I can only say the sessions in Suzie’s Marriage Rehab course have been nothing short of completely enlightening. We have been attending both couples counseling and one on one counseling and we have found Suzie’s guiding principles to be a KEY component to our personal growth, our recovery and the growth of our relationship. Along with our love of each other, our willingness to try and our own efforts, Suzie’s insights have given us the tools and knowledge to not only get through the storm, but to start visualizing and crafting a future in which we live differently in ourselves and in our relationships. But, for us, Writing a list of specific needs, verbalizing them to ourselves and then to each other was key in allowing us to recognize our needs, understand them, understand how we felt when they weren’t being met, understanding if they were genuine needs or those borne of fear based emotions and then understanding them in more of a global, less specific setting. Since a big part of our problem was not understanding our own needs, not being okay with actually having them, compounded by not asking for those needs to be met, I hope to hear more on the subject from Suzie. We have read many articles, a couple of books and probably close to everything on the internet on the subject in our efforts to learn how to “fix us” and Suzie seems to have taken the best of everything I have read and in a, very easy to digest away, distilled some very sound, sometimes seemingly obvious concepts and presented them in a way that is complete, succinct, relevant and most important usable. One of the things Melinda and I have asked ourselves is why Suzie doesn’t have programs for parents and their kids. The importance of being loyal to the truth is universal and should be instilled in children. It seems that many of the concepts apply to any relationships and quite frankly, should be applied to all relationships BEFORE the storm hits. Her concepts are incredibly important not just in the storm, but as general personal growth concepts. I could ramble on for while, but I think you get the point! We have appreciated and enjoyed Suzie’s programs greatly and found them to have been completely invaluable and we look forward to living a life of Passionate Monogamy. Thank you Suzie!
I am so grateful for this site and this help. I can’t wait to be a walking testimony of this program. I’ve already listened to “First Aid” twice and enjoyed my Quiet 10 last night. I’m now on step two of the Betrayed Recovery Home Study course. I am so thankful I found this program. Thank you so much! I can’t even describe the help Suzie is to me!! I’m excited to keep going.
I’d just like to say that my husband and I have not experienced infidelity (yet), but as I read Suzie’s articles, I could see that our marriage could easily head in that direction if we do not make some changes. I was really drawn to the “infidelity proofing your marriage” concepts that Suzie speaks of. We are taking the approach of fixing things between us before it gets to infidelity because all of the factors that lead to infidelity (passiveness, boredom, feeling in prison, etc.) is already there. Thank you, again.
Dear Suzie, Thank you for the insightful Coaching sessions from March through today. Your advice and thoughtful direction has been invaluable. I look forward to checking in as future months pass by to relay positive progress and to receive your continued successful strategies.
We want to share our story and let people know that Suzie’s coaching and courses have been very very helpful to both of us. Twenty-three years of marriage to an exec who had a 3 1/2 year affair with a much younger woman at work. He wanted out after 2 years but thought I’d leave him if I found out so she manipulated him by saying she’d tell me and our children. She said she’d leave him alone if he’d give her a child, which he did (sounds ridiculous when spoken aloud). She told me in December via a text which she denied and then proceeded to tell our children two weeks later. My daughter had an amazing relationship with her father and she now can barely speak to him she’s so angry. I am trying to get her to listen too but so far she is unwilling. I agreed to stay with my husband and I was stuck in a roller coaster of pain. He has done everything right since the minute I found out and I knew if I could let go of the pain we would have a very happy future, easier said than done. After listening to Suzie’s session on forgiveness multiple times (while running, in car, on airplane) I feel as if my despair is gone and can see a happy future. Sorry for the whole story but while I’m sure all affair stories are very painful I feel as if the child, length of time of the affair, and the attack on my family was brutal and I had so much anger and hurt. The sessions are also helping my husband forgive himself. We have gotten through this alone (no one in our families know). We both did go to therapy but nothing has been as helpful as Suzie’s sessions. Thanks again. We look forward to the future sessions with Suzie.
Hi Suzie, Your site has been “extremely helpful” to me and I’m forever grateful for this service. I am married and had an affair with my “good friend”‘s boyfriend (now fiancé) on and off for several years now. I always struggled with the guilt and betraying my friend. I attempted numerous times to end the affair only to run back into his arms. After reading the articles on your site and going through your End of the Affair program (twice), I broke free about a month ago. Thank you so much!
