Dr Sue Egan

Psychologist, EMDR Therapist and Suicide Grief Specialist

Here to guide you through the rocky terrain of suicide grief with emotional and practical support.

Have you experienced a loss to suicide?

I understand.

It can seem as though a unimaginable event has shattered your world, and you’re uncertain how to piece it back together. Dealing with the weightiness of ‘suicide’ and the overwhelming emotions of loss, shame, guilt, horror, or pain can be an entirely unfamiliar and challenging experience.

You may yearn for a guide on what steps to take or what to anticipate – a manual on how to reconstruct your life. Yet, simultaneously, you recognize the impossibility of such a guide because everyone processes grief and trauma in their unique way. Your journey is personal, and it’s unlikely that anyone can truly grasp what you’re going through.

A straightforward handbook would fall short.

When I lost my elder brother, Andrew, to suicide in 2015, I felt torn between withdrawing from the world and seeking guidance on how to navigate the intricate feelings and thoughts that overwhelmed me.

I longed for someone who understood the depth of my experience.

I’m Dr. Sue Egan, dedicating the past decade to comprehending the complexities of suicide grief. As an advocate and public speaker on this sensitive subject, I am deeply committed to offering emotional and practical support to those navigating life after a suicide.

I understand the profound challenges of coping with the impact of suicide on your life. This is why I am genuinely passionate about assisting you in rediscovering and embracing yourself, managing grief, making decisions for the future, and constructing a life of significance.

Regardless of who you were ‘before’ or who you are ‘now,’ I acknowledge you. I sincerely hope that through this journey, you discover a path to healing, and I firmly believe that together, we can introspectively find a version of yourself capable of continuing to live a life your loved one would wish for you.
