      Are you weathering any of these storms?

      • health challenges / End-of-life (e.g. cancer, dementia, MND)
      • stuck grief due to traumatic / tragic circumstances (e.g. overdose, suicide)
      • suicidal thoughts after the death of a child / spouse / close friend
      • relationship wounds (e.g. betrayal or estrangement)
      • feeling disconnected with your child, or your own voice 
      • loss due to a family / work conflict or narcissism

      These types of loss can cause profound sadness and grief.

      These are my specialisms that can help guide you through.


      • children / teens issues
      • tragic, untimely deaths (children, cancer)
      • spousal loss, which can be complex
      • vocal & communication coaching for loss of confidence
      • parenting coaching through grief or divorce
      • spiritual coaching and unusual spiritual experiences

      Your grief from loss is precious and it deserves to be expressed and
      processed with someone who understands the complexity of the grief journey.

      Have you tried alternative support that uses only one approach
      which you have found ineffective?

      S.T.E.E.R your way through grief with a guide by your side
      to see what you've never seen before.

      Using a unique multi- perspective approach personalized to your values and needs… 

      Because grief is an all-consuming ‘body, mind, spirit’ experience that requires a fully integrated approach.

      Let’s work together to find an effective way, using the S.T.E.E.R. approach, 

      to release painful feelings of trauma and loss so you can feel uplifted.  

      When Will I Feel Better?

      The passing of time is not enough to bring healing and wholeness.

      It takes dedicated time to intentionally process it.

      Santou Carter

      What's different about me?

      Hi, I’m Santou.  I’m an Advanced Grief & Trauma Specialist in private practice. My calling as a Servant Leader is to guide people with trauma, anxiety, loss & grief began 25 years ago. 

      My mission is to help people move through stages of hope keeping them accountable on their journey.  I serve as a traumatic grief therapist, community healthcare chaplain, certified coach, an international speaker and published writer.  I can help guide you through the transitional stages of your life’s journey from loss to re-connection, so you can live a full life with hope.

      I do this using a unique multi-disciplinary approach bridging psychotherapy, cultural knowledge, spirituality, theology and research.

      No matter your faith, religious denomination, or cultural beliefs, my approach is all-inclusive.  I welcome those who might have become disillusioned with, or still attend, their faith community or who consider themselves atheist.

      What Clients Are Saying...

      "I had Santou for 16 sessions and she had helped get my thoughts and feelings out. I was able to express feelings openly as she made me feel more comfortable".

      Miranda 1-To-1 Adolescent

      Santou was able to help me reconcile my challenges at work with the fact that I am not alone and there are many others going through similar challenges. This gave me hope which, at the time, I was very short of. You would be amazed how hope can help transform your physical, emotional and psychological state.
