Now that you know what I can offer you, it’s only fair that I tell you something about me. The UK has a large number of counsellors who combine bereavement counselling with their other counselling work, but I am one of the few who works solely with those experiencing bereavement and loss and doing so from a spiritual perspective.
My objective is not only to put you back on your feet – to lessen you’re suffering – but to change your life in very powerful ways.
What makes it possible for me to do those things?
Simple: I’ve been bereaved, too.
I worked for nearly twenty years in personal development, counselling and therapy but it was the sheer pain and trauma of losing my daughter, Alexx when she was 24 years old. Alexx being my only child I’ve also experienced the loss of being a mum, being a grandparent being able to enjoy all the other milestones that come with having children.
Yet through the tears, the heartache, the heartbreak and the darkness there has also been a great deal of healing and positivity. I have also grown in many ways as a result of my experience. I view life completely differently, I feel a deep passion to help others and I see a richness and appreciation I didn’t see before. I’ve found inner strength and qualities I didn’t know I had. I am more carefree and stressfree than ever before. I’ve fallen in love with meditation and developed a deeper self-care practice, which has made the grief easier. It’s fair to say that my own trauma, with its shades of darkness and light, has been transformational and shown me how to change my life and create a new life whilst honouring Alexx.
I know how difficult it can be. I understand what you have to go through because I’ve been through it before you. I had to work very hard to find my way to a new life. And so will you. But you’ll have me in your corner, helping you find the way.
When you experience bereavement, you want to feel better. Of course, you do. But don’t stop there.
Make this experience the catalyst for living your life that honours your loved one and what will, when the work is over, be a different and – hard as this is to believe – a life that makes you smile and makes you proud.
I work face-to-face, online and by telephone. Get in touch. Right now, you may feel that your life is over. But let me help you to see that, in fact, it could be just beginning.
