Coaching After Loss

Suzanne Howes

Hello, I’m Suzanne and founder of Coaching After Loss, which I established after losing my 17-year-old son Samuel to suicide in 2020.


When the rug was literally pulled from under me, it made me reconsider my whole life picture.

I can help you with:

  • Bereavement

  • Physical responses to grief

  • Finding purpose after loss

  • Future direction

I sought counselling with good effect but I recognised that I wanted to make changes, take back control and shape a new life.


After over 30 years in the NHS, firstly as a nurse and then in development roles, I wanted to combine my passion for caring and my coaching experience to support others following loss.


I provide one-to-one coaching support to help bereaved people regain purpose, meaning and focus after loss. I understand the enormity of grief and the huge impact physically, emotionally and psychologically.


I provide a calm and supportive environment for you to work through your challenges, explore options and find your own solutions. Coaching helps you to find a future focus and together we can achieve:

  • Improved clarity of thinking

  • Direction for your future

  • Restoring your confidence, identity and self esteem

  • Improved wellbeing, and instill a sense of hope.

You can contact me from my website, on Instagram, on Twitter or on LinkedIn.
