I’ve spent my career trying to help others and improve the work of those who do this for a living.
I’m passionate about coaching and am often blown away by the impact this can have. Researching and achieving a PhD in coaching has made me a better coach and inspired me to make coaching available to anyone and everyone. Everyone means parents, young people, teenagers as well as those in leadership or corporate roles – anyone who would like help to make changes in their life and work.
I’ve been a registered social worker for 25 years. Since 2006 I’ve been facilitating the practice and continuing professional development of social workers and students by delivering training, workshops and lectures.
The training I deliver now is based on my original doctoral research into the benefits of using coaching within social work, combined with foundation coaching principles and mindfulness-based coaching approaches. If you’re interested in my research and how I think coaching can change lives you can access my latest published journal article here: https://radar.brookes.ac.uk/radar/items/7e945a10-f0f5-4c99-9e09-d80f6eb8c986/1/

If you’re interested in finding out more about me, get in touch and I’ll tell you my full story.
In October 2021 I was honoured to receive Harvard’s Institute of Coaching's first-ever award for ‘Coaching for the Social Good’ in the name of social activist Ellen Shub. I hope to use it to bring the benefits of coaching to those experiencing a lack of social power and to amplify the social impact of coaching.
Suzanne aka "The Coach Doctor" is warm, professional and positive. I was able with her help, to take a "helicopter" view of my life, as opposed to just "firefighting". As a result of working together, I now have direction and momentum in my life, and more importantly, have been able to help my son. Money well spent! A big thank you.
Having been stuck in a rut with my work, which was beginning to impact on my mental wellbeing. Suzanne has, with compassion, challenged and guided me to a place where I am making better decisions enabling me to move forward and my future feels so much clearer now. I would highly recommend the Coach Doctor!
Suzanne is passionate, engaged and interested. She helped me see what was getting in the way of me progressing and helped me realise things about myself I never knew. By doing this I was able to push myself to overcome the things that held me back as well as being more self aware. Thank you for the clarity!
If your need is for an attentive listener to help you frame clear ideas then Suzanne is the right coach for you. Her experiences and extensive high level training all qualify her to provide practical support and guidance. Suzanne can inspire you to reach your goals and make the changes that are right for you.
Dr Suzanne Triggs has the amazing ability to very quickly get to the heart of your needs, and then help you to understand what you should put in place in order to achieve your goals. Suzanne is very professional but easy to talk to and be around. Working with Suzanne was a great investment.
The power that came from working with Suzanne to develop my goals and my own solutions has enabled me to experience renewed focus, clarity and to make supported choices. Working together has enabled me to understand my motivation and improved my life balance.
I have worked with Suzanne for a couple of years now. Suzanne has an incredible approach to working with clients. She has academic rigour in the work she does, thanks to her research background; but she combines that with a natural warmth and humanity.
Suzanne is a brilliant, creative and personable coach. Professional but approachable. I have had the pleasure of working experiencing her one to one work and training. She is enthusiastic, dynamic and always brings out the best in the audience or client. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
