Susanne has helped us break down our plans into a practical roadmap and helped us question and stress test the assumptions behind them. In essence she has helped make our plans operational and weaponised us by guiding us towards a greater understanding of who we are as individuals and how we can work together collaboratively. We are in debited to her skills and generosity of spirit and look forward to working with her as we continue our journey with the charity, because we now see her as a valued member of our team.

Susanne is an amazing coach who is supportive yet challenging. She has the experience, aptitude and intuition to ask the right questions that make you stop, think and examine things form another perspective. For me, this has been enormously valuable as I have been going through a difficult period at work, which has left me feeling vulnerable and unsure of myself. Susanne’s structured yet flexible approach has been fantastic in making me identify what is really important to me, the values I hold dear and what I want out of life. This has inspired me to make the step change that I think I have needed to make for some time. Thank you so much Susanne for your guidance, coaching and support.

I was referred to Susanne by a trusted colleague at a difficult time in my professional career where I was full of uncertainty and doubt about my choices and path forward. Susanne helped me to find my true purpose and my values through practical and eye-opening exercises and guidance. Through the lens of these values I was able to determine my path and approach my work and choices with a renewed sense of rigour and purpose. I would 100% recommend Susanne as an executive coach, she is focused on outcomes and value, follows up actions and keeps detailed notes on our interactions.

I have had an extraordinary and life changing experience from my executive coaching with Susanne. Her excellent knowledge has helped me personally as well as professionally; I have learned to take charge of my feelings and emotions and not let outside actions affect myself. Identifying the core values of my professional life helped me to focus on the next move in my career. Her coaching sessions have genuinely changed my mindset and I am able to be truly happy and fulfil my dreams - and for that I couldn't thank Susanne enough.

I honestly couldn’t thank Susanne, my Executive and Business Coach, enough! Her coaching and positive presence is really a life changing experience. I had been feeling quite lost for some time and Susanne has not only shown me how to love and accept myself for the strong woman I am but she has continuously motivated me to be a loving mother as well as a successful business owner. Susanne’s genuine love of helping others is by far one of the best things I have done for my personal and professional growth.

I got to know Susanne as an inspirational and determined woman who is … [committed] … to make a difference in someone’s life. Susanne helped me during a vulnerable time when I was trying to change my career and at the same time settling into a new country while being in early motherhood. Her professional, yet kind […] approach of guidance impressed me and I received so much more out of her sessions than I imagined. Susanne is unique in her approach to combine her genuine personality with her vast experiences in areas of work life, coaching and spirituality, which gives you not just a ‘regular’ coaching, but a holistic development experience!

When I began my journey with Susanne I was convinced there was something wrong with me. And this belief was affecting all of my relationships, my work and my health. I had never been more unhappy, unhealthy and angry! With Susanne’s incredible kindness and insightful guidance she has showed me that I was standing in my own way but I did not need fixing. This discovery has propelled all aspects of my life in a positive direction, and I am eternally grateful to Susanne for this. She has given me the greatest gift – tools and techniques to face all of life’s moments with calm and confidence. I am no longer reactive but proactively setting and achieving so many of my personal and professional goals. Susanne is accomplished, efficient, caring and conscientious in achieving the best outcome for you. I encourage everyone to get in touch with Susanne – she will guide you to be and continue being the best and most authentic version of yourself, which in turn creates a meaningful and positive experience out of each and every day.

For over three decades I have limited my life having certain beliefs. Some I already knew, others I became aware of through being coached by Susanne. Even when we are aware of the reasons we do things the way we do, we may not necessarily know how to change it. This is where Susanne coaching me was such an immense advantage. She created an environment of love and trust in our sessions that enabled me to take off my armour and be vulnerable. Susanne was able to help me bring about a new awareness of what meaning I gave certain events in my life. Meanings that held me back, kept me playing small and did not serve, support, nurture and challenge me. Through the coaching sessions with Susanne I was able to adopt new beliefs and I know the strength in those beliefs is only going to grow as I continue to grow. If you have any block in your life, a problem you can’t get past on your own or an area you are good at but want to become great – I would recommend you get in touch with Susanne and get some coaching. You will never look back. The things you can learn about yourself through her processes are just fantastic! Thank you so very much Susanne. Your coaching has helped me so much and was such a gift in my life.

