Let me introduce Myself

Suzy circle

When people get help, it becomes easier for them to reach their personal best and change for the better.

Seeing this positive change is why I love working with people, with you.

My extensive corporate and academe experience gave me grassroots understanding on how theory can be applied to real life, and with this, I am able to infuse the wisdom of academe science into customized programs that meet your needs. My programs consider facets of people’s personality, such as one’s life story, motivations, goals, traits, temperaments, and intelligence.

Being involved in NGOs like Carewell, A.C.A.Y., and IdeaSpace allowed me to work and train in a variety of cultures. This gave me the ability to look at problems from different angles, even integrate new and fresh techniques to my programs.

My exposure to various people gives a profound sense of compassion, empathy and a deep understanding of pain. Enabling me to walk and stay with you as your companion without judgment and to help you find the way out of the issue.

With my knowledge of Behavior, I am able to guide you in reaching your goals by solving your problems, tracking your emotional growth, but more importantly, shedding light especially in your darkest days. This strategy has successfully delivered tangible and measurable results.

And with this, I am proud to say that my life’s best work is reflected on all the people I’ve helped.

My Guiding Principles

Spirit Encouragement is the key to inspiring the person to move towards progress.

Passion To be internally motivated, the person must find personal happiness and fulfillment.

Trust Learning to trust yourself and being honest about your true desires teaches you to seize life fruitfully.

MISSION

To shine a light at the darkest point of someone’s life and show them that there is hope

To tell them that at any point in their life, they can change it into something that they can be proud of and will be happy with.

Like a “learning friend”, I aim not only to help my clients but to guide and journey with them towards finding real and concrete solutions to their problems.

I believe in the innate potential, value, and unique capabilities of every individual. And solving the problems that limit their success begins by creating awareness and empowering them with the choice to move forward.

Through skills that I have acquired and years of interdisciplinary experience, I design programs that deal closely with problems of varying frameworks: personal, business, pastoral coaching, or life coaching.

VISION

To see my clients live a life of happiness and harmony within themselves and with the world around them.

Problems create negative reactions and behaviours which create toxic environments. Approaching problems with a deficit mindset creates defensiveness, feelings of inadequacy and therefore maladaptive behaviour.

Through coaching, there are realizations of proactive and agentic solutions to problems. When people challenge negative mindsets about themselves, the other, and the situation, they can develop more helpful solutions that increase well-being.

The process begins by pausing and helping you understand that your world-view is not the only correct nor is it an objective view of the situation. Instead, they are the mere interpretations of our anger, frustration, and fear. By realising that all is interpretation, there gains a power to recast and change the situation. Once we move to a more positive stance, more proactive solutions are possible.

MY JOURNEY AS A LIFE & CAREER STRATEGIST

My expertise in transformational work is a result of relentless passion and hard work. Constant learning allows me to bring the best solutions for my clients and pushes me to continuously achieve professional degrees from world-class faculties and educational institutions.

What Our Friends Say About Suzy

Suzy's Continuous Professional Development

Champion’s Mindset

At the highest level of sports, mind conditioning is crucial to success. The best athletes always seem to get it right: despite the maddening crown of detractors, the heart racing and shortness of breath at tie-breakers, despite the pressure to deliver the winning point. They don’t seem to flake out, lose their cool, or melt out. Sports psychology played a huge part in their preparation for their event. Even when things go badly or the play is not in their favour, in the midst of devastating errors, ferocious competition, the greats have stood up time and time again with no sign of loss of confidence and win again and again and again. it is as if they are able to constantly pick up the pieces effortlessly. What makes them able to do so? How can psychology help overcome a devastating mistake and prepare for the win? By training athletes specific mind conditioning techniques: Imagery & modelling: managing state to remain in the moment; teaching them to depend on their mastery of the sport.

The champion mindset is about finding ways to deal with all the mind games that comes with stress and anxiety of thinking …”what is to come?’ and “what is to be”. And then replacing this by being focused in the MOMENT.

Continuing Education

Getting the accreditation to do ethical research increases the variety of services I can offer to corporations and Non-government organisations. It allows me to offer comprehensive solutions as well as keeps me abreast on the newest discoveries in this field go science

Yes, We Can Do More

School of Life Management Team: Planning Workshop for the Beneficiaries

Oftentimes, the problems of the broken hearted appear insurmountable. oftentimes, it feels like its useless to work on things. But, this group of ladies has an indefatigable spirit that keeps giving, giving, and giving. At this meeting, I had pitched a protocol for choosing the right girls to be beneficiaries of the centre. With a variety of disciplines and a heart brimming with love, a battery of tests were decided upon and a new batch of 10 girls were chosen for 2019. God bless these holy souls

My Cohort: Coco

this little guy is Coco. my cohort. He works with me everyday, handling the most difficult cases with gentleness and compassion. He intuitively knows when to approach gently, when to be rambunctious , when to lay down and listen. He asks for nose rubs and cuddles when he senses that they need a little more gentleness. Animals have so much sensitivity and innate kindness that they are very helpful in the healing process.

Burnout: the new challenge for the millennial workforce

Just a few months back, i guested on an online show for millennial executives. The discussion was on management of stress in the workplace. Because of the unusual work hours , constantly changing work situations, high cost of living, the young executives find it challenging to keep up with work demands. Because they fear humiliation, they keep the stress to themselves try to forget the pressures by drinking, partying, expensive lifestyles that they cannot afford.
This does not have to be. there are many positive ways to manage stress —managing emotions, thoughts, and feeling is an effective way. Through a framework meant to challenge thoughts, a more realistic view of the situation and a more proactive action plan can be developed.

Coaching Programs for IT Leaders

the way of business has changed since I began working in 1989. The young executives set up businesses on their own and become the decision-makers for multimillion businesses overnight.

And, I am lucky to get the opportunity to work with them! As they put their services online, they continually pivot and work towards improvement making their products and offerings more competitive worldwide. Because online businesses have a high mortality rate and because competition is cut-throat, these young professionals need support to remain at the top of their game. And, that is what I provide: tools and tips to keep them confident and resilient for the long haul.

Keeping up with Old Friends

In another life, I was a product assistant launching chicken nuggets when the McDonalds happy meals were just a new thing. today, I do work as an executive coach working on organisational development. And, in this life too, my old friend who was then a group manager is now the President and CEO of San Miguel Corporation.

Great Catching up with you, Butch Alejo

Another Tail to my Name

Just a few days back, I successfully passed the Philippines’ Psychologist’s Licensure exam which took place on October 28 and 29 2019 at the Sampaloc area. It was a great exam. Thank you to all the mentors and review mates who made the journey memorable.

Meaning Making

Dani Girl…never lose your sense of fun

The weekend finds me resourcing for Carewell Foundation on a play about a spunky child afflicted with cancer whose wild and vivid imagination carry her through the ups and downs of being terminally ill. As she tries to stay strong for mom, her sheer will to live enthuses her to dream up imagined friends with whom she plays with for sprinkles of joy in the midst of sadness. There are many good lines, but my favourite of all is “not having a reason doesn’t make a thing worthless”. Sometimes we are caught up in being productive, showcasing our capability, maximising every opportunity …all the make life worthwhile. Would it then mean that being fallow, resting, sitting with a cup of coffee are endeavours with no worth because they do not have an endpoint? The show suggests that all of life…all of its experiences have value just because they are part of what makes life beautiful.

Catch the play Dani Girl, running on weekends till 8 September 2019
