What is a life coach?

A life coach facilitates positive change in you to help you:

  • build confidence
  • set and achieve goals
  • overcome anxiety and mild depression
  • cope with stress and disappointments
  • manage time
  • balance work, life and illness.

A life coach helps with personal and professional challenges.

What do I need to do?

We'll have honest, open conversations about personal issues. To get the most from coaching, you need to commit to sessions and the process. We'll discuss what you want to achieve from coaching, your strengths and weaknesses, obstacles that hinder you and how you can overcome those. We may discuss goal-setting and you'll decide your priorities.

What to expect from me

During our first meeting, I'll agree goals with you and plan sessions along with you. We'll agree together what will be covered each week. You remain in charge of the direction we take. I'll help you reflect on your results, help motivate you, but be flexible enough to change direction if you want. I'll constructively challenge and stretch you.


Everything said and written between us is kept strictly confidential and stored securely by me. This is essential to build trust between us. Paper files are kept securely in a cabinet with a key code and digital files are kept in an encrypted password-protected folder.

How long is each session?

One hour long.

How are sessions delivered?

Sessions can be delivered in-person at my home in Glasgow, by Skype (call, video or messaging), FaceTime or email. My working hours are Monday to Friday, 9:30a.m. - 1:30p.m. If you register for email coaching, I may work out-with these hours on weekdays, with a response time of 24 hours. There is typically just a few hours for a response to emails.


You'll be allocated a specific slot each week. If you work shifts and can't commit to a specific time-slot, you can book email coaching.

Personality clashes

Occasionally, it may be the case that we're not a good fit for one another. We both have a responsibility to discuss this, without judgement or aggression and to agree a way forward.

Who is the coach and what is her background?


"I went to Susanne for coaching as I felt I had lost my way a bit. I was experiencing anxiety and many of the bumps in the road that go hand and hand with it..low self-esteem, self doubt, stress, etc.
Susanne helped me to set reasonable and achievable life values and goals. This made my priorities become clearer and in turn my confidence, positivity and self-esteem grew.
I had been apprehensive about coaching at first, but I needn't have been. Susanne is a great listener, non-judgmental and I felt very at ease with her. 
I am so much happier now and would highly recommend coaching with Susanne."
