Loss and bereavement

Caring, thoughtful, Oxfordshire-based therapy to help you overcome loss and bereavement

If you’ve found this page because you’re grieving for someone you loved then may I begin by offering you my deepest, heartfelt sympathy. Death is the tragic downside of loving someone, whether it’s a person or a pet. And even if you’ve had the misfortune to have been through this many times before it can still leave you desperately floundering, not knowing what to do, crawling through dark days.

When someone’s bereaved it often seems that at first there’s a lot of support around but as the following days turn into weeks and then months it can feel as if you’re expected to have got over it. People stop asking how you are or they may feel afraid to mention the person you’ve lost in case they upset you.

But this can leave a huge hole of loneliness, in some ways as hard to cope with as the days after your loss. Sometimes too it’s easy to feel stuck in one of the ‘stages’ of grief. Maybe the anger at being left is over-shadowing you or you’re still in denial or weighed down with guilt.

Whatever stage you’re at, if you feel you just don’t know how to move forward, this may be the time to have help. I know how it feels, having crawled through many of those dark days myself. And, however impossible it seems, I know that the light can begin again to embrace your life and return you to a state of peace.

From a professional point of view I understand how our brains work and how pain and grief can begin to be eased with the gentle combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and psychotherapy. Together we can find your way forward.

What people say

“ For five years I made attempts to sort it out but every time I came near anything to do with my beloved mum I would find it too upsetting and stop. That’s when Pippa came to my rescue – without her amazing help and encouragement there would still be a mountain of clutter under my stairs and in my hallway.”

Is this for you?

Do you have a sense of being held still in grief and can’t see a way through it?
Are others expecting that you should be getting on with your life and you no longer want to bother them with how you feel?
Does the pain of the person or pet who has died still hurt just as much as when they left, even though time has marched on?
Are you feeling swamped with guilt or anger?
Or is there still a sense of denial and that any moment they’ll walk back through the door?
If any of these, or more, are how you are feeling then a helping hand is needed. Someone who understands, without judgement, and can guide you into a better space in your heart and thoughts.
