Sue recognises that the courage to be authentic, and believe in oneself, is the essential mindset a woman needs to lead a successful, rewarding and fulfilling career. Yet this can be a woman’s greatest challenge. On her own leadership journey, learning to embrace her own inner critic reaped the greatest rewards, enabling her to realise her own dreams.
“Driven to achieve, by my late 30s I had a proven track record of being a multi-skilled and successful business manager, consultant, educator, and psychotherapist. Yet despite my qualifications, breadth of accomplishments, and the external appearance of leading a rewarding career – I was consistently undermined by a harsh inner critic that sabotaged my self-confidence, self-worth and professional contentment. By this time I had had the privilege of counselling and training many other women….so I knew I was not alone. This ignited my curiosity and led me to study feminine psychology and its implications for women in their professional lives – discovering effective tools and strategies that women can implement to thrive in their careers”.
Sue is inspired to assist other women wanting to build their confidence, unleash their potential AND love what they do. Understanding the gifts and challenges of the female mindset, she has empowered 100’s of aspiring women to proactively develop their careers, transition to a new career, expand their leadership capacities or reach their business ambitions. Getting quickly to the heart of the matter, Sue’s gift is in assisting women to make the inner shifts necessary to achieve their outer aspirations.