I am happy to have thought specifically about my work values with Susanne. I have applied the tool to my job decision. This was a very helpful process and I am now sure which job offer I will accept. Having such a framework made me more aware of the decision process, applying both aspects – the logical scoring and the basic gut feeling. Such a great relief, thank you Susanne!

I have been extremely fortunate to have Susanne coach me through my personal and business issues for the last few months. Susanne continuously maintains a very professional yet personal connection and is dedicated to understanding my situation every single time. Regardless of whether they are personal or business in nature, she is able to bring powerful self-awareness to them. She then guides the process of overcoming them and moving forward through tools, techniques and insights. Susanne has helped me feel empowered, confident, improve my personal and professional relationships and grow my business. From brainstorming very specific business goals to coaching very personal issues, Susanne helps me get past obstacles and self-limiting beliefs that I have created within. Because of her, I have been able to get out of my own way and achieve the successes I have always wanted to achieve. I am grateful to Susanne for her guidance and unwavering support. I have every confidence that her passion, dedication and talent would be an asset for anyone fortunate enough to engage her.

I have had the privilege of having Susanne in my life as my coach; she is smart, knowledgeable and experienced. She brought clarity to my busy mind and life. Her structured coaching style has made things simple for me and helped me to believe in myself deep inside. With her subtle suggestions and recommendations she guided me in one of the most difficult periods of my life. For that I am forever grateful. What I admire in Susanne however, is the alignment of her values, life style and actions and her constant effort for learning. I recommend Susanne’s coaching to those individuals that are thinking to have a coach to improve their lives.

This week we partnered once again with the highly insightful Susanne Rauer for the workshop ‘Speaking up with Confidence and Clarity’. The online workshop was greatly received and saw many attendees participating and sharing their personal barriers around this topic. Susanne always delivers an engaging and professional presentation which sparks interaction and self-reflection. Attendees felt heard and left the session with practical and actionable advice and tools that they could use in their own lives straight away. We will definitely partner again with Susanne for future workshops knowing that our audience will always come away feeling empowered to take positive steps towards a thriving life – Huge Thanks from the Thrivhers team (https://www.thrivhers.com)

In the beginning of this year (2014), I was a bit lost and frustrated because of some work related issues. My energy level at work was low. I was unhappy and felt purposeless. I feel so fortunate that I decide to meet up with Susanne. I had known Susanne for a few years at that time. She is open, positive and honest. I always feel like I can talk to her and seek advice from her even before she became my coach. She listened, she helped me to see clearly what I need to focus on, and gave me very practical ideas to overcome that period of challenging time. I love her coaching style, which is to empower myself to discover the answer and improve myself continuously. Every time, when I encounter a new challenge, I think about the advice Susanne gave me, and it always helps me to think clearly and move forward. I can’t express more how valuable this coaching experience is to me. It is not just a short term trouble shooting, I am really getting a long term benefit from it.

I have been working with Susanne for almost 12 months now and have achieved fantastic results both personally and professionally. Susanne has also worked extensively with my team to help uncover ways to increase efficiencies and team dynamics. With equally good outcomes. Having tried a number of methods and approaches to shift my life for the better (counselling/online course/ self-help books etc.) I have no hesitation in saying that Susanne has been able to help me achieve the real results I have been seeking. Her conscious leadership approach is dynamic, and straight to the point and helps me see things from a perspective that enables me to put in action change that I would not have been comfortable with previously. If this sounds like the change you are seeking as well - I highly recommend you get started with her.

