How I can help you 

Are you feeling weighed down by your loss, unable to fully function, or just feel life could be better? 
 
I can help you deal with all your losses, both past and present. Grief can also be due to many other losses including loss of trust. 
 
I came across the Grief Recovery Method after an accumulation of losses over a decade, cancer at a young age, culminating in the loss of my mother, shortly followed by divorce, pet loss and a house move. I have also experienced loss through suicide and witnessed first-hand the effects this can have on those left behind. The Greif Recovery Method helped me to recover from this accumulation of losses by helping me to deliver all the unfinished communications. This has allowed me to feel a sense of peace and move on with my life. 
 
I have been a Registered General Nurse for many years and during that time have worked on oncology wards, in a hospice, Intensive Care as well as Emergency department nurse. I have witnessed and been privileged to be at the bedside of many dying patients. Losses can be both sudden and expected, young and old. Everyone’s loss is different, only you know how you feel. 
 
I offer one to one sessions or online sessions. Please call me for a free chat, to see how I can help you. 

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.

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.  
 

Testimonials  “I undertook the Grief Recovery Method programme, with Caroline as my grief recovery specialist, following the death of my husband 3 months earlier. I hoped it would help me to come to terms with my loss and the immense grief I felt after losing him to a terminal illness which lasted 15 months.  The course lasted 7 weeks, was very structured and there was homework after every session. Caroline was very organised and presented the course well. She was clear in her explanations and able to answer my questions during our sessions together. She helped me to understand what the course was about and how it was helping me in my quest to ease my grief. The homework was very thought provoking and I was encouraged to think deeply about situations that had occurred in my life, and about the highs and lows of my relationship with my husband during our time together. Caroline gave me examples to enable me to understand the tasks given to me as we worked through the programme book. She showed empathy and understanding of my situation, always listened to what I had to say and always encouraged me to speak my mind.  Having completed the programme, I feel better able to carry on my day to day life and would recommend it to anyone with unresolved grief, whatever that grief may be from. The memories I have of my husband will never leave me and I never want them to, but I can remember now with more fondness and less sadness then before.  SC Cheltenham

Helping Children with Loss 

Helping Children with Loss
In addition to Grief Recovery Method programmes for grievers, I also offer courses for adults - parents, teachers and professionals - who would like to be better equipped to help the children in their care cope with losses of any kind. 
 
The ACEs-informed Helping Children with Loss programme uses the same principles of the evidence-based Grief Recovery Method but adapts them for use with children of all ages and ability level.
