Suzanne originally studied Business, Finance and Law before starting her own London based design company.

Following a diagnosis of Lupus in 1996 she realised the benefit of complementary therapies in helping cope with her illness and its symptoms.
She studied the science of mind-body medicine extensively including Harvard Medical School (Relaxation Response and Positive Psychology), Birkbeck, University of London (Health Psychology), graduating with a Master of Science (Health Sciences) from St George’s, University of London. She also qualified in energy medicine, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), reflexology and Emotional Freedom Technique.
She introduced St George’s Hospital’s first complementary therapy programmes for paediatric medicine and haematology and bone marrow transplantation, receiving St George’s Hospital’s Exceptional Award in 2005. Following an NDE brought about by a rare form of meningitis, she launched the Full Circle Fund initially within St Georges Hospital until 2015 when Full Circle Fund Therapies became an independent charity.
