Editor of Psychologies, Psychologies

I am proud to be editor of Psychologies, a magazine that champions, challenges and coaches us to think differently so we can solve our own problems and create a life that nourishes us. Author of Making The Big Leap and The Big Peace, Suzy believes that the secret to happiness is living life to the full right here, right now, committing to a few goals now and again and taking Oscar, the Psychologies dog for a walk round the field when it all gets a bit too much.

Wonderful interview, Amanda and thanks Suzy.

I particularly appreciated your honesty about the glossy haircut. :-)

Having sat with you on your couch in the UK and on mine here in Australia, I know you don't always have 'perfect' hair—but you're always 'real', and when more women show up as open and vulnerable and 'human', it becomes so much easier.

It's always comforting and empowering to know we're in good company with our Imposter Syndrome—that it's not 'just me' and that there are ways to move beyond it.

Powerful stuff.
