I can help you with:

  • Parental bereavement

  • Physical symptoms of grief

  • Estrangement

Grief, however you experience it, is a normal and natural feeling. You should never pretend to be 'ok' or accept that 'ok' is enough, because we can all experience peace and joy in our lives once the emotional baggage we drag around is acknowledged and removed.


Since my lovely mum died in 2016, I have wanted to help others with their grief. When I made the connection between grief and the debilitating physical symptoms and illness I experienced during the first 12 months following mum's death, I realised how important it is to overcome the challenges of negative emotions. But I didn't know how.


For almost four years I just existed, with emotions that prevented me from functioning fully, whilst experiencing the last stages of menopause and fighting my feelings relating to a family estrangement. Regret and what I thought was guilt were eating away at me. I imagined my partner was going to die suddenly in his sleep, so I struggled to sleep and get up in the mornings. Addicted to comfort food, I put on two stones. I kept busy and thought that eventually time would heal me, because that is what we are told.


It wasn't until I found the Grief Recovery Method that I understood - it isn't time that heals, it's what you do with that time. The method helped me to be completely honest with myself, I understood I had put my mum ‘on a pedestal’ after her death, remembering only difficult memories and making myself believe I was an inadequate daughter.


After working on my first two losses, the negative conversations in my head ceased and my doubts and fears fluttered away, replaced by peace and a feeling of true joy for life that I hadn't felt since I was a child. I felt unblocked, mentally and spiritually. I lost weight, became a year-round cold water swimmer and found peace in meditation. I no longer feared future loss and I could finally move forward.


The Grief Recovery Method has taught me to listen and I will always listen to you without any judgement whatsoever. I will help you to understand that we will always miss our loved ones but we don’t have to grieve with pain, and we must not leave unfinished emotions to negatively affect our lives, or cause physical pain and illness.
