She has run her own practice and also worked for the National Health Service..for 17 years as one of their few Alternative Therapists. Finding healing techniques and practices for Self and others she came across Vision Quest and Sweat Lodge.

She experienced some life changing moments with profound affect. She then studied further to become a Professional Shamanic Practitioner. Suze has lead meditation groups for children and adults in the UK and leads her own women's and mixed group in Portugal. She has assisted on Vision Quests in Wales, Uk and facilitates her own Vision Quests and Shamanic workshops in the foothills of The Serra de Estrella, she continues to offers treatments and workshops both in the UK and Portugal. Suze felt a calling after experiencing Journeying and being introduced to the profound power of the Drum, She now has her own deep connection with the drum and find immense joy in being able to offer this to others, and guiding them into Journeying and Self discovery, whilst in Sacred Space. With the drum and other Shamanic practices and tools her approach is to facilitate direct experience, so that in turn ' We all take ownership for our own healing, of our own connection to our true selves, with others and Gaia, bringing balance and an ability to open up to forgiveness, healing the past, acceptance of self,loving kindness and community and so much more'
Steve was born in Hong Kong and brought up in various parts of the world, including Yemen, Germany, the UK and then the Highveld of South Africa before returning to the UK as an adult. From an early age Steve was an avid reader of books on nature, religion and the paranormal, drawn to the mysterious, “other” within our being. In his early twenties he was being prepared for entry into the Anglican Church as a vicar. One lunch time, finding the church locked he complained to the vicar to be told it was kept locked due to vandalism. Besides, “A young man like you shouldn’t be sitting around in a stuffy old church. Take yourself out to the fields and woods and adopt an attitude of listening prayer.” So began a pursuit which persists to this day, leading him into silent communion with being, with the Earth and into trance-like, automatic Earth magic. After a near death experience led to a search for guidance, he found an exact description of his experience in the works of Carlos Castaneda. Gradually Steve learned that all he had been practicing and experiencing had a name -shamanism. This led to studying the Toltec and Shamanic traditions, as well as the continued practice of silence in Nature and Dreaming. He expanded this awareness by attending workshops and courses in shamanism, and other healing practices such as Reiki; travelling to Sweden and Latvia as well as various parts of the UK in his quest. It was the same vision quest in the Brecon Beacons, Wales that he met Suze. Steve helps facilitate Vision Quests and Shamanic workshops held in the Serra de Estrella, Portugal
The addition of Plenty-Light came as a result of their hand fasting ceremony in the Brecon Beacons,Wales, when they chose to bring back into their names the name of his Welsh great grandmother, Eva Plenty-Light.