I am a big believer in things happen for a reason. Being introduced to Susanne at a point in time where I was at crossroads with my career was exactly what I needed! I found Susanne to be authentic, knowledgeable, encouraging and non-judgmental and as a result I felt an instant connection and have enjoyed working with her to discover my primary aim in life. Her holistic approach has helped me discover my personal and professional goals that matter most to me and my family. I am grateful to Susanne for her guidance, support and would highly recommend working with Susanne if you are ready to grow.

The experience has been truly life changing for me. At a difficult time in my life, and also a moment of great opportunity, Susanne’s helped to find that which motivates and drives me forward. That motivation, along with her genuine involvement in the day to day smaller challenges has got me to a whole new level, which resulted in couple of internal job offers within a few months after starting the executive coaching with Susanne. It’s taught me another way to think and problem solve which is invaluable. I can carry that forward with me – experience and knowledge otherwise very hard to come by. That motivation is also about building your own dream and vision for the future and mapping out the path towards it. Working through the step by step of how to get there is the other aspect of the work we did. It’s a little personal reference book now. Without it, it may seem like just a dream but now it feels like I can make it a reality.

I had been standing at the edge of the next stage of life for some time, unsure if I could or would take the next step. Through a beautiful process filled with genuine interest, care and insightful observation. Susanne used her vast knowledge and skill to help me let go of the thoughts and decisions that had been holding me back. Susanne helped me realign my values to build a compelling future that I am so excited to work towards. If you are looking for someone to help you make that next step in business or life I don’t know a better coach. Thanks again Susanne.

Life is not a project with a start and an end, it is a journey so they say. I like the idea of knowing where I am and where I would like to go next. Looking back at myself, three years ago, I didn’t like where I was. Under the guidance of Susanne, I was able to turn things around in two aspects of my life. In simple terms, my job and love life sucked. I have now tripled my income and am in a serious relationship with a handsome gentleman. The whole concept of coaching was new to me, but there was one aspect that I liked: a coach unlocks potential. Susanne has a very structured method of working. Following her guidance (her kind and firm words) has been great for me to find out where my blind spots are. What can be learned in the process of being coached is not step by step perception of how to treat a particular problem. It is a model to solve any problem. If you are someone who is interested in helping yourself, I highly recommend working with Susanne.

I found Susanne to have an extraordinary way of helping me towards making progress in my new business by way of clarifying goals, identifying obstacles and insecurities and looking at strengths and successes that have all gone towards where I am today. A loving, practical, no nonsense approach, I am no longer able to side step issues now I have taken steps towards and continue to be on my true path. I will carry Susanne’s support, helpful guidelines and ideas with me as I move forward. The answers are within me. I am grateful for all her wisdom and guidance. Thank you.

I knew it was time for me to make decisions about my reality – either really face myself and connect with my truth, or continue feeling uninspired, unfulfilled and unhappy. I approached Susanne after she was recommended to me by a friend. Susanne’s generous and nurturing spirit immediately made me feel open, connected and safe. Susanne facilitates such an encouraging and non-judgemental environment that the coaching process is positive and uplifting, even when exploring some sad or challenging areas. Through the coaching sessions with Susanne I am discovering things about myself, challenging false beliefs that have held me back, and continuously growing and moving forward. Susanne is teaching me how to challenge my old beliefs and patterns that no longer serve me, and replace them with new ones that align with who I am and what I want to achieve in my life. Susanne has a kind but practical approach, which is the perfect combination for me. As I continue my coaching sessions with Susanne I feel shifts occurring in all areas of my life. I find more laughter and love in my life. I find it easier to embrace and enjoy the everyday little things. I find myself making decisions and discoveries that are quite unexpected! I really thank Susanne for her kindness, encouragement, and support. I feel very privileged to be on this journey with her, and I would highly recommend her services for anyone wanting to start their own journey of self-discovery and improvement.

Quick update: the ideas you provided last year for my performance review helped and as a result I got the full bonus allocation. Have also handed over my people responsibilities and promoted someone in the team. Just waiting to sort a few other things out and then the new business opportunity awaits.
