Hello, I'm Susan!
Let me introduce myself.
I have been a teacher all my working life, starting my career in the primary sector, before moving to the role of childcare and education college lecturer.
For the last few years I have worked within the Organisational Development and Human Resources department, supporting staff to gain teaching and assessor qualifications. It is an absolute pleasure to observe a staff member with their class and then take part in a professional discussion, so the individual can reassured of the approaches they are doing well, and can be motivated to add to their 'teacher's toolkit'.
More recently I have become an internal coach with the College where I support staff across the academic faculties and professional services so they can make desired changes in their lives. I find they can move forward with clarity and optimism after engaging in coaching. Facilitating other people's professional and personal growth is such a satisfying process.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation, the British Psychological Society and am fully registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland.
My personal journey has led me to become a Reiki Master and give of my own time to share reiki treatments with college colleagues as part of the college wellbeing initiative.
I am also a Certified Happiness Facilitator. This training allows me to adopt positive psychology approaches to empower people to improve their own wellbeing.
I notice that people often say I am calm, patient, inspiring, supportive, an empathetic listener, positive, friendly and genuine.
In my spare time, I love visiting art galleries, walking my two dogs and being out in nature.
We can arrange a chemistry call to find out if we are well-matched for coaching.
I am pleased to offer the first coaching session absolutely free.
Should you wish to book additional sessions, my cost is £50 per session.
I look forward to working with you!
Working as an internal coach within a college, I have had the opportunity to work with a range of people from diverse backgrounds, ages and job roles. This includes lecturers, assessors, managers and professional services staff ranging from administration support to student guidance to estates. I also coach people outwith my college from a range of different occupational fields, backgrounds and cultures.
The variety of issues I have coached around include:
dealing with difficult work relationships
achieving more joy in life
making better diet choices
establishing positive habits
becoming positive about changes at work
making decision to move on from current job
