My passion is to design the best possible settings for you to
unlearn, learn, and relearn all you need to achieve!
Achieving goals, development, and success does not happen by chance. Art and science are behind the scenes! Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours work together as an excellent system. Change and exceptional results are possible when these gears work in harmony.
I work devotedly with the art and science of learning and development and learning in action. I support you with heartfelt attention and courage on your journey to realize your potential individually or as a team.

I strongly believe that learning is one of the most crucial elements of a peaceful life! We can have a better life through learning! My mission is to cultivate positivity through learning and development!
I love to design creative learning projects which center on effectiveness. It is my personal interest to search for better methods of learning and development for any subject we mean to change. I am proud to design new concepts that take unfocused thoughts, issues, attitudes, and transform them into ones that serve us in better ways.

I am excited to witness my clients revealing their inner power and realizing their own potential throughout my online and in-class Instructional Designing, Training and Coaching programs. My clients both as individuals and as teams typically benefit by reaching their goals, overcoming obstacles, unlocking their potential, and managing themselves emotionally and cognitively towards their goals. They report that they feel to clarify their issues, self-confidence, and effectiveness. “…helped us move towards a much stronger, healthier and productive unit.” “I learned how to clarify what I want to say and say it courageously and clearly by understanding my and others' emotions and thoughts as a system. This totally changed my leadership style” “You encouraged me to express my most valuable insights. It is amazing to see how they are impactful on others.”, “We discovered our strengths both individually and as a team. We are totally a different team”, “Feeling the power of teamwork and having the opportunity to discover our team’s unknown strengths through sharing and communication were such great experiences. I learned how wonderful the results can be when we share between us. Thank you so much for your contribution to our empowerment as a team and our heightened mutual awareness.”
I bring curiosity, courage, compassion, and support to my clients as we find the best possible routes by which to replace their unwanted or unproductive habits. They say that I see and hear the things that are often left unseen and unsaid. “We experienced all the right things at all the right times for the outcome we reached. Thank you for your impactful analysis of us and for the genuine and intimate climate you have created within our team.”…“Every session was amazing. Sometimes exciting, sometimes revelatory, ultimately enlightening. I left each session curious about the next one”…“Thank you so much for encouraging me to express my ‘human’ side. In our office, we listen to each other and express ourselves much better now than we did before. I believe that we work more meaningfully, now, as a team.” “Elif had a great presence throughout the session, all participants felt that they were seen and heard”
I am known as a highly committed Instructional Designer, who is generous at sharing expertise and well-experienced at foreseeing obstacles, saving time and energy. Some of the common testimonials are; “During this time Elif went above and beyond the letter of our agreement, extending and sharing her professional expertise and passion to support, guide and enrich our journey.” “She did more than encouraging us—she was also highly engaged, very willing to share her expertise, and excellent at following up on the milestones of the projects. We reached an excellent outcome with her support.”
I love cases that challenge me as an Instructional Designer and Professional Coach and Trainer. It is my passion to resolve difficult and ingrained problems and to provide support and relief for my clients. The results are impactful: “I did not expect this struggle will be that easy to be resolved” “We had tried many methods for a long time without seeing satisfactory results. However, the outcome was amazing. I am impressed with the power of her method and, more critically, with Elif Suner’s personality and expertise in using her method” “She adapted her expertise to our corporate culture and passed it on to us. She showed us what to do and how to do it, and she prepared us for potential obstacles so that we had no difficulty during the implementation of the programs. We still feel her invaluable support, thank you so much”

I was privileged to enrich my knowledge with many theories and a Master of Education in Professional Development at UOttawa. I focused on Adult learning theories, Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, and Leadership. Not only did I read hundreds of articles, during my studies but I blended and grasped my practical experience with the latest academic resources and theories. I love to have this toolkit of various models and theories to blend with my clients’ own experiences in order to elevate their learning.
Today, as a certified Third-Party Neutral and Conflict Coach, I focus according to clients’ needs on conflicts both Resolution.

I carry a torch for the Gestalt approach, and I am a heartfelt Gestalt Coach! As an active practitioner of the Gestalt method, I work often with both individuals and groups. I love Gestalt: it is amazing to experience transformations of self through a here-and-now approach which so effectively shows the whole picture. This method takes my coaching style away from asking powerful questions alone, to a unique experience that opens the window to new, better options for realizing one’s potential.
I had three years of System Constellation training, which showed me the importance of our ancestors and of the collective consciousness in our lives and our decisions. I learned to work with the system constellation method to cultivate awareness, using it both at individual and group coaching sessions and at workshops. It is an impactful means of learning and seeing new perspectives on the “old” issues.
In a nutshell, I have devoted my life to the art and science of learning and development. Being in the cycle of learning, unlearning and relearning makes lives more positive, peaceful, and meaningful. I love to share this miracle!
