Grief is a normal and natural emotional reaction to loss or change of any kind. In itself, grief is neither a pathological condition nor a personality disorder.
“Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behaviour.”
We have all experienced grief in some way since the onset of Covid 19, particularly with lockdowns and all the changes and uncertainties that resulted from that time, which for many are still continuing.
How can I help you?
Using the Grief Recovery method we will explore why you feel you need support at this time. We will work together to explore your history of loss and look at what you have learnt about loss, what coping strategies you have learnt over time. We then explore helpful ways of working with your loss and grief. Grief Recovery is not counselling. It is focused on your loss and grief, why you need support, and why now.
As an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist, soul midwife and also holistic therapist. I am passionate about working and supporting people in their healing process. My experience includes assisting patients and families through their grief recovery while also aiding staff who are coping or preparing to support loved ones during tough times ahead.
Many years of working in palliative care provided support in both anticipatory grief and bereavement support. Encompassing all aspects of loss, grief and change included supporting patients, families and carers, as well as staff support, all of which underpins the work I do today.
I feel honoured to have crossed paths with incredible people during my time, also whilst working with Cruse Bereavement Care for many years as a volunteer, supervisor and trainer.
In my own life, I have experienced a great deal of grief, loss and change. My family moved around a lot, resulting in many changes in the home, school, employment, and sometimes countries. Having experienced the death of my parents, other relatives and friends, I understand that each death brings its own unique grief, losses and challenges.
In 2017 my husband died after a long progressive illness. During this, we both shared many different losses as his health deteriorated and together we grieved the changes that resulted.
My most recent training is in the Grief Recovery Method which introduced me to current, alternative ways that support people with their grief and losses. The effectiveness of these new methods of working has helped me to process losses and grief from my own past at a far deeper level
I provide a complimentary consultation where we can, together, explore possible ways forward. I offer this by phone, email or zoom
