She first founded her non-profit Full Circle Fund Therapies in the haematology and bone marrow transplant unit at St George’s University Hospital, London – one of Europe’s largest hospitals.

Over the last two decades she has designed, delivered, and evaluated a range of integrative therapy projects for some of the most complex areas in medicine, including paediatric medicine and intensive care, bone marrow transplantation, oncology, and neurosurgery, with two new ground-breaking projects under development for trauma medicine and renal transplantation. To date, Full Circle has delivered over 35,000 treatments within the NHS and Suzanne has developed projects in 4 NHS Trusts. She is currently advising NHS Trusts on a range of wellbeing projects specifically to support exhausted post-pandemic healthcare workers.

“Yes to Life provides such a vital link to help empower and equip people facing cancer and their families by providing essential signposting and evidence-based resources to support wellbeing, resilience and ultimately enhance quality of life. From the frontline of patient care I can say Yes to Life’s work has never been more needed.”