I can’t believe it’s been one year since the “trauma” (not sure what to even call it). I had been uneasy and anxious (for reasons not well understood by me) for the D-Day. But when Aug 26th came, I had forgotten it was the 26th until I saw the calendar and then I recalled all of the emotions and the events and feelings of that day one year ago. I immediately decided to have it be a celebration inside of me and nothing else — I celebrated the witch being gone from the office and gone from our lives. I also celebrate Kevin and our drastically improved relationship. We are learning to more closely listen to the other person, to partner, to have more fun, to be more open and talk about our feelings, be more understanding and loving. We are learning the importance of making the other person feel loved and special and how important it is to show daily affection and admiration and appreciation for the other. I am SOO SOO SOO thankful for Brad initially scheduling us and for Suzie’s help — truly what we needed and we are so grateful to have Suzie as a valuable resource to give us the assistance we desperately needed. It’s been one year but I don’t want to keep an Anniversary calendar of the D-Day anniversary — I want that to dissolve but this first year since “the problem” is kind of a milestone and I stop for a moment to reflect on the past year and what we have learned—SO MUCH for both of us. Our relationship is a whole entirely different feel for which I’m thankful. What a blessing to feel like this. In fact, I honestly don’t think our relationship has ever been this good, even since marriage. I do remember Kevin to be super thoughtful when we were dating and I think that was definitely his best foot forward but I’m recognizing these same best feet coming around again this past year. He’s truly been wonderful, thanks to Suzie, who has brought out the best in him and helped him to work through his “stuff.” Suzie is amazing!!!!! I love her!!! We have appreciated her patience with us as we work through our ego-driven baggage. We are SO grateful.
I want to thank you again for “Graceful Exits”. While each program has helped the subject of its title, “Graceful Exits” is astounding. I am the betrayed looking for answers and solace. “Graceful Exits” taught me so much about human nature that I feel equipped to really make a difference with my marriage and relationships in general. I now have a better depth of understanding, compassion and will apply it to myself and family. It’s as if the pieces of a puzzle are beginning to fit together. Thank you.
Your website has indeed inspired me and shown me the more mistakes I have made with my wife, in trying to rebuild our lovely marriage. It has shown me that reconciliation is a process not a destination and has assisted me to finally decide on which wolf in my heart I should feed. Thank you!
I discovered my husband was having an affair about 8 weeks ago we are committed to making our marriage work. We have been attending counseling for the last 4 weeks but we are getting more out of Suzie’s articles and her home study programs than we have been with the counseling. We really appreciate how much she puts into all of her work. Thank you. This has been a Godsend for us
Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us. I really don’t know if we could have gotten through these tough times without you and your programs. Brooke has been loving and nice to me and there have been no awkward discussions about the past. We are communicating much better at work and at home. She deserves a lot of praise. I’ve tried to do so all week. I know there’s still work to do, but I’m ready for it. It’s the first time in a long time I feel secure with myself and our relationship and it really feels like I’m living more in the moment and not so much in the past or future. I can’t say thank you enough… coach. 🙂 As Brooke has said before, you truly are our angel. Have a great weekend!
Hi Suzie! You may not remember us, but we (Jack and Nora) were the cattle ranching couple from Colorado. We purchased your Marriage Rehab and did a session with you about a year ago. We are still together, and madly in love once again! If it is possible, we would love to briefly Skype with you sometime to say THANK YOU “in person” (but we don’t want to take up any of your valuable time from other couples who need you). If not, we want to say you are incredible (!) and you helped us to get back in touch with our authentic selves so we could get our marriage back on track. Thank you, thank you, thank you. God bless!
Suzie, we both have the greatest respect for you. God Bless and keep you in the palm of his hand – because that’s how you made us feel while we were blindly trusting you to help us though this most devastating period of our lives, while maintaining privacy. Your keen understanding, caring attitude, profound spiritual and spot on intellectual wisdom, still continue to resonate within us. You are truly a gifted person and Coach. Thank you so very much.
Suzie, I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t find your site on the internet this past Spring. (slight variation: “You find what you need to know when you need to know it!”) Thank you for helping me make sense of this chaos and paste my shattered self back together! Wishing you the Best – Always!
Hi Suzie, We wish you and yours a beautiful Thanksgiving and Christmas Season! We are Thankful for you helping people like us … who ‘walked into … pure hell … and are trying to find our way back to the ‘real love and respect’ we had for each other. We are making progress… I know we still do love each other. I hope our love can handle all this necessary ‘shaking off the dirt’ that spit upon us, during his ‘affairs-escape-rides’. And so many other affairs I am certain he has had and will not yet or ever admit – Thank you Suzie, for being available to help us find our way back to some sort of peace of mind. You are what we are most Thankful for. Your passion to help others is a gift we all will take with us and be grateful for….no matter what the outcome is. Thank you so much!
Thank you, also, for creating the website. It’s truly a gift from God and your content is unparalleled.
Another day of lifesaving wisdom from Suzie Johnson Phew!!! The insights contained in Wayward Rehab is the best, smartest, most effective information I’ve read or listened to – really well done. Thank you so much!! So grateful to have found this resource.
