Hi, I’m Su Mee
Coach. Trainer. Improviser.
One of my core beliefs is that everyone is a leader, and that you have the most impact when you can be yourself. I love working with people that have the courage to learn to show up as the leader they are, share their story, and step into the spotlight.
I believe that if something scares and excites you at the same time, it probably means it’s worth pursuing. I also believe that everything is easier when you add in a bit of fun. While public speaking and being in the spotlight used to terrify me, I now love the stage and the audience and can’t think of a better place to be.
I named my business Into The Mirror Coaching & Training because I believe everything starts with you, your values, and your story. I want to take you on a journey into the mirror to explore what drives you and what’s behind your thoughts and actions. I believe that knowing who you are and what you stand for will create the confidence and commitment to step up, show up, and speak up.
My experience and education
I trained and certified as a coach (CPCC) with the Co-Active Training Institute, the largest experiential coach training and leadership development organisation in the world. I am also a graduate of their 10-month Leadership programme. I am accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), which means I follow their code of ethics. I also trained as a Mindfulness & Meditation trainer, I’m a certified Mental Fitness coach, and I’m a musical improviser.
Before I went into coaching, I worked as a trainer and change manager for international law firms for 15 years in offices across the world. What I enjoyed most about my work was building bridges between teams, and coaching people through change by giving them enough tools and confidence to make these changes work for them.
My claim to fame is recording the jingle to a TV commercial for washing powder back in the 80s.
I love coffee, connecting over coffee, and talking about coffee. However, I don’t drink coffee after 2pm because it keeps me awake at night.
I believe being is often more powerful than doing.
I am a mother to two boys. I schedule my work in a way that allows me to also have enough time to be with my family.
As an improviser, my favourite thing is making up songs on the spot.
Food is my love language but I don’t like mushrooms and yoghurt.
It all starts with presence
Presence leads to Confidence and Impact
You want to feel grounded in who you are as a speaker, a leader, and a human. You want to own your voice. You want to stop worrying so much about what other people might think. You want to have more confidence in speaking up. You want to be clear on your message. You want to be better at improvising. You want to be heard and seen. You want to have an impact.
I see you. Are you ready to be seen?
Get clear on the leader you want to be, develop your leadership style, define and own your vision. Be a more impactful leader.
Feel more confident on stage, create connection through storytelling. and create more impact. Step up, show up, speak up.

What clients say
“During an incredibly intense time for me, both professionally and personally, Su Mee was key in helping me re-align my goals with my values. By leveraging her ability to ask direct, powerful questions together with her deep listening skills, she helped me reflect on: 1) What my goals were and why they were so important to me, 2) what was holding me from achieving my goals, including becoming aware of my own self beliefs, 3) Defining the “voice” I wanted to develop to best represent me and 4) Defining a plan of actions which was tailored to me.
Su Mee is a highly experienced coach and can leverage on a number of frameworks and methodologies which make her coaching highly impactful. Partnering with Su Mee helped me strengthen my confidence in actioning my plan. Su Mee was a very kind and supportive accountability partner during my journey and was key in the progress I made.”
“I have had an incredible journey with Su Mee. We started the coaching sessions at a point when I was unexpectedly having difficulties at work. The sessions with Su Mee made me see the events in perspective, distinguishing my inner negative hyperrational voices from what really happened. She connected me to my own positive strength and drivers again. After six sessions I was re-energised, vital, felt much lighter and dared to let go of a lot of control, starting a more insecure career as independent consultant, with confidence. In a very natural way she helped me to let some enjoyable chaos into my life.
Thank you Su Mee, I hope to radiate some of your “lightness” to the people around me.”
“It was an absolute joy to work with Su Mee! I gained so much clarity from our sessions. She really met me where I was at and facilitated the sessions according to my needs and goals, whilst also helping me to explore avenues and motivations I hadn’t previously considered. It was a really wonderful exploration. Su Mee is a warm and incredibly kind professional with an ability to make you feel like you can take on the world, I cannot recommend her enough as a coach.”
“My experience with Su Mee as a coach was great. I approached her for support how to present my work, give presentations and become more confident in my professional life. She has a positive energy, good sense of humor and also makes you practice during the coaching session, which is really helpful to come out of your mind.
At the end of the coaching sessions I gave a successful talk at a medical conference, where my performance was evaluated within the best 20% of all speakers.”
“I attended an Improv for Coaches workshop led by Su Mee Tan. It was amazing. She led the workshop with lightness and joy, and immediately created a trusting environment among people who did not know each other prior to the event. I not only got valuable tools for my coaching practice from the workshop, but also received positive emotions and had a lot of fun!”
