About me

Hi, I'm Suse.

I work with women 40+ who want to regain their confidence and gain clarity in their lives. I mostly work with women business owners and women in the creative/digital industries, fin and tech.

Is this you?

  • Are you frustrated at your lack of progress towards a specific goal you have for your life?
  • Are you feeling stuck? In your current job, your personal circumstances?
  • Do you look at your peers and question why you’re not where they are?
  • Have you hit a transition point in your life where you don’t know who you are anymore? Midlife? Menopause? Retirement?
  • Are you struggling with some aspects of your team at work and how you can create value in your team with your team leadership?

I can help you with honest, insightful coaching conversations. The aims of your coaching with me are set by you, whether that's personal development coaching, confidence building, focused goals, career coaching or just the thinking space every couple of weeks to work through an issue that doesn't line up with your values in work or life.

Coaching programmes offered:

1:1 Team Leadership and Life Coaching
I can help you with
= Progress towards a specific goal you have for your life
= Developing your team leadership skills
= Creating greater communication and results with your team
= Finding joy in your current job
= Time management and life’s time management
= Rediscovering your own power and energy
= Working out your career values and vision

Female founders business coaching:
Only 1 in 3 UK entrepreneurs is female. With time, life and confidence pressures, many women don’t see their Big Visions for their own businesses fulfilled.

I work with women business owners at every stage of their business, from ideas, to growth and sometimes to closure and next steps. With you at every step, my business coaching is part coaching, part advice, part accountability partner and fully helping you.

COVID-19 UPDATE: All discovery calls and all coaching programmes are now online via Zoom.

The process
Step One:

If you're thinking about getting a coach, the process is easy. Book a free coaching consult here: https://calendly.com/susecoaching/discovery-call-with-suse-b-bentley

This call will be about the practicalities of coaching (when, where, how often, how much) but also is a great way to figure out your connection with me by experiencing some coaching with me.

Step Two:
If you're ready to start coaching and truly invest in time for yourself, we can
= get your first coaching session in the diary
= agree on your time commitment for coaching (3 or 6mths for Team Leadership or Life coaching; 3, 6 or 12 months for Business coaching)
= reflect on where you're at right now and where you want to get to with your pre-coaching questionnaire
= start coaching!

OR your shortcut to coaching:
If you've got something you want to work through or are stuck on and don't have the time for a longer coaching commitment, you can book a Day of Voxer or a 2hr Blitz session direct from my website.

I hope this information helps you decide on whether coaching with me is for you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Here's what some of my clients have said about their coaching experience with me:

"I gained SO much from my sessions with Suse. I was blown away by how important and how transformational this process has been for me.
I can honestly say this process has contributed to my well-being. I feel so much happier in my role, I feel so much more equipped for dealing with difficulties in my team. My responses to recent situations as a result of this coaching experience have definitely benefited my team but they have empowered me. I am a stronger, happier leader who now includes myself in decisions at work." - Team Leadership Coaching Client.

“Suse is leading the way forward with her style of coaching! Perfect for people working from home, entrepreneurs.
Suse’s coaching style has a can-do approach. If you’re looking for motivation and a helping hand in the right direction, Susan is your coach.” - Voxer for a Day Coaching Client
