Being coached by Susie was an amazing experience. I was struggling to move forward on a work-related project for which I had no enthusiasm Her skillful coaching enabled me to see my situation differently and find the motivation and confidence I needed to tackle the job. Most importantly she made me realise that when I set my mind to something I can achieve it and that, for me, aiming high and giving my best are things that can't be compromised.
Being coached by her also taught me much about what good coaching is about, especially how a coach can challenge a client to look beneath the surface, acknowledge what is there and use this insight to make real changes or take fresh action.
As a mentor, too, she has been superb. Her outstanding support, guidance and commitment have helped me to take my coaching to a higher level. She has been a fantastic role model, giving so much of herself, and her time, so generously and effectively. Her friendliness, professionalism, warmth, humour and energy have impressed and inspired me again and again.
Thank you Susie, I so much appreciate all you have given me.Dr. Geraldine Byrne
"My first impression of coaching was certainly a lasting one! In just half an hour, my outlook on my career had shifted 180 degrees. My despondency from so many disappointments had started to dissipate and I could feel excitement and enthusiasm creeping back in again. I have actions to take which will set me moving forward on achieving my goals. Thank you so much for helping me to begin to find my old self again - I cannot wait for my next coaching session."Sue Hodson. London
“Thank you so much Susie for the coaching last week. I have to tell you that everything has changed. After so many years being stuck & constantly being referred to psychologists, which never helped, just a small shift in thinking has made a huge difference. Last week I had my first ever facial at a beauty salon - knowing what you know you'll understand the significance of that! I have booked regular monthly appointments & feel a real sense of ..... freedom! Thank you.”Krystal King Birmingham
“I felt that you explained everything very clearly to me and this made me feel very 'safe'. Your questioning skills were excellent, they were not invasive but they hit just the right challenging tone to help me really examine what I meant. You had the ability to come at things from another angle when I got stuck and at the end of the session I felt that I had been listened to carefully and thoughtfully. Your comments were insightful and really helped to move me on in my thinking. I thank you as it was a very helpful session.”Karl B. - W. Sussex
"Susie's suggestions have helped me clarify my vision and expand what I thought was possible. Her gentle insistence on making sure to incorporate charitable giving into my business has changed my thought processes in a positive way."Taryn Gerhardt, founder. www.gogetitgal.com.

Susie is an optimist and lover of life. There is no 'impossible' in her vocabulary and this attitude is both infectious and inspirational. She will broaden your thinking and most importantly, you will have great fun working with her.
Susie is an inspirational coach and mentor, and I have really enjoyed working with her. She has a genuine passion for helping her clients and helping them get to where they want to be. Susie has an expert knowledge of marketing and social media and is extremely creative in her approach, helping her clients to think outside of the box. I would thoroughly recommend her skills and services for anyone who wants to thrive in business and develop themselves personally, to work at their best. Thank you so much, Susie :) I look forward to working with you again in the future.Debbie Mulford-Joy ... Sky Blue River - Cornwall
Susie and I took our foundation training in coaching together. Susie is primarily an inspiring and energising person who truly captures the essence and vitality of coaching today. Working with Susie will guarantee you are at the cutting edge with an emphasis on consistent, continual development. She brings a vast amount of professional and life experience to her coaching relationships, shared with huge generosity and knowledge.Julia Braithwaite Senior HR Manager at TRW Automotive - Midlands
Susie is energy and life. She is one of the most genuine and special people I have met. She is exceptional at what she does and probably knowing her in everything she does. It is a great pleasure to have known and worked with her.Zacchary Falconer-Barfield The Perfect Gentleman & Entrepreneur - London
On my search for a top class coach and mentor, I have often felt like a prospector looking for gold or oil - many dry wells and false digs - until I met Susie.
This was pay dirt, the big cahoona, the ultimate treasure. What we are searching for can often be found inside ourselves and that is exactly what Susie does. Susie in a remarkably friendly manner is able to get right to the core of any issue and help unlock the potential we have inside ourselves.
She does this though active listening, probing questions and manages to cajole the underlying motivation that spurs us into action to truly take the right steps that we need to take on our journey of growth.
