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.


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.


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 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.

Increasing Competence in Mental Health

Am rounding off my PhD work with a few more competencies in research and statistics. this one was to practice newly acquired knowledge for a statistical procedure Confirmatory Factor Analysis. What I learned most in doing the work was the importance of developing diagnostic tools for use in mental health clinics that do not have much resources. By asking the right questions you get to help a client understand his health issues and work out a plan that leads to well-being

Never remain the same

Imagine if you insisted to do business the same way as you did before the pandemic came around…by now your business would have died or is in the verge of collapse. Never stay the same. Be flexible, ready to embrace new ways of doing things, ready to learn. Isn’t the dinosaur, the most powerful terrifying beast extinct now…are companies such as Nokia dn Kodak no longer in the market?

Success through Tenacity

Thank you Robinson’s group of companies

Many people give excuses for lack of success: they aren’t smart enough; they didn’t have the connections; they were up against popular, good looking people; they didn’t get any breaks. These are all rationalizations using the victim mindset. It isn’t only talent, ability to learn fast, or IQ that predicts success. Its doing the work day in and day out, and challenging oneself to improve daily that makes for success. Focus on an important goal, create steps to reach the goal, be willing to do the work, focus on your improvement through the process.

Bag of Many Tricks

This now completes my teaching semester for Industrial Psychology. I love that i get to teach courses that allows my students to do projects for companies therefore enabling them to put theory to action. Training psychologists, researching, a private practice for psychotherapy. My job never the same 2 days in a row

Recovery from Trauma

Many people believe that it takes only grit, resilience to make it through trauma. Actually, proper coping behaviors, good friends, and having meaning for living are stronger resources to make it through.

Often, my posts are on work and how to improve performance. However, the topics I love most are those that explain the within power of human beings to escape dark times and succeed. Grit and resilience is there …but it is a very small part of recovery. Belief in self-capacity, finding strengths within —thats what makes a victim more than a survivor. It makes them winners.Hat is still in the game for that PhD

Training Internationally on CBT to handle Psychosis Cases

Being effective requires investing in international as well as local course. Each new course provides useful techniques to make me more adept in helping clients. In this course, I learned the importance of understanding the the delusions of those with psychosis: why the delusions are on a particular topic; how important the delusion is for the client’s well-being; why the client is hesitant to let go of it even when it is obviously hurting him. Thank you PGH for this training

Guesting At Robinson’s

The webinar continues into the new Normal. Quite an apt topic after the election season. We all know the right thing to do but its what’s at stake that makes it difficult —power, prestige, environment, money, fitting in —these are what we face losing when we taken the high road

It was great to work with DOST folks in the middle of the pandemic. Engaging them in a workshop that develops their capacity to work well together will be important in many years to come

Joy in the Workplace

Many people think ‘oooh work, how mundanely boring’. whist your friends might feel they are stuck in a rut, you don’t have to feel that way. In fact, you can enjoy work by finding what is meaningful, doing tasks that you enjoy, and pacing your work throughout the day. Ask me for more tips on how to do this

Keeping your head above water

So many changes in the political front which are exhausting and exhilarating to watch as the elections loom. Each candidate is selling hope but do they have the political will to make it all happen. When we surround ourselves with supportive people, do meaningful things, stick to our principles we keep hope alive. Its hope that will help us cross rivers, climb mountains
