Karen Sutton

On Sunday 11th September 2016 our world fell apart. I lost my husband, and my children lost their dad. Simon was a strong, witty, loyal man full of integrity. He was a wonderful father, husband, son, brother and friend.
The shock and devastation left us in complete turmoil. I didn’t know how life would continue – or even if I wanted it to sometimes. It just felt too hard and utterly impossible.

The Top Grief Coaches grief coach

Through all of this I had to try and comprehend what had happened, figure out how best to support my grieving children and to get up every morning and face a life I hadn’t planned nor wanted. There was suddenly a gaping hole in my life. The pain, the sadness and the despair were overwhelming, physically and emotionally. I was scared, vulnerable and also lonely.

Niamh Mitchell

My interest in psychology and personal development started when I was a young teenager, I took my first Life Coaching course in 1996 when the profession was still in its infancy before going on to study psychology in University. I decided to explore the world and my journey took me all over, working and in countries like Vietnam, Malaysia, Australia, Poland and Spain- where I finally settled.

Having spent over a decade teaching, training and facilitating I decided I wanted to reconnect to my passion for psychology in a different way. I learned that coaching had matured into this amazing profession that really spoke to my values and my vision for what I wanted to create in the world as well as how I wanted to serve. So I retrained as a Life and Grief Coach and I hold the ICF´s ACC accreditation.
