How I can help you
Have you experienced loss in your life? Are you struggling with ongoing pain and heartache, keeping you from living your life to the full? Let me gently guide you through the Grief Recovery Method, the step-by-step, action based program, that will heal your wounded heart, so you can feel at peace and love life again. Along the way you’ll gain the insight and ability to recover from the losses, transitions and endings that are an integral part of life and the confidence to respond compassionately to others in their grief.
Hello, my name is Sam Demmon and I’m an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist, delivering 1:1 Grief Recovery programs online. I’m also a griever...when my friend died suddenly I couldn’t speak about her, there was so much pain, guilt, regret and sorrow in my heart. Taking the steps of Grief Recovery I felt the healing power of this extraordinarily profound program. Being able to remember my friend, with sadness, yes, and also with love and peace and joy, and to bring her back into my life without the pain that had been there... I am grateful beyond words. I learnt too that grief goes beyond bereavement, so much of the grief in my heart was in response to life-altering emotional loss. With the tools of Grief Recovery, I’ve been able to gradually reclaim the lost pieces of my heart, giving me the courage to live life more fully.
If you are yearning for peace with the losses in your past, so you can love your life again, book a call with me to explore working together.

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
Testimonials “Yes! I was broken hearted and Yes! I had lost someone I loved. Before the Grief Recovery Method felt I had no purpose in life, after meeting Sam and doing the program I feel a weight has lifted, I do not have the same feelings that I did before and I am able to process things more clearly and with ease without the negative emotions impact it was having on me.” HB, Bristol “Because of Sam’s huge heart and immense skill set I was able to fully engage with the program and reap the rewards that commitment deliver. In the months since completing this subtle yet powerful program I’ve noticed a peace settle within me, freeing up so much of my energy and time, giving me the gift of being able to be in and even enjoy...present moments.” Jodie, Melbourne Australia

Because our hearts matter
Posted on 3rd April 2020 at 04:42
We need our hearts, not just in the physical sense, in an emotional sense we need our hearts.  We need our hearts, to love, to be kind, to have compassion and to care.  Our hearts are our relational centre.
