Grief and Bereavement 

Finding Your Peace

White rose

During our lifetime, we all experience loss in various forms

Whether it be a, friend, family member. or a beloved pet

It's a part of my life too. I've lost pets, friends and family members

You are not alone in this 

 

​Remember also , Grief and loss is not just about people and pets

It includes,  the loss of relationships, jobs and other changes in our lives

Which can have exactly the same impact

 

As an Holistic therapist,  I've been helping my clients with their holistic health and well being

Not just spiritually,  but mentally and emotionally too
And through this, Bereavement Counselling has played a big part

Talking about Grief and loss is very emotional

Its personal to you and you alone​

Maybe you feel like a burden to your friends or family, when talking

Maybe they don't understand 

​Let me assure you

I'm here to listen and support you

The Right Words

As we all know, it's difficult to find the right words to say, especially at a time of sadness and loss

So how should you send your condolences?

Well, that's not an easy question to answer.

But it really is important,  to let the bereaved know, 

how much you care

It truly does, offer comfort at such a heartbreaking time. And when it comes from the heart, it's even more profound

Because sometimes, "sorry for your loss" isn't enough

With this in mind, here are some quotes and messages you can use

Either copy them as they are or change them to sound more like you

Adapt them, to include your memories or stories of the person who has passed away

Don't forget to add  family members names and also the name of the deceased

So im not going to wish you a happy New Year, as much as id like to . But to give you my love and hugs
