What clients say...
“I was overweight, unfit, running on adrenaline fumes and grieving for the losses in my life and unsure of what to do next. I think the phrase is that I was “sick and tired of feeling sick and tired”. I had heard and read about functional medicine, and as a nurse myself, it resonated with me. I didn’t want more medication to treat normal human responses. I was put in touch with Suzy by a local functional medicine doctor who suggested she’d be able to help me make lifestyle changes.
Like many other women, for far too long my life has been led by other people’s needs. I had forgotten that, unless the carer looks after herself, then those she cares for will lose out. The biggest revelation to me is that it’s OK to think about myself and I really don’t have to worry about other people all the time.
Formal before and after questionnaires show clear evidence that my health and wellbeing are improving. I have lost five inches from my waist and I can recognise how much better I feel when I eat well. Suzy has been a calm, cheerful influence in my life. I feel supported. She doesn’t get fazed if I cry and to someone grieving a loss, that has been very comforting.
I would recommend Suzy and her practice to anyone who is thinking of making changes in their life. You do have the answers inside of you: Suzy will help to calm that inner turmoil and work with you to understand that self-knowledge and help you to find a path that suits you.
My journey so far has been worth every penny and I consider it to be an investment in my wellbeing for the future.”
“Suzy has really transformed my way of thinking. She has made me realise the importance of self-worth and positive thinking. I used to be addicted to biscuits and sweets and have had none of these in two months. I now enjoy berries, which can be just as tasty and sweet, and have introduced lots of greens into my diet and feel a lot better for this. Suzy has taught me to establish boundaries and that saying no to people is acceptable. I have blossomed in confidence as a result. Suzy is an incredible life coach and counsellor. I cannot recommend her enough. She is truly inspirational.”
“Initially, I was a bit sceptical about health coaching. I was a life-long chocolate biscuit addict and was convinced that nothing would persuade me to give them up. But I was really suffering from bloating and indigestion and also had massive energy slumps, especially at work, so I gave it a try. I can honestly say that Suzy has changed my life. Not only has my digestion been transformed (no bloating and I no longer have cravings for sugar and caffeine) but my tummy is flatter, my clothes fit better and I’ve lost 9 lbs without depriving myself at all. I no longer have energy slumps and can run my business with more focus and energy. I feel like a different person: I’m sleeping better at night and generally feeling calmer and more positive. As a bonus, I’m getting compliments about how much fresher, clearer and younger my skin looks. Thanks to Suzy’s help, I feel the best I’ve ever done in my life.”
“Suzy’s health coaching programme was nothing less than a lifeline for me. Both my parents suffer from a chronic disease and, seeing the effects of that first-hand, I desperately wanted to avoid going down the same route. With all my heart, I want to stay well and healthy to be there for my kids. But I was locked in unhealthy habits and just didn’t know how to break out of them. Suzy made me want to be healthy, as opposed to having to be healthy. With her help, I’ve completely kicked my sugar habit and stopped drinking my daily Diet Coke. I know there are absolutely no guarantees when it comes to health, but I can’t put into words how much better I feel knowing that I’ve made changes to my lifestyle that reduce the risk of chronic disease. I now feel empowered to look after my own health and the health of my family for good – and I think that’s one of the most important things I can ever do in life.”
“I’d tried a meal replacement diet to lose my middle-aged spread but, after eight months on it, I just wasn’t shifting any weight. In addition, I had constant cravings for sugar which would have me hunting for chocolate each evening. I also suffered from long-standing digestion problems which often left me feeling bloated and uncomfortable – and my consultant had put me on long-term medication to treat what he termed a genetic bowel condition. Suzy helped me to change my diet and health for good. With her help, I lost my belly (and two stone). Even better, I no longer crave sugar and I’m off all my medication! Whereas I used to grab a sandwich at work and then suffer the effects, Suzy has shown me how to assemble tasty, filling and nutritious meals that keep my energy up without me using chocolate as a crutch to get through the day. My blood sugar is now stable and I feel lighter and fitter than I have for two decades!”
“Suzy has helped me enormously over the last few months. She’s guided me across several areas of my life, improving my general wellness and how I feel about myself through diet, stress reduction and exercise. I’ve noted a vast improvement in my sleep depth and length and I now wake up refreshed. I’ve transformed my diet and ditched all the junk I used to crave that had led to me carrying excess weight. She’s helped me get rid of my brain fog so I can think clearly – I’m now finding both everyday and work decisions easier and less stressful.
“Suzy is particularly helpful, informed and supportive as a person. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to be more content in life and to be a better human being.”
“I joined Suzy’s programme as I knew I wasn’t feeling (or looking) the best I could be. I wanted to refocus on wellness, abolish the diet treadmill and gain knowledge on how to look after myself. Suzy is someone who inspires with her passion for wellness and she empowered me to put her advice into practice and make healthy habits a part of my everyday life. Not only have I stopped feeling hungry but I now sleep better, my skin is glowing, I’ve got improved concentration and I’m less stressed. In short, I feel well.”
