In Memoriam

Isaac Pizer

I was deeply shocked and saddened to learn yesterday of Sian’s passing. Over many years I was blessed to know Sian, and benefit from her guidance, support, help, and, kindness. I send my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

paula maddison

Beautiful Sian, loved and nourished by everyone she met. Such sadness that she is no longer in our world.

Helen Lea

Dear Sian – such a loss – I feel privileged to have worked with her. What a wonderful contribution she’s made to EMDR and the work of Trauma Aid. A truly inspirational person with such a generous heart. I’ll miss her. Rest in peace, Sian.

Priya Deshingkar

I had known Sian from the mid 80s and regarded her as one my closest friends. Like others I did not know the full extent of her work that has had such a major impact on so many. She was very modest about her own achievements and I wish I’d talked to her more about her work. She was always there to offer support and words of wisdom. I still can’t believe she is gone.

Julian Ridler

Sian was a good friend for over 30 years. We met through teaching English in Brighton. It’s only in the past few weeks that I have learned just how much Sian achieved through her EMDR work. She has left a remarkable legacy.

the Gallagher’s and the Davies’s

The world has lost such a wonderful and beautiful woman. Sending love to all her family and friends.

Clare James

Your presence of goodness and attachment to compassion will guide us all Sian, you were a teacher who taught by example and shared your hard earned wisdom with such generosity.
Your death is such a loss, your life such a light.

Hanna Angell – Sian’s Step-Daughter

I am sat here weeping this morning as I read the outpouring of love, gratitude and appreciation for Sian.

I was always aware of the wonderful work she did and of all the lives she touched but never really to this extent. I wish I’d asked her more, gained more from her knowledge and wisdom. We always think we have more time. And we never really know.

Me and my family are still incredibly shocked and saddened, she left us a mere two weeks ago. These things take time. They take all the time they need.

I am forever grateful for Sian for being such a huge part of my life and for all the ways she loved, and supported me. And for the gifts, the company, the joy and adventures and the love she’s shared and given my Dad. The loss of her physical presence in our life’s, particularly as my little boy grows will be huge. But she’ll always, always be with us.

Bless you all 🙏🏻✨💛 🕯

Marilyn Luber

I was shocked and so sad to hear of Sian’s untimely death. I have known her over many years as a woman dedicated to service and healing. She will be missed. My heart and prayers go to her family and our colleagues in the UK.

Alexandra Dent

Sian was such an inspiration to so many people in her life and she will leave behind a lasting legacy of all her amazing hard work in all the different areas of her life. The light within her will never die as it lives on in everyone that she ever met and who they subsequently meet. Much heartfelt love and blessing to her family, friends and colleagues and all who knew her and have benefited from her presence in this lifetime.

Dave Todd

Sian was very close to my family and we will miss her hugely.

Pam

Sian has been a trusted personal friend for many years now and introduced me to EMDR. I trained with her and my continuing practcie will be a tribute to her skill, courage and generosity. Her continuing presence will live on in so many ways. I am so grateful to have had her in my life.

Jeannet Weurman

It still seems incomprehensible that Sian has gone. Not many of us will leave life having touched as many around the world and done as much for humanity as Sian has. She and her work will continue to shine through each of us, and through this wonderful organisation.

Sally

I was shocked to hear of Sian’s untimely death. I will miss her and her wisdom so very much.

50 years of a wonderful friendship, never to be forgotten.

Alice Vine (Hucker)

So saddened to hear about Sian’s death – she gave me personally a huge amount and I learnt greatly from her wisdom, understanding and compassions. My thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues who loved and cherished her. She was a true humanitarian and did so much for EMDR and TAUK – such a huge loss.

Iris Kay

I have known Sian since the early days of EMDR in the UK. She was energetic, inspiring and she has left an amazing legacy which will live on. Truly an amazing women. Wishing my sincere condolences to her family. Love Iris ❤️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Matt Wilcockson

Lovely Sian, A gentle soul and a true humanitarian, thank you for teaching me so much both formally and through how you approached life. Thank you for believing in me. May your passage to the next life be a joyful one.

Maggie Bunker

I didn’t know Sian well but feel very priveledged to have been taught by her. It feels important to reach out to this group and honour her as we had shared connections with her, and each other, on our EMDR journeys. I was so shocked and saddened to hear from Trauma Aid of Sian being ‘very poorly’ and then passing. I think it was so beautiful that they let us know she was ill and set up the meditations to connect us and support her. I was babysitting on the Monday so I joined the meditation, but I did not have my camera on incase I was interrupted, but it felt so important to be there.
What a woman she has given so much to so many across the globe by her work and by being her. I think her loss will be significant to many. I feel we all carry her essence in the EMDR work we do and carry on what she facilitated. RIP

Alex Gaskill

I am deeply shocked and saddened to hear of Sian’s passing. She was a fantastic EMDR trainer, so knowledgeable, passionate and kind. She was so full of life and her legacy lives on in all those she has trained, supervised and inspired, as well as all her work for Trauma Aid. A wonderful woman, who will be greatly missed by many.

