Welcome to Awakening Hope 🌻

This FREE, transformative, four-day immersive and nurturing experience has been designed specifically for widows and surviving partners who are navigating the turbulent and uncharted waters of grief. If you're feeling sad, lost, and alone after the loss of your loved one, this unique four day event is here to offer you solace, support, and the promise of a brighter future.

During these four days, we will gather together in a compassionate and understanding virtual community for 30-40 minutes each day. You will be guided by me, Karen Sutton, the UK's leading Widow Coach, and together we will explore various aspects of grief, whilst also providing you with the tools and insights to navigate the complex emotions that accompany loss. Through live sessions on Zoom, you will find comfort in knowing that you're not alone in your journey, as you connect with others who are experiencing similar challenges.

Don't let grief isolate you. Join us in "Awakening Hope" and embrace the opportunity to heal, connect, and live a life alongside your loss.


 "The programme was amazing, I was talking with women who understood and I didn't have to try and explain widowhood. I never ever believed that in such a short time and having never met face to face I could feel so safe, secure and content talking and sharing, and that I would feel so much for each person involved." - Helen

You Are Invited 🌻 

I am putting together this FREE event so you can experience a sneak preview of what it’s like to be in my twelve month group coaching programme, Finding Hope In Widowhood. Within Finding Hope In Widowhood there are weekly coaching calls, a supportive community, and twelve modules covering many different topics. Over our four days together in Awakening Hope, I will be sharing some of the key principles we cover within the larger programme to enable you to feel calmer, more confident and most importantly seen, heard and understood, but also to understand how life changing twelve months together could be. 

Every year I bring together a community of women who have experienced the unimaginable and we come together for support, connection and inspiration. Being part of a group of brave and courageous souls, who all get it, is incredibly powerful and I want to give you the opportunity to experience this power and see if this is the right thing for you in your journey right now.

Awakening Hope is going to be a wonderful few days together and if you would like support beyond this free event then you know Finding Hope In Widowhood is waiting for you with open arms, with the potential to quite literally change your life. If you decide this isn’t for you then I know you will gain so much from spending these four days together and I will wish you well as you move forward on your own journey.

Wherever you are in the world, wherever you are in your journey you are welcome to come and join us for what promises to be an incredible week together.

We will meet daily over zoom, at different times each day, but don’t worry if you can’t make it live the recordings will be available for you to catch up on. We will all connect and support each other in our private Facebook group too.


Here is what we will be covering in our time together; 

🌻 Day 1 - Facing our Feelings - Within grief we experience a lot of feelings and emotions which leave us feeling lost, alone and very afraid. I want to explore these feelings with you helping you understand your grief better and how you can find more peace in your heart.

🌻 Day 2 - Cultivating Self Compassion - Let’s talk about self kindness and its vital role in your grieving journey. I will help you to understand how some small simple changes can have a hugely positive impact on your mental, physical and emotional well-being softening your grieving journey.

🌻 Day 3 - Rediscovering You - When we lose a life partner we don’t know who we are, where we fit or what we want anymore. I will help you discover who you are at your core enabling you to gain clarity and make decisions in this new season of your life with confidence.

🌻 Day 4 - How to Rise - I will share with you my unique resilience framework to help you maintain a positive mindset after the loss of a life partner giving you tips, tools and strategies to support you beyond this four day event. 


These four days will take you from feeling alone and misunderstood to finding a place where you feel like you belong, you will discover a safe space where you can have your grief witnessed with no judgement or expectation, you will be with others who get it and will relate to everything you are experiencing too. There is so much strength in coming together and I want you to be a part of this incredible FREE event so you too can experience the magic that happens when we create these powerful communities.


The overall experience of the programme was just what I needed after feeling totally ‘lost in my grief and sadness’. Karens valuable advice, support and guidance really has helped me face some of the difficulties, decisions and problems that have arisen for me during this time. Karen and the group provided what feels like ‘a huge supported hug’ at what is without doubt, the worst time of my life. - Lynda


The U.K’s First Widow Coach

I provide widows and surviving partners with emotional and practical support, wherever they are in their grieving journey, wherever they are in the world.

By channelling my own experiences of loss, I help widows navigate their trauma and manage their grief in a way that can reduce their suffering and cultivate hope for a brighter future. It’s my mission to help those struggling with loss look after themselves, take back control and build a more fulfilling life.

I am a certified grief educator and draw on the unique methodology, tools and experience of world-renowned grief expert, David Kessler, to help widows fall in love with life again.

When I lost my husband, my life was thrown into chaos. I found myself catapulting from situation to situation, responding and reacting as best I could to the new challenges life hurled at me. Over time, I realised the toll that this was taking on my body and on my mind.

I knew I needed to just stop, breathe and give myself time to reflect on how I was feeling, so that I could really identify what it was I needed. And so I did. I learnt to listen to my body and nourish myself emotionally. I discovered what soothed my mind and made me feel better. I developed the ability to unplug and disconnect from life’s pressures. I learnt to prioritise myself.

And so I speak from experience when I say that turning down the noise and learning to be still will truly help you to understand what’s going on in your heart and ultimately unlock a deeper sense of peace.

Don't let grief isolate you. Join us in "Awakening Hope" and embrace the opportunity to heal, connect, and rediscover the beauty of life.

You deserve a future filled with hope, and i'm here to guide you every step of the way.

I currently support a community of over 20,000 widows through my twelve month programme, my exclusive membership, The Widow Podcast, (The UKs number one podcast specifically for widows) live in person events, and free Facebook support groups. I have won multiple awards recognising the outstanding work I have done and the impact I am having in the grief space. It has become my passion and purpose in life to support those grieving the loss of a life partner to feel less alone in their grief and learn the tools to rebuild a meaningful life after loss. A life you really can truly love again.


"Working with Karen has been the best decision I've made since my husband died. I feel more confident and stronger than I could ever have imagined. I carry my grief grief with me in a more joyful way now. I make better decisions now because I have the tools from the amazing modules you've created!. I'm happy I'm only half way through this class,because I don't want to go! "- Shannon
