Suzanne studied Philosophy, English Literature and Media Studies at Munich and Vienna universities.  She married a British Diplomat, had 2 children, and lived and worked for 35 years in the Middle and Far East. During that time she trained and worked as an artist potter and exhibited in Europe and Japan.

In 2006 she qualified as a Jungian Psychotherapist with the Guild of Analytical Psychologists, where she continues to work as a Case-supervisor and Seminar Leader.  She has a private practice near Stow on the Wold and in Chelsea, London.