Rachel Cockerell

I had the good fortune of being taught by Sian this year on her EMDR training. She exuded care and confidence and a gentle, empathic energy in all of her encounters with those of us on the course. My thoughts go to her family and colleagues and the loss they are feeling right now. What an incredible woman – I’m grateful to have met her.

Hannah Bryan

Shocked and saddened to hear of Sians death. I was always so inspired to see the amazing work that Sian was doing within EMDR and importantly her compassion as a human being. She will be sadly missed.

Dr Jane McNeill

On every occasion I met Sian she was so kind, listened and took a genuine interest in everyone she met. What a marvellous legacy she leaves behind. Witi my most sincere condolences to her family, friends, colleagues and to all who were lucky to have met her.

Jen Popkin

Thinking of you, Sian.

Jette Bovingdon

I am deeply saddened by the loss of my Trainer and Supervisor Sian. She was inspirational, insightful, generous and kind. Her training but also later her supervision was always provided with such a calm and reflective presence whether in person or online. She helped me start my EMDR journey by giving me confidence to keep going and although I will continue this journey without her, all the knowledge, her wisdom and presence will always be with me as a source of comfort and inspiration. What a gift! She will be dearly missed.

Veronica Brown

I rang to speak with Sian for my Supervision/consultancy to hear the news she had died two days earlier. Like so many, Sian had been in my EMDR life and work, from 2007 onwards. I first met her in my training from Alex Richman. She followed my journey and I hers. The loss is huge. She touched so many peoples lives in every aspect of her life. She has helped me throughout my EMDR journey of life. The gap she leaves is massive, it has been a priveledge to have known her. Loved by so many, God Bless her on her onward journey, till we meet again.

Neela Masani

I am deeply saddened and shocked at the sudden passing of Sian. She was a warm hearted, generous and inspirational colleague and friend to me. My sincere condolences go to her family and friends. May her light continue to shine.

Ivana Trlin

I am so sad that our dear Sian, a great friend and colleague, had left so suddenly and soon. Sian was the most wonderful, compassionate, loving and kind person. Her work in Bosnia and Herzegovina ment so much to me and all the people here. She will continue to live throughout our work. My sincere condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.

Sandi Richman

I am shocked and deeply saddened that my dear friend and colleague, Sian, had her life cut short far too soon. Sian was the most compassionate, kind, funny and truly wonderful colleague and human being I have known. May the work Sian initiated through TAUK be continued by all of us who strive for peace and healing in conflicted parts of the world. My sincere condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.

Maeve Crowley

I have been shocked and saddened to hear of Sian’s death. Her quiet determination in pursuing her work in TAUK was an inspiration. She touched so many people’s lives by the work she facilitated. This is a lasting legacy. I send my sincere condolences to her family and friends. She will be sadly missed.

Ahmed El-Esh – Psychiatry (France) President of the Tunisian Association for the Care of Trauma Victims

د. شان مورجان قدمت كثيرا العالم العربي بتحولها في مناسبات عدة الى الوطن العربي، وتدريبها العشرات او المئات من المعالجين النفسانيين، كما انها ساهمت في تدريب اوّل دفعة لنا بالجمعية في اطار عمل خيري انساني بحت، كما انها ادمجتنا مع الجمعية الاوروبية الانسانية لرعاية الصدمة، وكان الفضل الكبير في ذاك للدكتور وليد وكل الذين رافقوه.

وفاة شان مورجان ، خسارة كبيرة لتدريب العلماء والأطباء النفسانيين في الوطن العربي، لانها ادمجتنا في المنظومة الاوربية ل emdr وساهمت في اطار دفع هذا النوع من العلاج لكي يكون متاحا في العالم العربي، كانت امراة مليئة بالخير والانسانية ولا ننسى فضلها…
قبلها الله برحمته الواسعة…

Dr. Sian Morgan has provided a lot to the Arab world by turning to the Arab world on several occasions, training dozens or hundreds of psychotherapists, and has also contributed to training our first batch in the association in a purely humanitarian charitable framework. The great in that Dr. Walid and all those who accompanied him.
The death of Sian Morgan, a great loss for the training of scientists and psychiatrists in the Arab world, because she integrated us into the European system of emdr and contributed to the framework of pushing this type of treatment to be available in the Arab world, she was a woman full of goodness and humanity and we do not forget her merit.
May God have mercy on her…

Dr. Jamal Turki – Psychiatry (Tunisia) President of the Arab Psychological Sciences Foundation and Trainer

Victoria

Thank you Sian for your training, teaching, support and kindness. Condolences to Sian’s family, loved ones, friends and colleagues…rest in peace

Matt Wesson

On a personal note, I want to thank you Sian for your inspiration as a colleague and teacher, as well as your generosity in giving your gifts to help so many others. Your example led me to help on the TAUK Egypt project and I remain committed to continuing your legacy in that country. I hope many more EMDR therapists will be inspired to give their time to help a traumatised world, just like you did. Your body may have passed, but your soul and spirit live on in the patients you helped heal, the colleagues you inspired, the therapists you taught, the community you serve, the teams you worked in and the organisations you helped establish. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time.