“Being coached by Suzy gave me such a feeling of liberation. In the past, I’ve been on so many restrictive diets and it was just a breath of fresh air not to be dictated to. What you get from Suzy is a very healthy, ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ approach to eating. Now, if I happen to eat something that previously I would have felt guilty about, I’m just so much more relaxed about it. However far away you are from healthy living, Suzy makes it completely attainable, so that you have belief and confidence in yourself. She encourages you to take baby steps and holds your hand along the way.”
“I was introduced to Suzy at a time when I felt at my lowest. She helped me to address and resolve many anxiety issues, and to overcome a bout of severe depression. She supported me to become more mindful in everything I do and to enjoy a purposeful and healthier life once again. I’m now not only more confident around home cooking but have drastically reduced the amount of chocolate I eat! I feel much less anxious, a lot happier and more positive about the future.
“Suzy is incredibly kind, patient and warm and is passionate about helping people lead happier, healthier lives. Thank you Suzy!”
“I am so grateful for Suzy’s support and can’t thank her enough! She helped me overcome a fear of water that I had for 15 years and which seemed so daunting to me. With the help of her doing EFT (tapping) with me, I no longer have those fears and can now enjoy swimming, even if I am alone in the pool! Suzy, you’re a star.”
“Suzy gives an illuminating insight into the truth behind the health headlines in a forgiving environment and in an accessible way. She offers a very practical approach to changing your whole lifestyle – say goodbye to faddy diets and hello to a wholesome new you!”
“I have tried so many different diets and health trends but none worked for me. When I heard about Suzy’s more holistic approach, I was intrigued and a little sceptical. But now I am a graduate of her coaching, I feel much better equipped to keep myself healthy and happier. Suzy’s lovely, positive, gentle sessions have given me a new self-awareness and the tools to identify triggers and deal with them when life throws things at you, at work or at home.”
What companies say...
“Everyone loved the course – best course we have done. It is such a simple message but can have such a massive impact at work and at home. It is simply life-changing.”
“In her warm, fun and interactive workshop, Suzy taught us practical and very easy to implement ways to mitigate everyday stressors and how to eat to optimise energy throughout the day. We were delighted to see an immediate, marked increase not only in individuals’ energy levels and focus but an overwhelming boost in positivity and overall morale. Our staff left inspired, excited and motivated to make permanent lifestyle changes which will not only enhance their health but also their productivity going forward.”
“The feedback we had from our team here was very positive indeed. Suzy managed to bust some long held food myths and steer the group towards some better food options without preaching or lecturing. The conversational style of the workshop allowed people to get involved, open up about their concerns and to voice their questions.”
“We were looking for ways to help our hardworking staff to look after themselves better so that they could feel more able to cope in work and have more energy. Suzy’s workshop empowered them to make bite-sized, practical, easy changes that dramatically increase focus and energy – all conveyed in a relaxed, informal environment where everyone was encouraged to share their own challenges. Our staff gained insights into how their daily habits impact on stress levels and came away inspired to make small changes to improve how they feel and perform on a day to day basis.”
“I attended a “bite-sized” Peppermint Wellness session on keeping energy levels up at work and I would recommend it to any busy professional. Reflecting on my daily habits and how they are affecting my performance was incredibly therapeutic. I’m fully aware of where I’m going wrong, yet I’ve not done anything about it for years! The session with Suzy has motivated me to stop making excuses and to think about my wellness. I eat healthily, drink lots of water and exercise, however I cannot remember the last time I stepped away from my laptop and ate my lunch without rushing. My ‘take home message’ was how important it is to eat mindfully. This is something I’ve been able to implement immediately and whilst it’s been less than a week, I can already feel a difference.”
What audiences say...
“Just want to say that a few changes have made a big difference to me so far. I have lost weight and feel fitter than I have done in years, with plenty of energy at work to push through the shifts we do!”
“Thank you so much for last week, it really was amazing. The way you speak and how passionate you are about the subject rubs off on people. Everyone I have spoken to says the same thing.”
“Since listening to you give a seminar, I got Mark Hyman’s book and have now been following the programme for one month. In that time I have lost 8kg (which is 10% of my previous body weight), lost 9cm off my waistline and, most importantly, my sugar intake is way down. I feel great and never feel hungry at all. So this REALLY works. Thanks so much, Suzy, for getting me onto the correct path.”
“I found the workshop very interesting and challenging and will make every effort to make some changes to my own eating habits. Your determination and focus on passing on your knowledge to others was quite inspiring.”
“Your session struck such a chord with me that I had to hold back tears at times. Your passion came across so strongly, and for me it was just one light bulb after another going off. I just kept thinking: ‘that’s why I do that, that’s why I do this…that’s me!’ What you were saying was just proven by how my life was. I didn’t need to go and look at another article or wiki to see the facts because they were right there in front of me.
