About Dr Sue Egan
Psychologist, EMDR Therapist and
suicide grief specialist
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step ( Lao Tzu)
Over the past decade, I’ve collaborated with leading psychologists in the NHS, working extensively with families, individuals, and larger care systems. Following my brother’s suicide, my focus shifted to supporting those affected by sudden loss. This commitment involves researching suicide grief and traumatic loss, educating and supervising fellow health professionals on the impact of suicide loss, and engaging in public speaking on the subject.
As an integrative practitioner, I draw from personal experiences and research insights over the years, applying a variety of relevant counseling and psychological theories to meet individuals where they are on their journey. Establishing a therapeutic relationship marked by care, safety, and trust is central to my approach.
Recognizing the impact of trauma on both the body and mind, I incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a NICE-recommended tool for healing. My understanding extends to both actual (witnessing events) and perceived (imagining what happened) trauma prevalent among suicide loss survivors. If necessary, I can utilize EMDR to help distinguish between grief and trauma and support your healing process.
Working within clinical practice, I hold professional membership with the Health and Care Professions Council and British Psychological Society. Working within UK law, I provide online services globally.
As a single mother to four teenagers, accompanied by four dogs and numerous chickens, I deeply value the importance of holistic self-care. With a passion for the outdoors, I enjoy activities such as touring on my motorbike, practicing yoga, meditation, wild water swimming, running, and attending live music events.
