Who is Suzie?
I’m a Relate-trained counsellor, an accredited parenting educator, an agony aunt with over 15 years experience of working on UK national magazines (including eight years as agony aunt of Women’s Own), newspapers, television, radio and online and the author of 26 books – the two most recent being Teach Yourself Step-parenting and Teach Yourself Single Parenting. I was the counsellor in ‘Stepfamilies’, a major BBC1 series, helping people sort their way through the difficulties of bringing new families together.
