Suzanne became enthusiastic about osteopathy after experiencing back pain in her late teens as a result of poor working posture. She went on to train at the British School of Osteopathy and graduated in 1998 with an honours degree in Osteopathy. Suzanne initially worked in London providing osteopathy on the NHS for a GP surgery and in two private practices, before moving to work in North Yorkshire in 1999. In 2002 she established Bedale Osteopaths with her colleague Stuart Bentley.

Suzanne enjoys treating all age groups including the younger members of the family and uses a wide range of approaches that include the very gentle cranial techniques as well as stronger soft tissue and manipulation techniques. Since qualifying, Suzanne has completed several post graduate training courses in cranial and paediatric osteopathy and has also undertaken extra training in Pilates and rehabilitation, the Niel-Asher frozen shoulder technique and ergonomic work station assessment. Her other post graduate work has included learning about the latest research into understanding pain and the immune system and exploring the ways in which people can reduce their pain experience by learning more about their own pain triggers and mechanisms. Suzanne also has an interest in breath work which can be used to help with stress and panic disorders as well as with people who might have a respiratory problem such as asthma or copd.
