Suzanne Duncan, Author of the best seller “All by Myself & Rocking It! How to be Successful at Single Parenting” and a certified Master Practitioner of NLP and Time Line Therapy®.

Being happily married and looking forward to a fulfilling future with her husband and 3 children, Suzanne never imagined things would change forever when her husband died of cancer at the age of 44. Her children were 5, 7 and 9 years old at the time.

For 5 years, Suzanne existed on autopilot, in a fog of grief and ‘busyness’, being there for her children, managing the household, returning to work and studying to gain a teaching qualification, so she could be with her children during school holidays.

In addition to that, the emotional toll included uncertainty about the future, loneliness, self-doubt, changing friendships and the ‘stigma’ of being a single parent.

In 2016, Suzanne released the grief she was feeling. The grief turned into gratitude and appreciation of all that she had shared with her late husband.

With that transition, came renewed inspiration to create a compelling future for herself and her children and a determination and drive to help others undergoing life changes and loss.

Having a lifelong interest in personal development, she pursued training to become a mindset, behaviour and leadership coach and started her own business, Discovery Within.

This came about by adopting a growth mindset, focusing on values, becoming intimate with her emotions, and using all the resources within to build a strong and loving bond with her teenagers, and establish a business that she loves.

She helps…

  • Clients undergoing personal and professional transition and loss create a compelling future.
  • Clients enhance and strengthen their relationships.
  • Clients tap into their potential on the deepest level to rekindle self-love, self-worth, self-belief.
