Developing performance psychology skills can improve productivity, resilience, and performance. Sue is experienced in providing targeted trainings designed to help participants experience optimal mental states in their work.
Sue speaks passionately on positive psychology, flow state, mindfulness, and values-driven perspectives. Sue currently runs meditation mini-retreats aimed at completely relaxing, gentle yoga & meditation classes, and tailor-made training programs for organisations and individuals interested in developing mindfulness, awareness, and flow.
