‘Dancing with the Mask: learning to love and be loved’ tracks how I re-created every aspect of my life with the help and support of Alan, the man who became my life coach. He showed me that there was another way to live, an experience so profound I feel compelled to share it as widely as possible.

COMMENTS ABOUT MY BOOK
“Sue’s book really has made me stop and think so many times whilst reading it. Recognising personality traits within me and marvelling at how she has come through the dark, sad times in her life to be the person she is today. Her candid story telling of her life and the detailed analysis of it, will help so many people be able to reflect on their own situations. And learn from them.”
“It is rare to read a book and feel you have been journeying more than turning the pages. “Dancing with the Mask” is such a journey. The author takes the reader through the darkest corners of her heart and connects the reader with her memories in a way where the distance between reader and author fades away to a point where the reader experiences the book as their own journey. An increadible read which makes us ask questions and find answers to our own journeys, however different they may be. The specifics become less important and one is left with this powerful sense of growth and self-discovery. I was left thinking of it as a long train journey: Sue provided the ticket to the train and the journey became mine. Poignant, straight from the heart and immensely powerful.”
“I enjoyed the book very much. I think it is a brave and honest account of a life which could not have been easy; it is encouraging to readers to know that nothing is unsurmountable. Buy it, read it, and see for yourself the changes you too can make.”
“An honest and frank account of Sue’s life and the incredible journey she took to the wonderful place she is today.”
“Whilst reading Sue’s experiences I could often relate to many of the behaviours she exhibited as a way of coping and hiding behind the mask.”
“Having met Sue in person, I can only say how genuinely warm and positive she is as an individual.
Sue’s book is a truly inspiring read.”
“I was moved and enthralled by the book. I felt empowered to look at certain aspects of my own behaviour and relationships. I cried and I laughed, and found myself thinking about what I had read for days afterwards.”
“There was so much of myself that I recognised. It was as if someone had switched the light on and sighed “finally you see what you have been doing and it’s now time to stop”
“The book is absolutely fantastic although hard to read at times when I was witnessing the pain you went through. It is challenging because it is so open and honest.”
“This book is extremely generous – open, honest and filled with treasures, signposts and delight. It touched my heart and inspired me. It shows what is possible and it shows how change can come about even in the most difficult situations.”
‘The True Power of Water’, Dr Masaru Emoto
Our bodies are composed of 75% water. Dr. Masaru Emoto shows through his stunning pictures how we can heal ourselves and the water that makes up this planet. It caused me to realise that the quality of our inner dialogue is even more important to our health and wellbeing than I imagined.
‘How Full is Your Bucket’, Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton, PhD
I loved this book! In a compelling way Tom and Don show how, through each encounter, however brief, we have the power to make people feel good about themselves or we can leave them feeling resentful and discouraged. We have the power to make a huge difference when we consciously apply the principles described in this book.
‘A Stroke of Insight’, Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD
This is a truly inspirational book on so many levels. Jill, a brain scientist, experienced a stroke on the left side of her brain and watched her own mind deteriorate in a few hours. One of her many insights she shared as she embarked on her journey to the full recovery of her left brain was that we are hardwired towards a critical inner dialogue and that we therefore need to consciously choose the kinds of thoughts that make us feel good about ourselves.
‘Time to Think’, Nancy Kline
Nancy describes persuasively how the quality of our listening and the extent to which we pay genuine attention to each other makes a huge difference not only to how people feel about themselves but also in the quality of their thinking because they are given the time to hear what comes out of their own mouth and refine and refine until it feels right. This helps build and nurture strong business and personal relationships and opens us up to a whole new world of possibilities.
