Susie Johns is an original, a one-off and it’s that uniqueness which makes her hard to categorise. She has never been one to be pigeon-holed and she brings her many gifts and decades of experience to bear on enabling her clients to become the best version of themselves. That can take the form of a Tarot reading to help resolve an immediate problem, stress busting practice like meditation, confidence building exercises like Voice lessons and some 21st Century Presentation Skills or resolving chronic or long-term issues with EFT Tapping, they all have their part to play. Her profound insight is also enhanced by her expertise in Astrology, Numerology and Graphology. Whatever discipline she happens to employ, you can guarantee that she will also be using her highly developed intuition to tune in to the living, the one person sat opposite her or talking to her via Skype.
Susie originally trained as a teacher at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where she was awarded an AGSM (Associate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama) completing her training at Trent Park now known as Middlesex University. She was asked back to teach on their BA Performance Arts Course. She then went on to teach English, French, and Drama in Inner London schools, where she quickly became department head.
Susie was also one of the pioneers of Theatre in Education throughout the 1970’s working at The Young Vic, Nottingham Playhouse and the famous Cockpit Theatre.
The practice and study of Meditation started at an early age and she was fortunate to encounter many great exponents of the art and it very quickly became an integral part of her life. Even though she amassed an impressive variety of TV and theatre credits as an actress, her passion for the intuitive, holistic life led her to develop a parallel career as an Intuitive Counsellor and Life Strategist.
Although her services were immediately well received, it wasn’t until she broke her hip in the early 1990s that she was forced to stop acting and reassess her own life. Susie decided to go public with her holistic work and, within a week, was doing a live phone-in on ITV's This Morning with Richard and Judy. As an experienced performer, she adapted quickly to the demands of live television and radio.

Susie empowers people through self-awareness and gets you to believe in your innate power to shape your own life. Susie facilitates the journey to success in all areas of your life.
Susie presented Sixth Sense, her own ground-breaking and high rating network series for ITV; this was followed by Make Yourself at Home for Carlton. She was a regular contributor to GMTV, and has made frequent guest appearances on This Morning, Five’s Company, Style Street, Light Lunch, Magic & Mystery Show and as part of The Russell Grant Show on Sky One; Susie took 4 people through her ‘Detox Your Life’ programme.
On radio, Susie had a regular slot on Talk Radio’s Mike Allen Show. She was also a studio guest for the launch of Viva, the women’s radio station. Susie has done phone-ins for most of the BBC and Independent Local Radio stations.
Susie had a regular column, Susie Johns’ Psychic Helpline that appeared on Mondays in the Self section of the Daily Mail. She also contributed special features, Astrology and Christmas Presents, in November 2002 and on New Year 2003. Previously she has had regular columns in House Beautiful, GMTV Magazine, and Flora Magazine. She has also contributed articles to the Western Mail, Wales on Sunday, Metro.