Alma Kovačić

Dear Sian, thank you for your openness, kindness, support, knowledge, which you selflessly shared with us. I felt that you saw the whole Bosnian EMDR community as a family. You are our family, our guide, the originator of a wonderful idea and practice. Rest in peace, our dear Sian

Matt Wesson, President EMDR UK

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and our membership, I wish to pass on our condolences to Sian’s family at this tragic time. We are all shocked and deeply saddened by Sian’s passing far too early in her vibrant life. She did so much for our EMDR community, not only through her work as one of the early founders of EMDR UK but also in the establishment and 13 years of leadership of Trauma Aid UK. Sian fought hard for the establishment of TAUK and it was not always an easy path, but her determination saw it through. EMDR UK will continue to collaborate with TAUK in the fantastic work they do around the world. Sian’s kindness, generosity, wisdom and commitment to helping a traumatised world will live on for many years to come. We will miss you Sian but our community will continue to be inspired by your work.

Bruna Maccarrone

I’m so deeply sorry… I’ll never forget Sian… she is an unforgettable example of humanity, generosity…. tireless in her mission to help others.
May God take care of her soul and bless her beloved ones.
She’ll be always an example for all of us.
Warmest regards

Jamie Hacker Hughes

Terrible and very sad news.
Rest eternal grant unto her and light perpetual shine upon her.
May Sian rest in peace, and rise in glory.

Tarik Al-Kubaisy

It is a real sad news.
I knew Sian since 2006 as a lovely l, dedicated and enthusiast professional and polite freind with real intention to reduce traumatised people around the globe and specially in Syria, Iraq and other parts of the traumatised and war victims.
My sincere condolences to Sian’s family, Friends, trainees and patients.
She was a good fighter and rested in peace.
I am sure she would love her mission to continue by our dedicated teams and will continue training others as well as find any opportunity to update our knowledge to help humanitarian efforts for All without discrimination.

Jo Ploszajski

I’m so very sorry to hear this sad news. I only knew Sian quite distantly, but realised what a special person she was. Please pass my deep and sincere condolences to all at Trauma Aid and Sian’s friends and family.
With deepest sympathy

Martine, Trauma Aid France

Dear all
We learned with deep sadness of the death of our colleague and friend Sian, president of trauma aid uk.
I particularly appreciated the kindness, humanity and simplicity of Sian with whom I often had the opportunity to exchange during congresses but also by email about training projects. Trauma aid France had recently taken over from the EMDR training conducted in Tunisia by Sian and our exchanges had ensured that we worked in continuity.
She will be missed by the trauma aid community.
I could not join in the collective prayer and meditation but my heart and my thoughts were at this meeting at the time of this tribute to our dear colleague. her soul rests in peace now.
The entire trauma aid france team joins me in honoring her memory and supporting her family.
Friendly thoughts to all.

Louise

It was with such sadness that I received the news about Sian. Only a month before she died I completed my EMDR training with her when she had been full of life and smiles and wisdom. Sian you have touched so many lives with your wonderful work and your memory will live on in all those you trained and treated.

Sincere condolences to your family and all who loved you, of which there were clearly many.

Rest in peace
Louise

It is with a heavy hand and heartfelt regrets that I write to express my profound sympathies and deepest condolences to Aid trauma UK and EMDR Europe for the tragic passing of Dr Sian Morgan.
Dr Sian was well liked and respected by all of us who knew her. It is said that when a person disappears. This regretful person continues to live in our memories, this is the case of Dr Sian who lives forever in our hearts.. All The Tunisian EMDR’s members join me in sending their thoughts and prayers to you and her family at this difficult time.
Please accept our deepest and heartfelt condolences at this challenging time.

Postovani profesore i ostali iz EMDR grupe,
Mnogo me rastuzila vijest o Sian, osobi koja nam je svima pruzala podrsku i bila puna razumijevanja. Sjecanja na nju su mi zaista lijepa.
Nadam se da cemo svi slijediti njen primjer ljudskosti i dobrote.
Zelim svima zdravlja i strpljenja.
Vama profesore, i ovom prilikom zahvaljujem na svemu.

Dear professors and others from the EMDR group,

I hope we will all follow her example of humanity and kindness.

To you, professor, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything.

Srce zna a riječi su još uvijek nijeme. U dovama mi je voljena Sian i cijeli projekat na čijem je čelu godinama dostojanstveno obavljala ulogu predsjednice. 💔❤

The heart knows and the words are still silent. In my prayers, I loved Sian and the whole project, at the head of which she performed the role of president with dignity for years. 💔❤

Marko Romic

Neka Sian pociva u miru Bozjem. Dok mi zivimo zivjeti ce i njena djela.

May Sian rest in the peace of God. As long as we live, her works will live.
