Surviving Bereavement Seminars – Life after Loss

I just wanted to share my new project with you.

Following the release of my book last year I began receiving lots of requests for advice on surviving bereavement. I am very fortunate to have met some amazing ladies through the Ladies First Professional Development Network who have agreed to work with me to provide both practical and emotional support. We have guest speakers for each seminar together with information and contact details of local Counselling Services, meet up groups and general information. We will also have time to talk and refreshments.

The new website is and has full details of what we offer and a link to book onto our seminars and our free memory box services for children.

Who we can help:

  • Anyone who has lost a loved one
  • Anyone supporting someone through bereavement
  • Anyone supporting a loved one through terminal illness

Our first seminar was on 2nd September at The Arden Hotel, Stratford upon Avon. Our guest speaker was Rachel Ollerenshaw (Molly Olly’s Wishes) and winner of a Pride of Britain Award 2019, and we received some great feedback.

Our next seminar dates are 11th October at The Lake at Barston, from 10am to 1pm, guest speaker TBC, and 12th November at The Pavilion, Nailcote Hall, Berkswell, from 6pm to 9pm, guest speaker TBC.

Anyone wishing to advertise on our website and/or through our seminars should email me directly at
