Suzanne is passionate about developing the skills in young people to cope, thrive and flourish, both in day-to-day life and when faced with challenging times. She believes that prevention is better than cure, and offers a service to schools and communities which is solution-focused and strengths-based, rather than a sticking plaster to use when things aren’t working out. The Resilience Doughnut model matches her values and provides a holistic tool to use in educational and community settings, alongside her training and educational consultancy work. Suzanne is a Level 2 Licensed Trainer with The Resilience Doughnut, and offers workshops and programmes in the South West to support children and adolescents in developing their resilience.
