Rachel Suery


I am a teacher, trained educational psychologist, counsellor, and certified ICF coach from New Zealand who has been living in Zurich, Switzerland since 2008. I have spent over 25 years working as an international school educator in the field of coaching, counselling, psychology, learning support and teaching, in New Zealand, Australia, the U.K, Indonesia, Vietnam, Germany and Switzerland.

In 2020, I opened my private practice in coaching and counselling for young people and families. As a certified and accredited ICF coach, I find the most successful approach to working with young people is a combination of coaching and counselling, which is grounded in my background as an educational psychologist and counsellor. My work includes:

  • Coaching and counselling for young people

  • Group coaching, workshops and counselling programs for young people

  • Collaborating with schools to ensure systems are in place to support a young person

  • Relationship Coaching

  • Coaching families as a unit
