How I can help you 

My name is Maxine Bryce, I’m based in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire. 
 
In the last 20 years, I’ve helped thousands of people recover from childhood trauma, abandonment, betrayal, loss of love and other painful experiences that affected their ability to feel safe, to be at ease, to feel happy or to be fully engaged in anything. 
 
If you have lost your trust in life, I can help you get it back. 
 
A series of crushing losses including the abandonment by my father, losing everything in a fire on a ship, thousands of miles from home, I was held hostage in a war-zone in the Middle East for months, and injuries forced the loss of my career I loved in dance. 
 
This lead me to exist in a permanent state of Fight - Flight or Freeze. 
 
My experiences, gave me valuable insight for helping others release emotional pain, anxiety etc. but deep down, I realised there was still something missing that prevented me from living life fully. 
 
I heard about the Grief Recovery Programme from a friend and decided to investigate for myself. I was so impressed to learn that this is the only Evidence Based programme in the world. I decided to sign up for the training. 
 
During the programme I uncovered and resolved issues I had considered were done, that were actually still affecting every decision I made. I’m so excited to share this programme and it’s results with you. 
 
Call or email me to arrange a confidential chat to find out more and to see if this programme is right for you. 
 
I look forward to being able to help you get the changes you want, wherever you are in the world. Maxine. 

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.
