We have lived through those first critical years after the death of our partner and we made it through. But our grief is still there. It may not be as active as it once was, but it still lurks in the background of our everyday life.  Learn new ways to cope with the current format of loss, gain an understanding of it, and reflect on the past, present and future.

It’s been five years.  It’s been seven years. It’s been ten years. Or it’s been MORE than ten years.  The struggle has changed because life has continued.  You have your own expectations, as do others, that you should be somewhere?  Let’s talk about where that somewhere should be. For you.

We will have a conversation about what grief looks like over the years; sharing real life experiences and talking about what has helped.  What do our lives looks like now, how do we move through our loss after everything changed so dramatically from THAT moment on? We will explore areas that connect with your loss, both old and new.  Partners, children, parents, in-laws, friendships, they all come with their own expectation of where we think we should be, yet everyone’s journey is so unique.

I’m looking forward to helping you with your widowed life - past, present and future.
