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

People are People

Yesterday it was working with intellectually talented people whose aim was to create better versions of themselves. Today, I worked with OFW families who seek for the happiness of their children. No matter the topic, tools, framework I use, it all boils down to the same thing. People who want to love the best they can and will do anything—- stretch beyond themselves into the discomfort Zone to reach out and to love. Love, respect for the other and commitment—- those are the pillars that hold us up, make life worth living

You don’t need lots and lots of support. A couple of strong pillars do the job just fine

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.

Getting from ‘No’ to ‘Yes’

Many tense up in negotiations and feel that ‘it is not going my way’ when client thumbs down their offer. They don’t realize that the ‘thumbs down’ is the best way to get a more profitable exchange than they planned for. Why? because with a ‘no’, it opens the door for you to ask questions which then makes your offer more powerful than ever before.

Narrative Training

Keeping up the pace and learning still more new interventions makes me more resourced to work the toughest cases. Incest and abuse cases are often inter-generational patterns of abuse that are kept hidden by family members who are shrouded in shame. The family secret though always is played out — a black sheep; no chide not to speak of a certain uncle. The narrative approach helps most with such cases because with story telling, you get to see the family DNA. Here is our Psychobiographic Narrative Class Led by Fredrick Boholst

Rorschach!

That’s the Rorschach class late Thursday evening group coding a protocol as part of the learning process. here we are trying to code “dead bugs” on a rainy night. My hair has turned grey in the hairline, my Roxas scowl has deepened and these blots have just revealed a peep of their magic. This is the level of dedicated work us psychologists put into our therapy plans. Here’s To us psychologists who think talking about dead bugs makes for such an entertaining and engaging conversation on a rainy cozy Thursday night

Its Never Price. Its lack of Value

Imagine this scenario..you are excited about your service, you can’t think of a better package for your customers —the price seems right, it has the perfect bells and whistles, you added riders to make it even more interesting, And it can be customized to suit the unique needs of the customer. Off you go and offer it to the select few whom you believe will snap it up in a second. You dressed up, brought your A game, picked the right place to meet. And, after a few moments of showing off your new product…the client says “sorry, not interested”. Dejected, down and out, lost your stride, you are thinking to quit. Right way to go? WRONG!

Resource Speaker for PVPI on Wellness in the workplace

Mental Health Speaker for Wellness in the Workplace

My career has taken an unexpected turn …a happy happy turn of events. Because the pandemic has side-lined health in the workplace, companies are doing all they can to support their employees at these harrowing times. Wellness programs are in and its focus are no longer on company outings and Christmas parties. Instead, they direct their funds into meaningful activities which keep employees engaged on higher levels. Employee engagement and motivation is not about vacations, free lunches, and less work. Instead it is about job-matching, job crafting, and building collaboration across the organization.

Associate Professor at iAcademy

Class of 2021 in Human Development

Starting out the new year as an Associate Professor at Iacademy. Never thought I would end up in the academe ..yet it has been a wonderful ride. It is inspiring to teach and much more inspiring to learn. The youth, with their vigor and energy are engaging with new ideas brought by experiencing the world in a new way. The 20s of today are so different from the 20s in the early 1990’s. They are more adventurous , less afraid, more daring to be different, more open about life experiences. Good for them

Getting A Teaching Post

Teaching Developmental Psychology at iAcademy

This year starts with a associate professor’s chair at iAcademy. Approaching Clinical Psychology with a strong knowledge of developmental psychology makes the practice that much richer. Understanding how the environment, genes, social structures, and families impact mental wellness give me a more empathic approach towards my clients. It brings to fore as well how much I must pay attention to their growing up years when i formulate my treatment plan.

We are still at Covid and its almost a year now

We started the lockdown on March 13, 2020 and its now January 13, 2021. While there are vaccines on the horizon, the implementation of the inoculation plan or the availability is till up in the air.

Given this, there are a few psychological insights that can help boost understanding. To this, psychologists have studied personality and its prediction to following lockdown rules. Those who are neurotic, conscientious, agreeable, and open are most inclined to follow the ‘stay-at-home protocols. Openness is the most astonishing finding because you would think their adventurous nature would make it difficult for them. The finding however is that people who score high in the openness personalty trait get news faster and see how devastating world-wide Covid is and so they tend to follow the rules.

Yes, personality can help predict such things as these.
