About me

Life has been busy. You became a partner, then a Mum or Dad, juggling home life, work and family responsibilities

Now that your children are older and more independent, you have some breathing space. More time for you.

This should be an exciting time……Yet you’re feeling stuck

It’s not always easy to pick up where you left off after a career break. Sometimes our priorities change, making us want something different, something more.

And why not? Being a parent is the most important job in the world, it’s going to be hard to find something that measures up.  Family can change you, your priorities shift and you want to do something more fulfilling.

If you're overwhelmed, feeling lost, stuck or uncertain about the future, life coaching can help.

Together we can find your path again, it's time to remember the person you were before you had a family to care for, and to love the person you have become.

Coaching can help you to create more quality time and space in your life. You can regain your focus and make your dreams a reality. Stop procrastinating and get the motivation to take action and create a life you love.

Work/life balance means something different to everyone, what does it mean to you?

I offer all new clients a free, no obligation call via telephone or Skype to answer any questions you have about how coaching can help you. Email me at to arrange an appointment.

I offer 1-1 Life Coaching in Witney and Oxford, or online via Skype.


“I reached out to Sue when I was in a tremendously difficult place and mentally and emotionally exhausted with my relationships, my work and life in general. I felt stuck and was unable to move anything forward due to guilt, shame and a lack of self care.

In the space of time I had with Sue coaching me, she helped me to understand my own strengths, desires, weaknesses and how to convert the energy that was holding me down and pinning me to a negative outlook, into a wealth of self understanding, self care and determination to take the steps I wanted to in all aspects in my life.”

“I would 100% encourage working with Sue to help yourself in any area you’re finding it hard, as I found myself extremely receptive to her methods, and felt a great sense of reward and optimism, that this coaching gave me the tools to grow. 2019 has been one of the best years I’ve experienced so far in my life and so much of it is thanks to Sue’s Life coaching”

Further information

After being made redundant in 2008 I didn’t want to return to the rat race. I wanted a better work life balance to spend more time with my family. I worked as a freelance writer whilst studying to become a life coach.

A serious illness made me re-evaluate everything.

I’ve been deaf in one ear since childhood, I learnt to lipread and coped well. In 2013 I was diagnosed with a cholesteatoma (a benign tumor) in my hearing ear. If left untreated it would have caused total hearing loss, face paralysis and eventually a brain abscess. Thankfully it was successfully removed, but some damage had already been done, leaving me with severe hearing loss.

But I didn’t want to let go of my passion for helping people achieve their dreams.

It may seem crazy for someone with severe hearing loss to work in a listening profession such as coaching. But this is where I need to be. And with modern technology, hearing loss isn’t the barrier it once was. I wear a BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) which streams sound from my iPad and phone.  This allows me to chat with clients online. I also have a microphone for meetings and noisy environments.

Most people don’t notice my hearing loss unless I tell them, but I talk about it anyway, as raising awareness of the challenges people face is just as important as helping people to overcome them.
