Have you had a bereavement, or suffered a loss, that’s left you feeling lost?
I’m here to support you after the death of someone close, or another loss in your life, has left you in a state of grief. Grief is an entirely natural process and I know it can feel devastating and painful.
Having had lived experience of bereavement and loss, I understand the difficult journey you find yourself on. Every experience of grief is unique; there are no rules, no normal way to be, and there isn’t a timeline for healing. Yet a bereavement and some other forms of loss are the most stressful life events we can be faced with.
You may find yourself struggling with things like:
Feeling like you’ve lost ‘normality’ and what once was
Shock and coming to terms with your loss
Pain and not knowing how to be with it
Feeling lost yourself after things have settled
Feeling like you’ve lost your sparkle or zest for life
An overwhelming range of emotions that differs every day
Guilt due to circumstances surrounding your loss
Depression and feeling stuck in your grief
A sense of longing to see or hear your loved one
Difficulties in dealing with reactions of family members and others
My blogs, newsletter, podcast and other resources will give you stacks of tips and helpful information on grief and loss. There are many things you can do to help yourself through this process. However, there may also be a need for you to seek confidential, one-to-one support. I can help with this too.
It’s important to recognise when you need some support. It’s even more important that you don’t isolate yourself or try to “keep a lid” on your how you’re feeling. There is no need to feel guilty or like you’re failing. Asking for help is a strength. I’m here to listen and hold space for whatever you need.
Social distancing hugs: pandemic support
As a result of COVID-19, we have been faced with tragic loss of life and have been left finding ways to grieve under very challenging circumstances. If you have been bereaved yourself whether as a direct result of Coronavirus or not, you may be feeling isolated and unable to engage with your usual support network.
I have created flexibility within my existing one-to-one support services, as well as some additional options for those who have been impacted financially. Please ask for details. I will be adding to this information as and when the situation changes.
Why choose to work with me one-to-one?
I’d love for you to get to know me a little better and understand why I chose to specialise in bereavement, grief and loss.
I’ll share with you my story and own experiences of loss – sadly, there’s more than one.
Of course, this is also the part where I talk about how well qualified I am and my professional background. This is to reassure you that I’ve taken my training and on-going development seriously. More importantly, I want you to get to get a sense of who I am, and whether you’d like to explore working together.

It is not uncommon for people to question whether they - or someone they know - is depressed after a bereavement or significant loss. For most people, the emotional, psychological and physical symptoms experienced after a death can be attributed to normal...
It’s easy to make the mistake of thinking that grief is purely emotional. Normal grief is a complex and multifaceted response to painful loss, bereavement or a traumatic event. Aside from the emotional response, it can also affect us in the following ways:...
Losing somebody you are close to is possibly the most devastating and painful experience ever. The intensity and unpredictable nature of grief is the part that people are most surprised by. This can feel overwhelming. People have all sorts of descriptions...
