Susanne has a phenomenal influence in my personal and professional life. She has a unique way of calling me to my sacred center and invoking a dialogue with my deepest wisdom.
Susanne is a master of authentic living and has an amazing ability to empower leaders to step into their truth and lead from a place of grace instead of urgency. I am in gratitude for the support Susanne continues to offer me in reinventing myself to achieve whatever I want.

Throughout my coaching sessions with Susanne, she has consistently helped me get right to the core of what’s really going on with me. She has guided me through very deep waters and brought me back to the surface into clarity and insight. Because of Susanne, I have become much more confident and empowered to take life on with enthusiasm and strength.

I had the great fortune of taking a class from Susanne West. What a treat! In her class, one relaxes profoundly and lets her genius work its miracle! Susanne is more than intelligent; she is masterful; she is more than insightful; she is highly creative; she is more than understanding; she drinks deeply at the well of wisdom. I was not only educated, I was enthralled and enlightened.

In our writing group, Susanne touches places within that I may not even know are there, places that tickle and delight, places that are wild or subtle or places that stop the mind with pure gratitude for this life. Spirituality is nurtured and intuition and the creative process blossoms under her clear, compassionate guidance. The hand of grace has given Susanne West a gift.
~ Janet Bisbing, Social Worker
I always look forward to Susanne West’s writing workshops, as a kind of gift I bestow upon my creative self, as I would offer a massage to my physical self. The environment she creates is like diving into plate of comfort food (mashed potatoes and gravy come to mind) – warm, nutritious, and satisfying. She nudges us to submerge into deep levels and challenges us to fly beyond perceived limitations. The sessions are filled with intensity, humor, epiphanies and focused work. I have learned to trust in my ability to extract the words I need to express the layers of myself through writing. This is a gift I take with me everywhere I go.
Judy Geller, Teacher
My experience of Susanne West’s writing group is of a sparkling atmosphere riddled with good will that supports and encourages artistic expression from the depths of one’s soul. Susanne allows all our capacities to shine.
~ Robert-Harry Rovin, Resource Counselor & Group Facilitato at Mill Street Homeless Center
Susanne does not try to force anyone into a predetermined mold. Instead, she aims to liberate and encourage the artist (writer, etc.) to expand towards the potential she already seems to know is there. Susanne holds this belief and reflects it back to her students as energy they can use for creative growth.
Her imaginative exercises invariably give my creative self license to take over, and I am always pleasantly surprised at the quality and content of what flows from me during our meetings.
~ Fred Anlyan, MBA, Writer and Marin County Real Estate Broker
I have been attending Susanne West’s workshops and groups for over five years. The atmosphere Susanne creates opens the door to creativity and Spirit.
She meets each participant where they are in their own process and helps each, at their own pace, to connect with and respect their own inner light and creativity.
I have attended many writing and creativity classes and workshops. None drew me to continue for years as this one has. I look forward to our meeting every time as a place where, no matter what else is going on in my life, I can reconnect and tune into the creative voice within. Susanne’s groups are truly a gift!
