Loss & Bereavement


I believe that many issues we struggle with stem from a loss, loss can and does cause a fluctuation of emotions that feel impossible to manage and like they are encompassing all of you and all of your life. Loss can derive from a multitude of experiences, such as:

Loss of relationship or loved one


Loss of trust

Loss of control

Loss of health, ability, independence

Loss of job, career, income, status, responsibility, position.

Loss of a dream

Trapped potential.

I provide 1-1 bereavement care to help individuals understand and share their grief. I offer space to find a way to manage grief where a future means living and remembering their lost loved one in a way that is healthy and positive. I am available to support people with recent bereavement or unresolved loss from years ago. Compassionate care which respects the privacy and dignity is offered where you are included and lead your own expression of grief.

Fear has the potential to limit and to lessen the ability to participate fully in one’s

life. If fear is left unchecked, the resulting dependency can result in irrationality and the

loss of autonomy. Fear can also cause the loss of relationships and connections through

the isolation that fear-based decisions often create. 

Thinking about counselling ?

I can offer solace within this time of your life and assist you in the journey of making some sense of it all.
