How I can help you 

Heartache is devastating for all concerned no matter why or what the cause. Whether you’ve experienced the death of a partner, a divorce or any other type of relationship breakdown the chances are you’ve been left reeling, feeling lost, alone, angry, directionless and questioning your life and yourself. 
 
Where on earth do you start to pick up the pieces? Is it even possible to let go of the pain and start again? From personal experience I can tell you yes, it is possible. When my world caved in, I questioned whether I could ever be happy again. Looking back, I can see now how I went into automatic pilot - I got up, went to work, came home, went to bed – day after day. On the outside I smiled and looked alive, but on the inside, I was dying. 
 
My personal journey back to me has taken many twists and turns which culminated in creating my own business. Becoming a Grief Recovery Specialist in 2017 was a part of this process. I completed the Advanced training in 2019 because I wanted to help more men and women who were in pain after heartbreak to find fulfilment and joy again. It would be my honour and privilege to assist you in following the Grief Recovery Method Program. I work with clients one-to-one online or in person from Telford, Shropshire. 
 
If you would like to book a no obligation chat to find out more and see if I’m the Specialist for you then please get in touch. It’s always best to make an informed decision.

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
