SUE HOPE RHEA, M.A.

Certified Coach Practitioner

Hi! I’m Sue. I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you on your unique path toward healing and growth.

 

A little about myself… I am a woman who deeply loves Jesus and cares about people. I believe God made you on purpose and with purpose! My passion and joy is meeting people where they are at, and walking with them as they discover and become who they were created to be.

 

Whether you are a person of faith or not, I am committed to helping you set goals, move towards greater emotional health, and enjoy your most important relationships. I love supporting people in their journey of gaining a deeper awareness of who they are, and understanding how they come across to others.

If you are trying to navigate a difficult relationship(s), are in a big life transition, struggle with anxiety, or have experienced loss and are trying to regain your footing…I am here to help.

Being a dual citizen, I have lived more than half my life in British Columbia (an ocean and mountain lover!). Married to my wonderful husband for 26 years, we have two AMAZING young adult kids and one beautiful daughter in law. I love being active but a back injury has limited some of the activities I used to enjoy… bye-bye running 10 K’s or skiing, and hello biking, hiking and kayaking! I enjoy travelling, learning about history, reading biographies and watching rom-coms (to my husband’s chagrin!). I love living in Fort Langley, walking/hiking trails and grabbing a good tea with friends. For you Personality Buffs…I’m a 9w1 on the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs type ENFJ.

A beautiful verse to remember in your growth journey is,

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.“

 Jeremiah 29:11

God created us ON purpose and WITH purpose in life... to give us a future and a HOPE. We are spiritual beings who have souls, and live in physical bodies. Therefore, during our sessions together we will emphasize the whole person and provide you with tools needed to develop health and wholeness.

"Recently a pioneering band of researchers studied the age-old mystery of what makes people happy. Their answer is not what you might expect. What appears consistently at the top of the charts is not success, wealth, achievement, good looks, or any of those enviable assets. The clear winner is relationships. Close ones." David G. Myers, The Pursuit of Happiness

Relationships are wonderful, difficult, exciting and sometimes confusing. Nothing touches so deeply into our souls, and tugs so fervently in our hearts as the desire to have deep and meaningful relationships. The sense of love, intimacy and belonging are real and necessary for fulfilment in our journey through life.

I have found through experience that when our relationships are out of whack, our lives show it. I am passionate about and committed to support you in achieving a life with meaning that maximizes your vital relationships. I will provide tools and encourage you as you navigate through your three most important relationships in life:

 

  1. Your relationship with yourself: understanding who you are, your personality, the influence of your family origin, and what you bring to your relationships.

  2. Your relationship with faith/God: understanding your spiritual journey, how to walk in freedom and how to authentically relate to God without feeling phony.

  3. Your relationship with others: understanding your closest relationships, boyfriend/spouse, children, friends, etc. and how to maximize them and move forward in a positive way