We would like to upgrade to Marriage Rehab. (please charge our card on file) I am just starting out with the Betrayed Partner recovery course and have only finished the First Aid session. I have also explored Suzie’s goasksuzie.com website. Her message of hope and forgiveness for one’s own growth, for the wellness of the self and of the family, and, if possible, also salvaging the marriage, is presented in a logical, realistic, and (in my estimation) comprehensive way. This is what lead me to purchase the Betrayed Partner bundle after reading much of what’s available on her website. So much of what she says just somehow “rings true” for me and is insightful and logical. She seems to blend respect for the wonder of life with respect for and acknowledgement of the realities of the situations, emotions, etc that I find myself confronting at this time of extreme challenge in my life. She is clear about the things that she believes must be done, and leaves the rest open as the choice of the individual. This instills confidence and trust. I have recognized that forgiveness is central to my recovery from this experience, and have been looking for a way to accomplish and experience true forgiveness, not superficial or limited forgiveness or a mere denial of pain or events. It looks like her resources can be a guide to doing just that. My husband and I are looking forward to incorporating all of her sessions into our individual and relationship healing processes. Thank you again for your attentiveness and amazing customer care.
Suzie is amazing. If she can’t get through to someone, I don’t think anyone can.
It was a great session I had with Suzie, more than exceeded my expectations and was of great help. Thank you very much for organizing this and I will definitely book some more coaching with her.
Thank you so much for having these resources available. Words cannot express how much I thank you for sharing your knowledge. Your advice has helped me not only to walk away from my illicit relationship but also to understand the reasons and rationalizations that kept me there. Suzie’s insights have also helped me to begin to work on my marriage and realize the answer to my problems cannot be found in another relationship. I don’t know what you went through personally to create this amazing company, but you have been a blessing to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you so much! The program has been my lifeline and already has helped tremendously. Can’t wait for my husband to begin! Thanks much!
Thanks so much Suzie. We have found your couples course we have reviewed so far to be VERY helpful and a “breath of fresh air” for both of us as we continue to try and figure out the best way to work through this. Up until now we have muddled our way through counseling, books, etc. and just have not seemed to be able to find a comprehensive approach that has helped make much of a difference for us so far. Finally, we have a sense of hope and direction. Thank you!
I’m writing just to share that my husband and I have used many of Suzie’s session from her Marriage Rehab online workshop, and have also been seeing a counselor regularly for nearly the past year. In addition to this, I have found an appetite for reading and listening to teachings of several great thinkers and spiritual teachers of our time. It is not in any way an overstatement to say that Suzie is without a doubt among them – she is so much more than a marriage coach, and I know that I have been blessed to have found her work right when I so desperately needed to hear, embrace and incorporate it into my internal life and my interactions with those around me. My family is much stronger and healthier for it, and I am grateful for a new start and newfound empowerment to make good and healthy choices, listen to and know and like myself better, to set boundaries, and to be gentler and stronger at the same time. Forgiveness has been a very hard process, and every time I feel myself letting go more, embracing that forgiveness more – knowing that self trust was the biggest element by far that was tangled up in all that old emotional baggage – I know that learning from and being encouraged and inspired by Suzie’s teachings and warm approach is what has made the difference. Everyone of us is a work in progress and paradoxically very much a good person at the same time. It is in allowing ourselves to trust enough to see that we are fundamentally good and whole, and to peel back all the maladaptive layers we’ve packed on top over the years, that we can approach and return again and again to that state of peace, community, and well being with the self and others. Awareness can be a hard and a beautiful thing. Please send Suzie my heartfelt gratitude for her most enlightened and beautiful, so very intelligent, kind and wise, work. She is without a doubt a rare combination of intellectual and spiritual genius and gifted counselor who, through her words alone, can provide the presence of a loving and accepting friend.
Good morning Suzie! It’s funny but by reading so much on your site and going through the Marriage Rehab course, I feel like I already know you, and I want to tell you that your advice is so helpful to me. If not for finding your site I would have not made the progress I have made since finding out about my husbands affair. He feels the same way. Truly, we thank you for all that you do.
First of all, can I congratulate you and Suzie on a fantastic website and superb tools and resources? They are proving to be a great source of help and support. Secondly, can I also congratulate you on such fantastic customer service? As for the missing Quiet 10 session, it is not a problem for me at all. It really isn’t. It was just that I thought I was having a computer-based issue and not able to access a file that I was led to believe was there. It was only because it was on the product description that I was looking for it. Since there isn’t actually one I can relax as it means I am not going mad or that my computer is not having issues. As for your incredibly generous compensation offer, let me say thank you very much. However, there is no need to make such an offer (though I am very grateful and appreciative that you did make it). I appreciate that every session you offer is world class and very helpful but I wouldn’t dream of expecting such generous compensation over such a trivial matter. It was a minor mistake and it certainly did not diminish the whole experience you and Suzie have provided. Thanks once again.
