Grief Support

Grief is our emotional response to loss and should not be discounted. It can be an extremely intense and painful process affecting our ability to cope with everyday life. Everyone’s experience of grief is personal and unique. You may wish to talk to someone who understands these emotions and who can offer sound advice.

Below are just a few qualified resources we can recommend.

I understand the anguish of losing a pet from personal experience and at the same time regularly work with people experiencing bereavement and associated grief.

I am happy to be of assistance for those who may be experiencing the loss of a loved one.
