Suki Silvertongue

Suki SilverTongue straddles the magical worlds of poetry and storytelling, cooking up lusciously lyrical and sublimely subversive versions of classic tales as you’ve never heard them before and specially the grown-ups...


Suki is the alter ego of Su Squire who has been telling stories for work and pleasure for more than twenty years. She created Suki as a way of taking her storytelling in a whole new direction, giving beloved and favourite tales a powerful poetic makeover. These upcycled tales are full of humour and humanity, painting with words a world of wondrous women full of strength and sensuality.

Since her creation Suki has delighted audiences at festivals, cabaret nights, poetry events, pubs, hen parties, birthday parties and even a yoga retreat!


With an a la carte menu featuring such tantalising treats as ‘Rapunzel’s Lady Garden of Love’, ‘Titania’s Bottom’ and ‘Lady Victoria Frankenstein’, you’ll be spoilt for choice and hungry for more...

Neil Lawson

Until 2009 I was a full-time IT Consultant living in Norfolk and working in the stressful Financial Services sector in London. I had (in theory) a 40-hour working week. My commute was 5-hours daily. I had unforgiving employers, tight deadlines and big budget responsibility. At one point I had a team of 12 and a budget of over a million dollars. I know all about being stressed at work.


I was married, with 2 young children – one with special needs. I know all about work/life balance too. I wasn’t happy or well, but I was too strung-out to notice.

Suddenly, I crashed. I was unable to continue with this lifestyle. I had to make changes. So I changed my career, my relationship and my home. I transformed my life. I know all about life transformation – from the sharp end.


I’ve been there and I’ve survived. Actually, I’ve thrived – and I can show you how to make changes in your life too, whether that’s to feel confident, change your job, career, life, relationships, achieve goals …

I believe that each of us is responsible for our own health, so I take responsibility for my own and challenge my clients to do the same.


I offer group and 1:1 coaching for people looking for support or encouragement to change their own lives.


I am passionate about health and wellbeing and my belief is that everybody is unique and deserves the best support which meets their needs perfectly. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to people so I work with you to achieve what you want, starting where you are.

Robyn Caston

Robyn is an empowerment coach and works 1-1 with people who are passionate about creating change in their lives. 


She spent many years travelling the world, volunteering on farms, in communities and on social action projects. During this time she had the opportunity to try many new things, meet amazing and inspiring people and learn new skills. Her biggest discovery was the importance of learning how to be yourself and accept and love who you are. (Not an easy accomplishment!) 


She believes that when we can drop our armour and be courageous enough to embrace our authentic selves - warts and all - that magic begins to happen! Then we can uncover our true gifts and talents and learn to accept, love and appreciate our individuality!


Through her coaching, Robyn empowers people to reconnect with themselves and discover who they really are, she supports and encourages her clients throughout this journey, enabling them to gain the knowledge and power to create the change they want to see and to build the purposeful and nourishing life they want to lead.
