Coping with Trauma & Grief

Welcome my friend! This section is to impart a greater understanding in the process of healing from trauma, brokenness & grief through a personal & professional perspective.

Trauma 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 with that lingering feeling of brokenness…

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

I get it!

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

Having also experienced the emotional pain of divorce in my first marriage & living with the continuing legacy that leaves behind. Presently, I live with Chronic Health conditions which has its own process of grief.

You may find both my personal & professional experience as a Mental Health care practitioner informative, inspirational & comforting.

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.
