What people say about Sue
Sue is a beacon of a woman, who showed me the way, the rocks in the way and how to stand on the shoreline of my own life. Working with Sue helped me to see that stories are like rivers running towards an infinite heaving sea of stories upon a deep ocean of togetherness. My experiences are not all that personal after all, but actually universal to us all and through storytelling I can share the spirit of compassion, forgiveness and understanding with others.
If you are wishing to develop your original voice as a storyteller and become more authentic, expressive, courageous and grateful as a human being and if you like play, depth, clear teaching and a takeaway basket full of skills, then find Sue – you will be so thankful that you did.”
