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.

Women for the Win:

Lead psychologist for a discussion on misogyny in the workplace

Last night was so much fun! many female industry leaders all in a single space all openly sharing the steps they are taking to make the workplace a more female-friendly place.Using theories from Bandura, Skinner, Uri Bronfenbrenner, Festinger came in handy as I navigated how women can remain a force in the workplace.

Lead psychologist for gender issues in the workplace

Are Couples Making Through the Pandemic?

Many couples coming for therapy have asked if their bickering, snapping, and impatience is ‘the norm’ among marrieds during the pandemic. Rather than give an opinion, I did some research to get a good feel for it. The gist is, not all couples are feeling stresses and dealing with it the same way. 1. Young couples are dealing better than old age couples2. same sex couples , african-american couples, other minorities are not surviving as healthily as their counterparts3. Couples who have unhealthy attachment styles are very stressed.4. Couples who were strong, committed, and grounded are thrivingAlways go for the evidence. Never the opinion. Seek the Sciences

The Good & the Bad Coexist Naturally

Artwork by Client

Many times, we think we will be happy when pandemic is over, or when you get that new job, or get a new car, or get to eat at that fancy restaurant. We think ” when life is perfect, then we will be happy.” Things don’t work that way. We cant wait for everything to fall into place before we become happy. Happiness is not an event. It is a state of mind. Live every emotion at every moment, trusting that in the bottom of even the darkest emotion like—– hate, contempt, anger—-lies love.

Focus on what is Important

The pandemic has taken a toll on our work life. We are inordinately worried about keeping our jobs. And so, we try to please the boss or focus on getting as much sales in so we can earn commissions.

Work this way and you will burnout. No boss is fully pleased with all our actions; we are not in control of our clients’ purse strings. Trying to control the uncontrollable will be like depending on other people’s whims for our happiness.

Instead of depending on things you cannot control for success and happiness, Look within. Develop your skills and strengths at work. That way, whatever happens, you will succeed.

Always move towards your best self

A personal brand is not built on a single day. It is moulded through years and years of choices and chances: the projects you take, the alignments you make, where you spend your time, and how you use your resources. Decide who you want to be and do the spade work to build towards that vision.

You are always your own solution

its easy to complain, easy to point fingers. But, if you want to create meaningful change, do the hard work yourself. Not only are you certain of the results, you also become more confident, feel better about yourself, and more sure of your capabilities.

Looking for Happiness?

Meaningful causes make us come face to face with our life purpose. They bring us towards our higher selves, the God within us, which is to deeply connect with others and creation. Finding meaning in life comes from forging deep friendships, finding a cause to serve, making the world a better place than when you left it

We often scream out a storm of frustration when things don’t go our way. Whist there are many reasons and forces that make a situation the way it is, we need to see how we helped create that situation too. Working in your mind how you got there will give insight to what changes you can make to get out of the situation: a change in behavior? maybe a new way of thinking? or developing all sorts of new resources. Either way, there is always something you can do about a situation to make it more tenable than it currently is.
