How I can help you
Dealing with a significant loss is something we all experience. There are many losses in life, death, end of a relationship/marriage, loss of a job, loss of health, miscarriage, fertility and loss faith in life. The GRM programme is an evidence-informed, practice-based program that has been shown to effectively influence components of grief and grief recovery. After completion of the program, the most frequently reported coping behaviours that respondents were less likely to engage in were nicotine use, smoking, misuse of prescriptions drugs, illicit drug use, overeating, alcohol abuse, and gambling.
Our grieving and heartbreak are multi layered and is prolonged due to unresolved emotions, loss of hopes, dreams and expectations. After losing my mother in 2011 and my father a little under three years later, I went searching for support but found typical counselling sessions helped for a while, only to find myself still feeling heartbroken months later.
Thankfully, I discovered the Grief Recovery Method and it enabled me to come to terms with my losses and to find meaning and fulfilment in life again. The Grief Recovery Method is a toolkit that supports healing long-term, and I can now help you.
As well as GRM Specialist, I am the Founder of yugen connections, a Workplace Wellbeing & Resilience Consultancy providing expert advice, wellbeing and resilience psychometric assessments, 1:1 coaching and leadership workshops.
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

First Mother’s Day without Mum
Last July, just as I’d pitched up a tent in a field in Cornwall, I got a devastating call from my mum’s friend to say that she’d started coughing up blood not long after we’d left home and had been taken by ambulance to hospital. She didn’t want to worry us. The next day, we learned she had terminal lung cancer that had spread.
