How I can help you 

Are you struggling to come to terms with the loss of a loved one?  
Are you feeling ‘stuck’ in your grief?  
Do you find it difficult to find the right way to comfort family or a friend who is grieving?  
I am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist- using the Grief Recovery Method programme to show and equip people who have experienced bereavement, loss of a spouse, divorce, parent or any of over 40 life losses.  
After experiencing the loss of my husband in 2015 I felt numb, heartbroken and wondered how can I carry on. I experienced memory loss, and the inability to express myself- simply put I lost my voice. I finally decided to have Counselling after being discouraged not to do so - “You don’t need it, get on with your life” and “Be strong” - but how to during such a dark time?  
I completed my counselling and therapy but still felt incomplete. I read articles, did activities, hoping and searching for that peace, completeness and closure of losing my husband. I just did not have the tools nor was I given the tools to complete my loss.  
Now that I have experienced and completed the Grief Recovery Method - it is the first programme that has given me a step by step skill set to feel complete with the loss of my husband and other life losses.  
The Grief Recovery Method gives you a step by step interactive guide to handle your grief / loss. I provide a 1:1 online service using the Grief Recovery Method which is a scientific evidence based programme to help people heal from their loss.  
It is with my personal experience of the Grief Recovery Method that I would love to share with you, guide you and give you the correct tools in an honest and safe emotional environment where you are heard. The Time to Recover and Heal is Now! 

Over 40+ life losses can leave us feeling bereft 

When we think of bereavement, we usually think of the death of a loved one. Most people looking for bereavement counselling or a grief coach only feel entitled to do so if someone close to them has died. 
However there are over 40 different personal losses that can leave us feeling devastated, heartbroken, lost, hopeless and ultimately cause the same emotional and physical symptoms of grief.  
The Grief Recovery Method is unique in that it is applicable to any and all kinds of loss. Each Certified Grief Recovery Specialist has been trained to guide grievers without judgement, criticism or analysis. We do not compare losses and we know that every griever is unique. 
Not only can the action steps within the Grief Recovery Method be applied to any type of loss, they can be used again and again with any future losses that occur - once you have participated in a Programme, you will have all the tools you need to cope with loss later in life. 
Death of a loved one 
Divorce, separation, breakup 
Estrangement of family members 
Abusive or absent parent 
Loss of safety due to trauma 
Death of a pet 
Retirement, empty nest 
Loss of health 
Loss of finances 
Loss of faith 
Loss of career 
Loss of identity 

Evidence Based 

The Grief Recovery Method is the only evidence-based grief programme in the world. Research published in peer-reviewed journals has shown that it makes a measurable, positive difference in people's grief journey.
