Jo Goodwin-Worton

Grief Specialist

Jo Goodwin-Worton

Hi, my name is Jo and I live in Staffordshire. Following my own personal bereavement in 2019, I retrained and qualified as a grief specialist and now feel privileged to be able to use my real-life experience and my academia to support people through a loss or bereavement. Having had first-hand experience of grief myself I know that I cannot understand completely what you are going through, however I can relate to it and use that experience to offer you the right support at a difficult time.

Grief can be overwhelming at times and it is a process which continuously evolves over time. For individuals I am able to offer you a safe and confidential space to talk and support you on that journey. For groups, I am able to offer a safe and non-judgemental space where like-minded individuals can come together to talk about their experience of grief, bereavement and/or loss gaining insight whilst offering mutual support.

I am also able to provide group talks/presentations/guest speaker services to offer guidance on the complexities of grief and understanding the nature of grief from both personal and theoretical aspects.

I am a published author of two books; Caring for Cancer the Real Journey being released in May 2022 and my second book called ‘Back to Normal?’ released in June 2023.

My first book is entitled Caring for Cancer, the Real Journey. It's my uncensored real-life journey of caring for someone with cancer and how I coped with the emotions and expectations surrounding bereavement and grief.

It is written using real thoughts and feelings and based on factual events and how, ultimately, I used those experiences to forge my way through bereavement and onto an inspirational journey of finding hope, encouragement and a renewed lust for life.

Caring for Cancer, the Real Journey can be purchased from Amazon here.

Back to Normal?

‘Back to normal?’ is a collection of inspiring stories about real people and the real lives they have led following a bereavement or loss.

How is it possible to even contemplate moving on from a specific loss or bereavement? The answer lies in each of us individually, sharing our stories and our experiences helps us to understand that we are not alone.

Back to Normal? can be purchased from Amazon here.
