Self-confidence is the foundation for everything in life and our confidence (or lack of confidence) directly affects HOW we do everything in our life. Self-confidence is extremely important in every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it, because it is not taught to us. Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways; your behaviour, your body language, what you say and how you say it.
Being confident changes everything!
I know what it is like to be consumed by fear and frantic thoughts, that ultimately take over the mind and body. I used to be incredibly scared of speaking in front of people. (Hard to believe, if you have met me!) Now, I love giving presentations and speaking to large audiences. I find it very empowering.
I have learned and applied the skills and tools to be able to overcome my insecurities. Whether building relationships with other people, or standing up for yourself, voicing your opinion, talking to people of authority, or giving a presentation, a lack of self-confidence will most certainly affect the outcome in all of these situations.
- Do you want to know what it feels like to have complete and unconditional trust and love for yourself?
- Do you want to experience how amazing it feels to be unattached to the opinions and criticisms from other people?
I used to be consumed by the thoughts and opinions of others.
Doing so is very destructive and puts a choke hold on your self-confidence.
The other day I was in the mall, shopping for some jeans. I stopped into a store, found a pair I liked and went to the fitting room to try them on. I could not help but overhear a conversation between two women in the next room. One woman kept asking, “Do you like this on me? Should I get them? I like them, but what do you think?” The friend approved and told her that she should buy them. Then a couple minutes later the woman replied “Actually, I don’t think my boyfriend will like them, I better not get them.” My heart ached for that woman. She was giving her power away to the other people in her life and didn’t even realize it. In seeking approval from her friend and trying to please her boyfriend, she was allowing them to make decisions for her.
Have you had such conversations?
Neglect your self-confidence and you will limit your happiness and success.
And by default you will give others control over your life. YOU deserve to have control of YOUR life! The only way to live the life your dreams is to take charge and make yourself the priority. You must determine what you really want and have the courage to stand up and ensure that your voice is heard. You really do deserve to be respected and appreciated by the people in your life. You already know that deep down that your opinions DO matter.
I will help you discover and understand The 10 Components of Confidence.
The very first component is self-awareness. This crucial knowledge about yourself is imperative in building absolute confidence. You want to be able to trust yourself. If you do not know yourself, how can you trust yourself?
Let me ask you…
- Do you know all aspects of yourself?
- Have lost your zest for life?
- Are you searching for your life purpose?
- Does your voice go unheard?
- Do you shy away from social situations?
- Do you keep quiet for fear of not being accepted by others?
- Do you worry what others think of you?
- Do you take care of everyone else’s needs but your own?
As women, we typically put everyone else’s needs before our own.
Are you feeling….
Now is the time for you to make YOURSELF a priority and FALL IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF!
When was the last time you said: “I love myself.”
To develop absolute confidence you must develop that crucial trust, love and respect for yourself.
I can help you gain awareness and insights into yourself and provide powerful exercises and tools that will assist you in moving forward.
Now is the time for you to discover your INNER STRENGTH!

What is Coaching?
Coaching is a new popular professional service that has been in existence for about ten years. The philosophy of coaching is based on fundamental human principles of integrity, accountability, respect, and a belief in human potential.
Coaching is a results-focused, collaborative and unique partnership between client and coach, whereby together we focus on how change happens, rather than concentrating on how problems develop. We work on moving you away from your problems and forward to your goals and solutions. The client sets the primary goals and focus area for each one of the coaching sessions.
Coaching is different from a counselor or therapist, both of which help you with your past emotional and psychological problems. Coaching is NOT about how you got where you are now in your life by analyzing previous failures. Instead we focus on the present and helping you get from where you are now to a specific point you want to be in the future.
Coaching is also different from Consulting because it is not about giving advice or specializing in a certain field. Coaching is about addressing the whole life of the client. We get you thinking about what you really want and need in your life.

