My daughter has serious problems with depression, ADD and being bullied in school. Susanne helped her out of the downwards spiral and got her back to the surface. From there she has given an invaluable support as a coach for my daughter. I have full confidence in Susanne and recommend her highly, especially for her direct approach and multi-cultural experience.

Simply put, a quick chat with Susanne cures anything. Whether I’m stuck in a rut or I just need some reassurance, I’m never lost for too long because of the effortless talks that always provide the clarity I was looking for. She is someone I know I can trust wholeheartedly upon the first minute of talking to her, whose business card will always remain in my wallet should I ever find that I just need someone to talk to.

On 08 March 2012 Susanne DiBiagio shared with SACAC Counselling’s Adoption Support Group. She graciously presented on her own personal experience with adoption and was able to shed light on many important areas. Susanne’s great depth of both personal and professional knowledge shined through in all that she discussed, and she was an absolute pleasure to listen to. She was able to provide the group with an inside perspective of some of the trials and tribulations of adoption, the joys and benefits of adoption, and some practical strategies on how to manage some of the difficulties. Meeting participants found Susanne’s presentation incredibly interesting, insightful, and heartfelt. They were all grateful for her time and for the incredible knowledge she shared with us that night. It is with no hesitation that I would recommend Susanne for adoption counselling, as she has certainly exhibited her competence in this area.

On 27 May and 23 November 2011 Susanne DiBiagio shared with the Crisis Response Network, a community outreach program of SACAC Counselling, her experience of supporting an expatriate family after the father died unexpectedly in Singapore. Meeting participants found Susanne’s presentation compassionately filled with insight and clarity into the many ways crisis responders can creatively meet the needs of survivors and participants left the meeting with an increased knowledge about working with the many organizations who have responsibility or who can provide assistance in the aftermath of unexpected crisis.

As an Australian living in Singapore with my husband and three sons, I felt somewhat alone when it came to the trials and tribulations of raising and dealing with often difficult and uncommunicative adolescents. These problems not only impacted on the teenagers themselves, but also carried through to both the home and school environments in quite dramatic ways. At my wits end, I was compelled to seek outside help.
Since receiving support counselling from Susanne, I now feel so much better equipped to tackle these difficulties, and deal with them in a positive way. Her holistic family approach was just what we needed, and the positive impact has been felt by all of us. Not only are the boys more content and better able to deal with the day to day obstacles of adolescence, but the ripple effect has been felt throughout the entire family, even spilling over into improved school performance!
Susanne’s professional yet compassionate approach, coupled with her sense of humour and ability to put everyone at ease, made the whole process so much less complicated and painful than I ever anticipated.

My wife and I have been together for 14 years and over the past 8 years we have been living as expatriates in Asia.
We recently experienced quite a bit of turmoil in our marriage. Because of this we sought couples counselling through Susanne DiBiagio Counselling. We would like to express our appreciation to Susanne as we felt supported and encouraged to work through our differences. Our relationship is stronger and more secure today because of Susanne’s professional and personal guidance. With Susanne’s caring approach we were able to identify and work through our conflicts and set priorities for us as a couple.
There is no way that we can begin to express all that Susanne DiBiagio Counselling has done for us, so we will only say a heartfelt thank you.
