Evidence Informed, Intuitive Grief Guide & Healer

Supporting Your Way - Dragonfly
White Plants
Suzanne Beattie-Johnson

When I went in search of grief support, information and guidance many years ago after the sudden death of two family members, I couldn't find what I needed.  There were grief services and counsellors, but their approaches were text book. I was searching for more. I needed a solid foundation of evidence informed grief practice combined with intuitive and spiritual insights.  This didn't seem to exist, but it does now.  I am Suzanne, the founder of Supporting Your Way - a service that takes holistic healing to a higher level. 

I am an empath who has the gift of intuition, which has brought emotional and spiritual healing to many people over many years. Being of service at end of life, to people who are grieving and those who have lost their way, is a deeply profound honour. 


I have more than 30 years’ experience in human services in direct service delivery and consulting. This experience teamed with intuitive and spiritual insight, promises a unique support experience.  

Supporting Your Way is welcoming, safe, accessible and inclusive. You can be assured of unconditional support, without bias or judgement. I can meet with you and tailor support to your needs in the way you choose.


There is no fee for an initial discussion. This will give us an opportunity to chat and get to know each other so you can decide if our connection and the service feels right for you. 

The Fee Schedule is: 

$90 per hour for individuals.  

$270 for workplace training and community presentations 
(includes preparation, a one hour presentation and Q&A time).