“After two days of cutting out fizzy diet drinks and trying to have a better breakfast, I’m already feeling the changes in my mood. I did an unintentional experiment yesterday – I caved and ate some junk I still had in the cupboard. I’d felt great and motivated when I started the day with some eggs, bacon and tomatoes and as soon as I put the junk in my body I become lazy and unmotivated. The proof is right there in the pudding!
“Thank you so much Suzy for all your encouragement – you’ve just opened my eyes so much. I can’t thank you enough 🙂
“I’m going to make small change by small change and determined to finally be healthy and happy again.”
“Hearing Suzy talk about healthy living has inspired me to finally take action to improve my diet. I had suffered from an eating disorder for seven years in my 20s and, even though I have largely put that behind me, I’m very aware that my diet at times has been inconsistent. However I have always pushed it to the back of my mind telling myself that it is not too bad.
Listening to Suzy was the wake-up call I needed (after 30 years!). I’ve now cut out artificial sweeteners and my daily fix of Diet Coke which has been hard, but I have stuck at it. It is just a small start, but I feel so much better now that I have, after all these years, begun to take steps to improve my lifestyle, and that’s all thanks to Suzy.
Thank you Suzy. You have inspired me!!”
“Suzy was a guest speaker at one of my ParentPreneur events. She absolutely blew us away with her compassion, honesty and expertise on health and wellness. As parents, we try our best to give our children a healthy balance of food. Suzy gave us some realistic ideas on how making small changes can really have a big impact. Her passion and knowledge are absolutely amazing and I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs to refocus and make some lifelong changes. She will support you for 6 months and it will change the rest of your life!”
“Very thought-provoking and no bullshit.”
“You are what you eat! A good wake-up call – especially for my kids. What price do you put on your life?”
“If you’re looking to improve not only your diet but your health and wellbeing then I couldn’t recommend Suzy enough. She delivered a wonderful talk on mindful eating at my Pilates studio which changed the way I looked at diet as a subject. She really helps you see the bigger picture so you’re not only conscious of short term benefits but the long term rewards of good health through to old age. She gives you so much motivation and really simplified it for us. I left feeling quite confident that, with a little thought, I could improve much more than my immediate health. If I can sum up her talk in three words it would be inspirational, motivational and achievable.”
“Suzy gave a brilliant talk on sugar at The Garden and the entire audience found her words incredibly inspirational, engaging and thought-provoking. There were loads of ‘light-bulb’ moments for everyone there – Suzy has a real gift for making people see things from a fresh perspective and giving them the impetus and encouragement to change. Her talk really was “food for thought”.”
“Suzy is a consummate professional who is deeply passionate about her subject. She is also a highly skilled communicator who can disseminate information in an engaging and affable way. I found her presentation absorbing, educational and thoroughly enjoyable.”
“Made me think…a lot! Fabulous, informative evening.”
“Absolutely inspired. I’m having the best ever week without sugar and found your workshop brilliant.”
“Suzy is a fountain of knowledge on healthy eating. l left her talk on sugar’s impact on our bodies with new knowledge that I can adapt to my everyday living.”
“Thank you so much for a great workshop. Was very informative and fun!”
“Thank you for a very inspiring night – it has given me the kick-start I needed. I learned so much while having a laugh as well.”
“A really great session. The perfect balance of information, reflection and humour!”
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the workshop. I learned so much and really enjoyed it. Thanks again for the inspiration.”
“Here l am, having eaten low fat foods most of my adult life, leaving me with elevated cholesterol, osteopenia and awaiting hip surgery. This sensible advice about fat will be followed, it’s the missing link – thank you so much. I’m a 64-year-old female changing the habits of a lifetime.
You have a fine way of getting details to register and this has provided me with the final piece of the jigsaw – thank you for ‘telling it as it is’. x”
“I’d like to thank you for last Thursday – it was a real eye opener. I’m totally made up with all the help and information you have supplied me with – I’m excited about food for the first time in ages! 🙂 “
“Suzy Glaskie’s advice has helped me get my mental energy back. Brain fog has gone only one day after changing. Remarkable.”
“A very enlightening event. I have a five point plan to improve my lifestyle now and will be implementing it over the next month or so. Exciting times!”
What experts say...
“Simply fab!! With her sunny attitude and honesty, Suzy had my audiences enthralled. The first was a professional audience of doctors, nurses and health trainers. The second was a diverse group of 25 patients. They were immediately set thinking about their personal goals and how to get there. Suzy certainly knows how to connect.”
“I was very interested to hear Suzy Glaskie speak to our doctors’ meeting last night. She has a wonderful understanding of positive psychology, and used it to create a really uplifting talk on how she uses group work to facilitate improved nutrition and better health for her clients. Highly recommended, well done!”