Hi Suzie! I wanted to thank you so very much for our call last Tuesday. It REALLY was helpful in a number of ways. You just don’t know. Thank you again for all that you do. Our sessions have been more valuable than I can express. You truly are a phenomenal person and coach. (and that’s from me and Matthew)
I had another session with Suzie I want to get access to the Marriage Rehab for couples and she said that because I had already purchased several, credit could be given for those purchased and I could get a new total price from you on the whole set for my husband and I. As an aside, you guys are awesome. You have been more than kind when I have called and spoken with you, and your wife is an absolute gem. Suzie’s programs and coaching have helped me more than I can ever explain and I am so happy that I found your service. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much!
Suzie’s Marriage Rehab home study program has been great. So many insights that we would have not thought of on our own. Thank you for having these out there to help us along this journey. Our goal is to make this the “best worst thing” that has ever happened to us and with the help of the program, I see no reason why it won’t be. Thanks again.
Greetings from the UK, Suzie. I am extremely impressed with your courses so far. They have helped me to achieve a state of mind that I couldn’t believe possible for me — in only a few days ago. I’m now upgrading to the complete collection as I think these will really help us both and our relationship to no end! Thank you.
Hi Suzie! Thank you for your website. I am learning a lot and your articles give me peace of mind and re-kindle the Love in my heart. Suzie if you were in front of me I would hug you tight. So please pretend, receive my hug of thanks. I appreciate your approach. It makes every wounded psyche back to wholeness. Self respect is restored and forgiveness is on the horizon. Thank you again and your articles, for a lack of the better word right now, is to me, the best I’ve read. I still go back to your articles every day and every moment I get . Thank you so much. God bless you. Know that you are helping a lot of people, wounded or not. Hope to meet you in the future.
Many thanks. I logged in and have listened avidly to Suzie. I feel truly better. She explained everything so well. I saw what I now need to do. I shall listen again in the morning. Thank you for your wonderful, powerful help.
My husband and I have found GoAskSuzie to be extremely helpful so far. I would (and have) recommended this site to all my friends who are having these types of issues. Thank you!
Thank you for talking with me yesterday. I found it very helpful. I just tried to book another session, and you do not have anything until next Wednesday. Is there anything sooner? Please let me know if you have an earlier time to talk.
Thank you for your insight and assistance today. I’m so grateful to have given myself permission to begin to forgive myself for my behavior. I took a two-hour hike in the woods in the rain today and emerged with a sense of gratitude and renewed hope for my future. I will surely continue to learn how to be my best self, but I feel I am definitely on my way. Your work is important, and I’m so thankful for your coaching.
Suzie, Thank you, thank you, thank you. I woke to the best morning I have had in well over a year. We have done such amazing work over the last 2 days. I can’t wait for day 3. Your insight, knowledge and personality, along with your tools you have provided me, have shortened a very difficult journey. Thank you for the bonus… a new perspective in dealing with my relationship with my daughter.
Suzie, This experience has been life-altering. You have given me a new perspective and have framed this even in a way that I was unable to do on my own. I woke again at 4:00 am (but) the first words that came to mind were… “Today, my heart is full of forgiveness.” I love that man so much and I know that he is worth fighting for. Thank you for your wisdom, talent, charm, empathy & humor.
I’m so grateful you recommended the 90-minute session with Suzie. We actually ended up going a little overtime which I really really appreciated. I think I got a lot out of this session. Suzie is magic. Her Wayward Rehab course continues to be very helpful as well. Thank you!! There will be a lot of work and challenges coming up to me in the next months but I am ready to face them. Again I’m very glad I made the choice to consult with Suzie. Please let her know that I’m very grateful for her insight and advice. Hope you guys have a great weekend. (it’s labour day weekend up here in Canada)
Suzie, Thank you so much for your time and giving me the tools for my journey to neutral and internal peace. I’m so grateful for the universe for putting you in my path of healing. What amazed me the most was how quickly you not only understood me and my situation but how my mind was processing everything which then you were able to give me exactly what I needed. You were so easy to talk to as well. It’s like I knew you! I went back to work after 5 weeks of being home and am not only putting the health issue behind me but also the situation that happened. It’s like starting fresh with a new perspective on life. Please keep doing what you’re doing, because you’re absolutely amazing and are helping so many people like me who have no where else to go. I wish you and your family success, happiness and a lifetime of Love! With Deepest Gratitude
