This workbook is a welcome and complimentary addition to her original self-help book previously published: Finding Blue Beach Glass: Discovering the Extraordinary in the Ordinary. This workbook would be particularly helpful for people who are looking for deeper meaning and purpose in  their work or personal lives. It is available by contacting Susan directly at or online at or

“Susan Doiron’s inspirational workbook is a tool to be embraced by counsellors and career practitioners across the Island and beyond! I was delighted to hear that it will soon be made available to the public. This well written and useful tool will be most helpful to individuals in the process of examining their lives with the goal of finding meaning and personal satisfaction in the work that they do, either in a paid profession or in other aspects of their lives. Perfect for individuals in transition, this workbook can be used with the support of a counsellor or on its own. I would certainly recommend this workbook as a self-help tool for anyone interested in exploring their vocational path on a deep and meaningful level,” says Janet Needham Payne, MEd, CCC Site Leader/Counsellor at Career Development Services.

“Susan has been a mentor, a colleague, and most importantly a trusted friend for many years. I would like to congratulate her on the release of her new workbook. While reading her pages, Susan’s voice and unique way of connecting with people becomes evident and remains a cornerstone. This workbook provides the reader with a “trusted companion” while exploring personal work, and offering creative new perspectives and helpful images for contemplation. Engaging to read and full of thought provoking content, Susan’s work speaks to a wide audience,” says Christopher Doiron, MSW, RSW Family Therapist at Catholic Family Services Bureau.

This workbook would be helpful to people who are looking for meaning and purpose in their current work or personal lives; those who are seeking a career or interest pathway that illuminates deeply held interests, and those who are planning a retirement transition and wish to pursue aspects of their lives that may have been pushed aside while they were busy making a living or raising a family.

Susan is passionate about helping people discover who they really are and by extension a way of being and doing in the world that gives meaning and purpose to their lives. She emphasized that we tend to focus on external signals when choosing careers (money, status and approval of others) rather than focusing on the internal ones. Even though people achieve success during the course of their careers, if what they do is not reflective of their core self, they may become unhappy and dissatisfied.

Susan holds a Masters of Education in Counselling from Acadia University and is a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and is currently working as a school counsellor. She is also the author of a self help book: Finding Blue Beach Glass: Uncovering the Extraordinary in the Ordinary. She resides in Rice Point, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Finding Blue Beach Glass: A Personal Development Workbook (ISBN: 978-1621374930) is published by Publishing in College Station, TX. For more information visit the book’s website at Susan is on Facebook at and follow her on Twitter at
