How I can help you 

Hello, I am Danielle Burnett, Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist based in Gillingham, Kent. I have worked as a registered Midwife since 2007 and have been a specialist Bereavement Support Midwife since 2016. It is my work as a bereavement midwife which led to my completion of the training to become a Grief Recovery Specialist in September 2020 and the Advanced Specialist training in October 2020.  
 
Bereavement care has been a passion for many years and in my work as a midwife I have cared for 100's of families who have experienced the grief of the loss of a baby at any point in their pregnancy or the neonatal period. It has often struck me how the loss of a baby creates a ripple effect of grief which can impact not just the parents and immediate family, but also the wider support network of friends and colleagues. People often don't know how to support and help and I regularly encounter families who are heartbroken and feeling 'stuck' in their loss.  
 
When I attended the Grief Recovery Specialist training I didn't think of myself as a griever, however what I discovered was that grief has many different forms (over 40!) and that although I am fortunate to not have experienced grief in the form of death, I have encountered a huge amount of grief in several other aspects of my life. 
 
The Grief Recovery Method has taught me the invaluable skill of seeing grief in a new way, as the normal and natural reaction to a change or loss of any kind. I am able to deliver the method in one-to-one or group format in person and online via Zoom. I am also able to provide the Helping Children with Loss and Pet Loss programmes.  
 
In undertaking one of the Grief Recovery Method programmes with me I will teach you how to overcome and step away from the ‘what if’s’ and ‘if only’s’ of loss that keep you in the constant cycle of pain. Instead I will help you work towards developing a set of skills that can be used for life to allow you to step away from the pain of your loss and towards the healing of your broken heart.  
 
Please get in touch with me to find out more. There is no commitment required, just an opportunity to explore if the Grief Recovery Method could be the right thing to help you take the first step towards healing. 

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.

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.
