Coach: Susanne Sideras
If you want to have something you’ve never had before,You have to do something you’ve never done before.
Hi, I am Susanne. While living and loving abroad for nearly 20 years, on 4 different continents and raising 3 wonderful children, busy as I was, I never felt I was living my true life purpose. Waking up one morning unable to walk, sit or stand due to excruciating back pain, I realized that I did a lot of what I was supposed to do but not what I really wanted to do. This made me intensify my quest for a way of helping myself while serving others.
In becoming a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, I’ve made it my mission to serve those who can’t wait any longer to lead a fulfilled life with purpose and create meaningful impact with everything they do on their terms.
In our performance and outcome-rewarding environment, we sometimes feel stuck in situations and lose sight of the impact our decisions have on others. Where are we giving our power away? Where do we blame, numb, avoid or even give up instead of steering our boat according to our unique values, special talents and potential we have?
With my holistic approach to coaching and my “tough love” style, I enable my clients to shed light on what aspects in life they have neglected and focus on what they can control in the here and now. You move from “Argh, this is all too much”, “I am stuck”, “I just don’t know how to tackle this decision”, and “I don’t even know what I want any more” to “Wow! This is so amazing! I love the way I am with my family and friends”, “I never saw it this way but this makes so much sense”, “I will go into the meeting with a clear intention now”, “I feel in control and not in chaos anymore”….

Susanne was warm, personal and open while always remaining no-nonsense and straightforward about my process….”
“Confident to guide the sessions intuitively and intelligently, not being taken over by her role as a coach or going by the book but react to what is needed in the moment.”
“I deeply appreciated Susanne’s personality as an individual as well as her professional approach to her work.”
“Susanne’s variety of “tools” she is using in coaching sessions like embodiment, use of colour and texture helped me to open up and it was thrilling to go into the experience, I especially remember the crawling under the table.”
“Her encouragement and belief in myself came always at the right moment for me and helped me accept and embrace more and more of who I am, own my special skills and share it with the world.”
“I came to coaching because of my social anxiety, which led to isolation and a break up after 10 years. Susanne helped me see the light again. Also, I tend to avoid and stonewall when the going gets tough and Susanne’s ability of pointing this out to me kindly and curiously and non- judgmentally asking questions that made me look there led to tremendous aha- moments for me that I will never forget. I feel transformed and I cannot go back to “the old me now”
“Her caring persistence mixed with lots of humour made our sessions very light despite the sometimes heavy topics I brought.”
“The relationship with my brother changed and improved due to my work with Susanne. I never thought that possible. I always blamed him and never realized my impact on our relationship until I got coached on it. I am sooo grateful to Susanne.”
“I had coaching sessions with Susanne initially to improve my self-confidence and assertiveness. Also professionally, I needed to develop my leadership skills.
The discovery I made of myself with her support and the tools she showed with practical examples, never forcing or pressuring, but suggesting in such an effective way that you act without even noticing and most important you see the results for yourself because she opens the way and you no longer are afraid to go for it.
If I had to choose 3 words that define this change it would be “happiness”, empowered (life and relationships), clarity.
