Understanding Grief

Welcome! This section is to give a greater understanding to grief & its complexities through a personal & professional perspective.

Grief can come to us through many circumstances in life;

  • Through the diagnosis of a terminal illness.
  • The death of a loved one.
  • The birth & ongoing care of a special needs child.
  • The loss of long term relationships.
  • Betrayal.
  • Abuse.
  • Rejection.
  • Financial collapse.
  • Natural disasters
  • Career loss
  • Chronic health conditions.

What ever the cause, we find ourselves grieving for who or what we have lost & for what we thought the future held before our loss…

This emotional pain can be very raw, in fact so raw we feel extremely fragile, distraught, crushed & broken.

I do empathize as I too have experienced this agonizing pain dear friend. I have lost two of my children, my daughter Candy & my son Benjamin within twelve months of each other & then my dear husband to brain cancer.

I have also experienced the pain of divorce in my first marriage with the continuing legacy that leaves. And presently I live with Chronic Health conditions which has its own grief.

You may find both my personal & professional experience, as one who has traveled this path of grief as a Mental Health care practitioner informative & inspirational.

Please grab yourself a hot cuppa, get comfy & join me in the following reflections…

You’re most welcome to join me in a cuppa anytime my dear friend at my HOME page.
