Excerpt from The Art of Coming Home
It should be so easy to feel at home in ourselves shouldn’t it? It seems like something that would be as natural and inevitable as breathing or falling off a bike while learning to ride. Yet for so many of us this is a goal we have to work towards and a huge part of our life journey. It requires not only that we become self-aware, but that we actually like and love the person we find ourselves to be.
The title for this book stems from a long-held belief of mine; that although pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone to move beyond our old limitations can feel scary and unfamiliar, if it is authentic to us then through growing and changing we are actually coming home to ourselves. And just like a home, our centre should be somewhere that we feel safe, loved, understood and accepted for who we are. So although the journey may be tough at times, striving too hard and being self-critical will not get us there. Our way home is paved with self-kindness, patience and a sense of our intrinsic worth. And above all it is guided by our own inner most truth and self…

This is what some of my clients have said about me:
“Her treatment is quite special: surprisingly uplifting and thought-provoking. And she made me laugh. Highly recommended.” – Kerry Shale
“I first met Suzanne when my body was stressed, stiff and knotted, and I visited her for deep tissue (and walking!) massage. These sessions gradually developed into something far greater….and with Suzanne’s gentle prodding and guidance we peeled back the layers of the proverbial onion. I got to realise the “truths” that i had believed and had been holding on to so dearly, can simply be let go of. Letting go brings lightness, and with that lightness comes clarity and strength – all from within. Yes, after years of searching and longing for “the answer” from outside sources – it was within me all along!
I have come so far since first meeting Suzanne, and my journey continues. I don’t think there is ever a “destination” to get to, but what I know is I am constantly looking back, with a smile on my face, at how far I keep coming….
Stay curious, and let Suzanne guide you gently through your own journey. Believe me, you will only ever look back to smile at the journey you too have made xx.” – Susan M, London
Moving Stretch: Work Your Fascia to Free Your Body
I have also written a really easy-to-use book on Moving Stretch, my version of resistance stretching (and my other job). I have helped lots and lots of people move better, have great posture and even more energy and improved performance. But the nice thing about Moving Stretch is that it isn’t just for athletes – it’s for anyone with a body. If you do have a physical issue right now then I recommend you consult your doctor or physio first, but if they say it’s OK – get stretching! Even if movement, exercise or stretching are not normally your thing (or especially if they aren’t) I highly recommend you give this a go. I will never forget the first time I started working on my body in this way; and you can get great results from as little as 20 minutes a day! Below are the UK, US and German versions, but you should be able to find it in your country via amazon or other booksellers also. Check out the site for more information on this great technique.
This is what some reviewers thought about the book:
“This is the best book of its kind I have read. The exercises are easy to follow and do. I do them while out walking the dogs in the forest.Only been doing the stretches for a week, but I already feel more flexible and strong” – Rita F.
“I am new to stretching, but already feeling the benefits of a more flexible body after just a few days of exercises. The ideas is to stretch the fascia, the connective tissue which holds our muscles in place and allows our bones to move, For anyone who is interested in yoga or exercise or plays sport, this may be something they would enjoy and benefit from learning about. The body’s fascia contains fluid and nerves, and strengthening and stretching the fascia holds the promise of creating a body which moves more effectively and elegantly.
The book is excellent value, large and very well illustrated with colour photographs throughout of people performing a wide variety of stretching exercises. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for ways to help their body feel more youthful and avoid or treat aches and pains.” – JB
And this is what some of my clients have said:
“I have been seeing Suzanne for stretching therapy for 2 years now and highly recommend it. I used to have headaches every morning but now can’t remember the last time I woke up with one. I wish I could see her more often but do self stretching at home, although not as often as I should. It really is life changing in all aspects.” – Suzanne K.
“Best thing I have done for my body! Changed how I think about stretching and improving my body functioning and performance.” -Brad L.
“Suzanne is intuitive and fun and her stretching therapy allowed my body to express it’s energy and release . Great stuff” – Carmel M.