Are you ready to invest in yourself and change how you feel about yourself and your life?
A lot of the personal development work that is out there doesn’t work because they are teaching it from books NOT from experience. I live my life continuously pushing myself out of my comfort zone, facing my fears and constantly taking action.
I offer solutions that WILL work. I solve your problems because I have personally been through them and know what it takes to overcome them.
Don’t just take my word for it, check out what some of my clients have said…
“Thinking back to my less-glorious days, insecurities and constant need for approval dominated my social life in a sabotaging manner. Throughout the metamorphosis stages, I can see so many apparent improvements from within. For instance, I never even had the courage to eat lunch alone in the past; but now I have no problem attending all kinds of events solo! Instead of hiding in a corner, fiddling with the phone, or pretending to read as a way to avoid awkward social interaction, I am able to stride out confidently and initiate a conversation with strangers. Also, I am beginning to shed off the “doormat” and “yes girl” label through a nice touch of assertiveness along with an all-time respectful demeanor. This has not been an overnight accomplishment; and even with these positive changes, I still have the ultimate responsibility to continue the learning process. In essence, I acknowledge the fact that although seemingly trivial, confidence encompasses many significant aspects of everyday life. In order to improve what is on the outside, we should first discover and then learn to flourish our personal “core”. I shall never forget how ecstatic I felt when a friend, who has been a close part of my life both before and after the one-on-one coaching, chimed in: “Geez, Amanda, I can tell you’ve become exceptionally confident! You used to be so shy and timid… now look at you! You are Miss Popular!”
I feel liberated… Thanks Suzanne! You rock!!”
– Amanda J. ~ Vancouver
“Before I started working with Suzanne I was a very negative person who expected to fail at everything I attempted. I did not feel worthy of any praise. I avoided talking to strangers and did not talk a lot to anyone else either. I realized that people around me did not enjoy my company. I wanted self confidence so people would enjoy being around me. In a very short time after working with Suzanne she gave me the tools to change my life. Suzanne made me feel comfortable, she is easy to talk to, encouraging, spoke to me like a friend who cared what happened to me. She is a happy, inspirational person who changed my life. I now look forward to being with friends and also speaking to strangers I meet at parties, events and even in a store. I think most women could benefit from Suzanne’s confidence coaching.”
– Beverly S. ~ Surrey

“I love Suzanne! She helped me focus on the things I wanted in my life, instead of the things I didn’t want. She helped me set goals in all areas in my life and kept me accountable to them.

Then I met Suzanne and she coached me through the know-how and I succeeded in my own way. You have definitely had a wonderful impact on my life. You’ve given me the ability to find my strength and confidence and I’m in-touch with who I am now, thanks to you, I think it’s wonderful that you’re offering this service to women out there
Thanks Suzanne for helping me reconnect with my true self and empowering the strength within.”
– Farra I.
“I’m grateful for having met Suzanne!
In first coming to her for confidence coaching I was somewhat lost in myself, my values, my goals, all those vital things we need to be truly confident, happy and ultimately successful women. Through her dynamic, fun and engaging exercises, Suzanne helped me delve further into these things and I can say without reservation I have a much more clear vision of what these are. Suzanne is personable and knows her stuff!
– Danielle D.
“Many, many thanks to you Suzanne, for giving me back my strength and my courage.
As a 48 year old woman, I have gone through many challenges and heartaches.
I was tired of talking to therapists who didn’t empower me at all. You are goal oriented and solution focused. That is exactly what I needed. You have empowered me to change for the better, and I am so thankful.
I’m going to enjoy yet another wonderful day, life is great!
Thank you again,”
– Wendy T.
“Thank you Suzanne for bringing out the best in me. Since I have been working with you, you have impacted my life in so many positive ways. I know how to have confidence, how to gain confidence and how to keep my confidence. I am now much more motivated and determined to create positive change and be more confident in myself and my abilities.”
– Shelley W.
“I started a new career this past year and hired Suzanne as my coach to help me work on some of my professional and personal goals. It was so helpful to have Suzanne there to hold me accountable for doing the things that I needed to do to reach my goals, to talk to about any issues I was encountering that week, and to provide an objective second opinion when I needed it. Suzanne was very open and supportive. My sessions with her left me feeling hopeful and inspired. Thanks Suzanne!”
