Intimidation has never succeeded in making me commit to a new workout regime, but Susie's warm, friendly approach was just what I needed to become a Pilates convert.

"I started antenatal Pilates with Susie at 16 weeks pregnant and can honestly say it's the most beneficial thing I could have done. Susie has a wonderful, warm style and all the exercises are very well designed for pregnancy. Before I started, I needed to see a physio on a regular basis. Recently, I've only needed one trip (in my last trimester), and was told that my back was in excellent shape! Worth every penny and a highlight of my week, I'm looking forward to continuing after the baby is born!"

Lou Gosmore


"I started practising pregnancy Pilates quite early on in my pregnancy and it has proved invaluable. Susie's gentle yet effective techniques are perfect for stretching out a sore back and also strengthening those all important pelvic floor muscles. Her warm and friendly personality makes the class fun and something I look forward to each week."

Maureen Mounouchos


"Susie's range of Therapeutic treatments are amazing and so is Susie! She creates a atmosphere of calmness and peace while she carries out your treatment. She is professional yet friendly, and it is obvious Susie loves what she does and has the experience and expertise of more than anyone I know!"

Antonia Vincent


"I have been attending Susie's Pilates classes since April this year (2013) and I have become addicted! Susie's classes are instructive, varied and enjoyable, and I have really begun to notice the positive results that come from practising Pilates. Whilst ensuring that we go at the right pace to suit ourselves on an individual basis, Susie is also great in making sure that we push ourselves just that little bit further. I get a lot out of Susie's classes and would recommend them to everybody!"

Emily Pick


"Susie is a warm, genuine, friendly and lovely person to be around, she makes you feel totally at ease and relaxed. Her massage technique is wonderfully relaxing and restorative, and her make up is transformational. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone seeking professional make up for weddings and events, to anyone looking for an excellent holistic and massage therapist and as a warm, friendly and expert Pilates instructor."

Laura Presnel


"I can not say enough great things about Susie. She is so personal and professional and is excellent at the services she provides. She always has a warm smile and is so welcoming and friendly. If you have never had a facial she is also the person to see. She will personalise the experience and recommend skincare rituals and organic products to use. She also has a lot of knowledge to share about make up applications as well as Pilates."

Francesca Rutherford


"I have tried a number of Susie's therapies and find her to be relaxed and effective in her approach to her work and I always feel calm, relaxed and revived after a treatment. She is able to offer many types of treatment, I have had reflexology and massage, both lovely. Susie uses gentle and organic products and all have a delicious smell! I particularly recommend her facials which are dreamy, and I tell her she has magic hands!"

Micheala Clack


"How do you know your facial didn't just feel amazing but made a difference? When you go into work after the weekend and your colleagues tell you you look younger! Thank you Mermaid Wellbeing for another heavenly spa treatment"
