Life Coaching

Family First!  “My mom will convince you that you can do more than you know is humanly possible. Funny thing is, before long you’ll be doing it. She’s been telling me for years that I could sing higher even when physically impossible, play more difficult stuff and write amazing music. She’s super honest so she won’t kid you into anything (except for singing higher), but if she thinks you’ve got potential, you better be ready for success!”

“When I began working with Suzette, I was wrestling with the direction of my career and how to balance my work and family lives. Suzette helped me process the pros and cons of a new opportunity that was offered to me, and after I decided to accept, she helped me work through some of the adjustments that needed to be made in my family life. Suzette’s manner was patient and nonjudgmental, and she was an excellent brainstorming partner. Those traits helped me to see my situation from different perspectives and allowed me to ultimately make choices with confidence.”

“Working with Suzette has really helped me to focus on my goals and not to be overwhelmed by them.  After each session I’ve had some small steps to take, and now looking back I can see how far I’ve come!  I am encouraged and inspired!”

“I was just considering starting my own business when I hired Suzette.  She helped me think through everything so I could make the right decision.  I was able to see things in an organized and unemotional way, and went forward with my plans with confidence!!!”

 “As an executive/business coach, I participate in a peer-coaching program that runs quarter to quarter, and as we approach the end of the first quarter, 2010, I had the opportunity to review with my coach, Suzette Parker, the progress we’ve made this past quarter.  I was surprised at how much clarity was gained, how many step-by-step plans were laid out and how many actions were taken toward completing those plans in such a short period.  As we celebrated the realized goals and progress toward other objectives, it occurred to me that this was a powerful exercise in keeping my self-image up to date.”                                                        Teri Johnson, CPC, Business and Executive Coach                                                                                                                                               My Personal Best, Redmond, WA

“I am so excited!!!! It’s official. I am the feature writer for Vinylradio, an online radio station of the 60′s & 70′s that is based here in Seattle. I remember when I was the reality coaching client for Coffee With The Coaches a couple of years back, I was asked what it is that I wanted (in respect to music of course) and I “laughingly” responsed with, “front row seats to every great concert with a meet and greet after.” I was “partly” kidding. But was alittle shaken up by the question of “how are you gonna get that?” Today, as I was on the phone with the program director/owner of the station, I was told to make a list of all the shows and concerts I would like to attend over the next several months so that preparations could be made to get me in to as many shows as I wanted to attend. I was not prepared for that! I will be reviewing these shows and featuring them not only on the radio site but my blog, Spin that 45. Thank you Suzette and Laurie for your direction and guidance! Maybe I need to make sure to take you along with me sometime!”

I call Suzette Parker my Business/Spritual Advisor.  My IT business is fast moving and growing. It takes everything I’ve got to be on top of it.  Suzette helps me stay focussed on what is important.  The main areas we focus on are::

  1. Time management & delegation
  2. Bringing my faith into my daily and long term planning and growth in allowing the Spirit to lead me in making wise, intelligent decisions.  
  3. Evaluating the purpose of my plans and how they fit into the plan for my life. 

Her coaching has helped me with my management style, helped me in facing business problems and helped me in daily life. I have become more bold and courageous and have more faith that I am able to make good decisions. Suzette’s enthusiasm, wisdom, common sense and good communication skills make her a great life coach.  She really cares about me.  She’s the only person I’ve ever known who could do what she does and I am thankful for her.                    Owner of a Software Firm – Bellevue, WA
