“I just wanted to send you a brief message to say how much I am appreciating your self-care course. It is perfect and just what I need right now. I love your manner…. It’s just like we’re having a conversation and it’s truly amazing – you’ve had me laughing and crying and smiling and weeping and “getting it” as I’ve gone through the first 4 modules. …just wanted to let you know how precious your gift is to me right now and that it’s working!” - Sheryl

Life after a death – helping you start to heal from grief.
The death of someone you love can be one of the hardest, most painful things you ever go through.
You might be feeling like this will never end. You might be feeling that there is nothing you can do to feel better. Part of you may not even want to feel better.
But you do not have to stay like this forever.
Your first Christmas since the death of someone you love can be a real toughie. I remember my first Christmas after the 6 deaths in my family over the previous few months. Basically we didn’t give a damn about Christmas and wished the whole thing would just p*** off. We went through the motions of the family Christmas as we thought we ought to. It felt empty and wrong and I drank too much, smiled too little, and didn’t feel one bit grateful for who was with me and what we had that day.
If only I knew then what I know now. Your first Christmas since the death of someone you love doesn’t have to be an awful day that you wish you could just sleep through. It can still be a celebration. It should still be a celebration.
