quiet whisper deep inside, telling us that we need to change and grow, that we are becoming someone different to who we have always been.


When change hits, we can feel as though we are no longer in control of our life, but rather that LIFE is controlling US.  That we are at the mercy of what is happening around us, and we are powerless to contain the fall-out.


While we are going through it, it can be the loneliest place in the world, as we have to navigate between the life we thought we were creating for ourselves .... and the reality of the life we have.

We'll help you figure out your next step

I know it's scary ...

... terrifying as hell actually.  But you know as well as I do, that sometimes we have no choice but to adapt to the changes that are happening in our lives. Where we have to leave behind who we used to be and step into the unknown of who we are becoming.


Anxiety and fear escalates, despair and depression threatens and we say to ourselves: 'What the hell am I supposed to do now?'


I know how scary this place can be.  And I also know how very isolating and disconnected it makes us feel, as we lose our place in the world that we knew  - and we are forced into a space of determining a new rhythm, a new space and a new world where we write the rules that will allow us not just to survive and feel safe,  but also help us to thrive and become truly empowered.


If there is one thing that I know inside and out, it is the subject of chaos, crisis and change. I have walked through countless life re-defining situations in my own personal life, and for the past 20 years I have helped thousands of people to navigate through their stressful spaces of transition and change.


Over the years, I have developed a series of Crisis Strategies that REALLY Work .... strategies that help you to move from where you are now, to a place where you feel powerful, strong and back in the driving seat of your life.


What people say


Munich, Germany

I was in a dreadful work situation where I was being bullied and systematically sidelined when the boss from hell took over the department.  It was affecting my entire life, and I was heading for serious burn-out.  Sue's strategies for Beating the Bully really empowered me to stand up in my strength, which changed the whole dynamic of the department.


I have just been promoted, and the boss from hell has moved on. 


Dubai, UAE

Both my husband and I have worked through Sue's strategies and support for infertility. She has helped us to navigate this dark, stressful time with compassion and gentleness.  


I am going through my next IVF in a few days, and feeling a lot calmer and far less anxious about the process.


Boston, USA

The last thing I ever expected was to become the caregiver for my elderly mother, when she was 93 years old.  It wreaked havoc on the extended family, but most especially on my marriage, the home, my sanity,  as he got weaker and needed more time and attention. Sue helped my wife and I to reframe and refocus our energies, so that we were working together with each other, and not seething in resentment and blame.