If you are serious about coaching and want someone who is a cut above the rest, give Susie a call today, you'll never look back I promise you.

Susie, it has been a pleasure to connect and work with you over the last few weeks. I was not sure what to expect when I decided to participate in the program however I am very pleased that I did. In my opinion this is purely because of whom you are and the knowledge and skills you brought to the program.VERNIE WILSON - Solopreneur, Trinidad & Tobago
Your ability to manage each session with precision and freely sharing your experience and knowledge allowed me to see past where I was. I honestly have to say that you literally pulled me out of an emotional hole. I was stuck. I was especially impressed when you quickly offered up solutions and alternatives so that I can move forward.
Your expert guidance has given me new insights into my own self, abilities and the many possibilities that await my exploration.
Thank you for caring and for the wonderful support you gave.
I have been working with Susie for 6 months now (and am continuing to do so), because of several great aspects she has.
Where shall I begin...? First of all she captures everything at lightning speed :-), so I don’t miss a word of our conversation. This gives me the luxury to have a real-time written missive...
Second, she has the great ability to put herself in the position of her client (me) and hence actively contributes to the conversion. Therefore, when we communicate, we do so on the same wavelength. I have the comfort to talk to a person who understands what I’m talking about. Going back and forth, brainstorming, we are creating the product that is already there.
Last but by no means least; I’m talking to a person who has a great history of herself as well as a great level of awareness to become what she has become.
She understands and lives by the greatest lesson of life:
Greetings from the source,Tony DeAngelo. Entrepreneur - Belgium
I work in a professional environment where sometimes people's feelings and true motives can be overlooked, in an effect to get an end result as quickly as possible. I feel that I am fairly rare in that I always try and look beyond the "here and now" and endeavour to do what is best for all involved parties in the longer term. This takes more time and requires a bigger input emotionally as well as professionally, but I always feel that it is more than worth it, and without realising it, ensures greater profitability and repeat and referred business. In Susie Briscoe I have found a like minded person. She is inspirational without even trying. She encourages and nurtures without patronising. She gently leads whilst making you aware of your own strengths and qualities. Most importantly she succeeds because she cares. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Susie in any of her skills and genuinely wish her continued successJessica Hutchings, Senior Manager - Basingstoke
I just feel I need to say that it has taken me years to find someone real enough and able to see things so clearly from an objective position. You have helped me so much to recognise and tap into my truth and the positive changes are so apparent which drives me on even further. Thank you so much for helping me to find the courage to make such powerful changes to my life. You are truly a very wise lady with phenomenal insight and awareness. By the way my crystal is cloudy quartz with pieces of pyrite. I finally brought it home last week and it is so special. It’s presence is undeniable!
Kind regardsJacqui Bukbardis, Integrated Art Psychotherapist
I have worked with Susie for the past 6 years in her capacity as an exceptional and dedicated volunteer for Action Medical Research. For many many years Susie has spearheaded events and ideas for this charity that have gained us thousands and thousands of pounds, which ultimately has funded our excellent research and made a significant difference to the lives of people in the UK. I have found Susie to be an inspiring leader, a great team player, a lively and fun character and always open to get involved in any way she can help! She is an asset to our organisation, and we do cherish and value all the time and support she has given us over the years, especially when she is so busy!Sarah Stevenson, Action Medical Research
I have known Susie for about a year. She was my mentor and assessor during the Diploma in Life Coaching course, which I have now completed and passed! I have always found Susie to be a wonderfully enthusiastic individual who never failed to make me feel more confident in my own abilities.
Despite some testing times, she has managed to juggle her charity commitments, her duties as a mentor and her life coaching business simultaneously and all without letting down her students. Her coaching style is open and relaxed but never unfocused and I have always benefitted from her philosophy, both during and after a coaching session. She has a genuinely good heart and friendly nature which would make anyone new to coaching, feel relaxed and at ease.
I would fully recommend Susie in whatever coaching capacity she chose to adopt. I am certain that she would help anyone prepared to take up the coaching process in the same way that she helped me. It is a mark of my personal respect for her as a coach and now friend, that I intend to stay in touch witrh her.
Go on....contact her. You wont be disappointed.David Dingley, Fully Qualified Life Coach UK
