Susie Donaldson

Susie is Coaching Supervisor at Dream on and aims  to offer Coaches a strong and professional support system, enabling them to provide the best possible service and experience for their Coachees.  We at Dream on, and Susie, believe that the coaches own supervision, training and therapy are an essential part of their ability to help and develop their clients.

Susie originally qualified as a Dietitian, specialising in supporting patients with chronic life-limiting conditions.  She managed the Suffolk wide Nutrition and Dietetic Service before leaving the NHS to raise her two boys and pursue a new career as a counsellor. Susie has been the Director of Inspire Counselling and Training, in Ipswich, for almost 12 years where she manages the day to day and strategic operation of this growing charity.   She specialises in counselling couples, is  a counselling supervisor and runs a small private practice from home.

Susie is  also the Director of Training Standards for Barnabas Counselling Training, a national counselling training organisation.  She is an experienced trainer and is passionate about educating and equipping those at different stages of their counselling career.  Susie loves to develop new courses, creating relevant and innovative programmes which inspire others.

Outside of work Susie is usually found in the kitchen where she loves to experiment with food and flavours.  Family is incredibly important to Susie and she loves to spend time with her husband, boys, step-daughters and friends.  When time allows they enjoy  escaping home to Scotland where family, mountains and beaches provide a welcome retreat for them and their gorgeous Goldendoodle Bella.
