Hi, I'm Suzanne

I  live  in Galway and help women & mothers like you,  overwhelmed and stressed, prioritise yourself ,bring the joy into your life and get your confidence back. Working together will empower you with the tools you need to put yourself first , guilt free, make good choices and create a life you love.

I have been where you are and felt how you feel. The constant juggling  of home and work every day , exhausted all the time, feeling there were not enough hours in the day, feeling guilty, frustrated and not knowing how to change things.

I worked in a demanding job , early starts, long days,  relying on creches, aftercare and it was REALLY hard work managing it all. I remember so many evenings racing back from meetings to collect my children. I was fit for nothing when we all eventually got home.

Looking back, I realize I was trying to be all things for everyone else and lost a bit of me along the way. I didn’t know what was wrong.

After a difficult miscarriage and receiving news of a school friend of mine in hospital,  I knew things couldn’t keep going the way they were. With so many plates up the air, something was going to give and I wasn’t going to let that happen.

I took the leap and left my “secure” job.

My saving grace was finding yoga.

I had started practicing it years earlier to help the aches and pains in my body. One particular class I heard my teacher speaking  about the power of our breath and it took my understanding and love of yoga to a whole new level. 

Yoga became more than just a physical practice and I needed to learn more about my experience. After years of putting my body under physical and emotional stress , I was feeling something different, a kind of release. I became aware of my inner voice and was finally listening to what it had to say.

I had to find out more about this incredible science and decided to train as a teacher, never thinking I would ever teach.  I still remember putting my first flyer through the door, physically letting it go and putting myself out in the world as a yoga teacher.

That was one of my biggest challenges and its where it all started.

One weekend, I cleaned out my garage to create a space in my home, my space for yoga. Before I knew it, I was teaching there.

My students are mostly mothers and women like me, with the same frustrations, loves, worries, dreams and fears. Our yoga sessions become a space where we have open, honest conversations after class about what was really going on. 

That’s where my coaching was born.

I watched people coming to class and leave SO differently.  Their posture, mood and energy was different, but I knew there were more ways I could help. 

I went back to college to study Personal Leadership & Executive Coaching and loved every single bit of it! I completed another Advanced Diploma in Mental Health & Wellbeing very soon after that and learned so much about how our beliefs and values can influence how we think and behave. I finally understood the true meaning of leadership and how it is so much a part of your personal and professional life .

My work as a coach has now extended to working with teenagers and young adults helping them manage their stress , overwhelm,  low self esteem and lack of confidence. I have learned so much from them along the way.

I am qualified to coach, but my own experiences really allow me understand where YOU are and how YOU feel. I bring this with me to each coaching session.

One thing I know is, although we are all think differently and are at different stages on our journey,  we all struggle with the same “stuff”. Why struggle on your own?

The first step to make any change is to decide it  IS  going to change,

The second step is to let others help you, you don’t have to do it all by yourself!
