Praise – UpSurge

Everyone enjoys ‘feeling the love’!  It’s such an privilege to support someone and it really gives me the warm fuzzies when good things start happening in their world.

Personal Feedback

Why did you contact Suze?

I am nearing 40 and with my youngest child starting school in less than two years I wanted to start planning a return to the workforce. However, I was reluctant to go back to my previous career and wanted help from Suze to identify and plan for an exciting and fulfilling career change.

Did you have any hesitations around working with her?

I had no hesitations about working with Suze personally as I had previously met her through our mutual love of horses. My only hesitation was in taking the first step down a new and potentially challenging path.

What mindset changes have you noticed?

Since working with Suze I have noticed that many of the old limitations I had created for myself have started to fall away and be replaced with the belief that I can make things happen.

What behaviour changes have you noticed?

As a result of the sessions we have had, I have identified a potential path for following my passion and working with horses. Once I identified this my behaviour has changed to start making it a reality. I have begun studying and will be attending some training later in the year. This was only possible once Suze had helped me identify what I really wanted. “Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor” and Suze’s coaching got me out there!

What was the favourite specific feature of your coaching with Suze?

The best thing about Suze’s coaching is that she is such a caring and empathic person. A coaching session is like chatting with your best friend and I immediately felt able to share anything that came up. Suze has many tools for getting to the heart of the matter and I always feel positive and uplifted after a coaching session.

Would you recommend her coaching?

I would absolutely recommend Suze’s coaching because I can feel the benefits and changes in myself.

Is there anything you would like to add?

Many of the issues I have discussed go beyond career coaching but because Suze takes a holistic approach to mentoring and coaching she has understood my road blocks and helped me to clear these out of the way so that I’m truly free to set out on the path to achieving my goals.

I had the honour of working with a lovely lady during a riding clinic.  This was a clinic that she had been looking forward to with great anticipation and unfortunately her nerves had got the better of her on the first day.  One the second day we weren’t going to let that happen…

After my first lesson my focus and energy was scattered and fragmented. I had time to critique my video overnight (that Suze had kindly taken) and thought I had not been in my zone /power. With Suze’s coaching the morning of my second lesson, she helped me settle my emotions, re-focus on what was important and what I wanted to get out of my second lesson and how to achieve that. I felt more grounded and capable after Suze’s mentoring.


Why did you contact Suze?

I just had a very sick pony and then my other horse became sick as well (Although not as sick) although my ponies were both healing I was in a constant state of worry even though I knew it was unsubstantiated.

Did you have any hesitations around working with her?

Absolutely none _ I’ve always found Suze a calming influence on my and she naturally makes you trust her as she so “soft” (Hard to think of another word but that’s how you feel in her presence)

What mindset changes have you noticed?

I’ve stop worrying mindlessly, especially at night or before I get to the paddock.  When I do worry I stop and think about what’s actually in my head.  She also gave me some techniques like deep breathing that has helped.

What behaviour changes have you noticed?

See the last comments but yes – Even my husbands noticed that I’m not so stressed or ‘Panicked” without actually putting my finger on why.

What was the favourite specific feature of you coaching with Suze?

Obviously the fact that she could talk to my horses… and tell me what they were thinking but also the fact she put my fears in perspective (And more logical)…  and just made me think about things I hadn’t ever thought about.

Would you recommend her coaching?

Absolutely – definitely – Wouldn’t hesitate at all – I noted a big change – Suze has a gift and she should be able to share it…

Is there anything you would like to add?

Thanks Suze xx

Group Feedback

I had the fabulous opportunity to talk to group of horse riders about the effect their intentions and belief systems have on their riding – incase you hadn’t guessed already I am a horse lover from way back!  They had these lovely things to say (thanks very much ladies!)

Recent comments from a ‘Mastering the Mind Game of Riding’ Presentation:-Sooo interesting. You held my attention until finished
-You were great. Very clear and thought provoking.
-Extremely interesting & pertinent. Fabulous conversation to explain topics. Such a relevant topic yet not a lot of information our there about it.
-You remind me of Steve Gurney – passion, love, so much energy. Keep it up!


You might think I only work with horse people from reading this but no, I have worked with artists, a grief councilor, a jeweler, a frustrated professional seeking more meaning than returning to a soul sucking job after motherhood, a lovely lady struggling to feel safe at the prospect of moving house, a man who desperately didn’t want to repeat the failures he had had in past businesses…an absolutely joy and privilege to support each and every one of them.
