About Sue

My  background’s in Engineering. I’ve got over 20 years’ experience of leading major Change programmes, delivering £multi-million savings for global organisations, including Corning, Danone and Lloyds Bank.   So I’ve experienced plenty disruptive stresses.

Then a training course changed my direction.

About Sue photo  

I'd gone to learn about communication, and how we think.

I discovered that without changing the outside situation, a few targeted thinking tweaks can get completely different results, instantly. 

And the more I experienced, the more something seemed familiar.  It’s Process Engineering for the thinking 

Knowing just how to make those few small changes, which make all the difference.  So distilling thousands of hours of training, discovery and development, I created FAST Pathways to share these powerful skills even more widely.


I truly believe in every individual’s right to a challenging and fulfilling life, and to every organisation’s right to reap the rewards of building and supporting a capable and motivated workforce.

Stress is a given, and as long as it doesn’t outstrip your resources for dealing with it, it’s useful.  It’s not always easy to resolve the causes, but topping up your resources enables you to take those stresses more comfortably in your stride.  And that’s what FAST Pathways is designed to support.

I’m a Master Practitioner and Trainer of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), and became one of the UK’s first Approved Havening® Practitioners, trained in each by the original creators.  I have a Diploma in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), a combined Diploma in Hypnotherapy, Coaching and NLP; and Institute of Leadership and Management certification as a Mentor and Coach.

“What Sue taught me has made a huge difference to my life. I no longer suffer from the horrible feelings inside my stomach, making life so much more enjoyable.  I also sleep so much better at night.  I’ve already recommended the FAST Pathways skills to family and friends.”  Gill, Wigan 


"My job’s really stressful. It used to build up until easy, normal situations became a big challenge.  With the skills I’ve learned from Sue, I feel so much better, and stronger.  I have the skills to deal with any wobbles.”  Zoe, Liverpool

These skills have completely changed the course of my life.  Maybe they can yours, too – that’s why I’m so passionate about sharing them.  Do get in touch to explore the difference it can make to you, or your organisation
