Words cannot convey how sorry I am that you are here.
As a practising psychotherapist, a final year doctoral psychology student conducting research into suicide bereavement - and fellow suicide loss 'survivor,' I am with you every single step of the way.
More about Me
Everyone Grieves Differently
My research has helped me understand the complexity of every suicide loss.
With my own personal and professional understanding, on this website I may outline some commonalities I have heard from other suicide loss survivors.
Everything you see here is written with an openness to be corrected and deep respect for your unique experience.
How can this ever make sense?
Often we feel as if our belief system is in shatters and we are not sure how to put it back together again.
Holding it together
We appear to be managing at work and home, but can find ourselves binging on chocolate, wine or Netflix - or simply fall apart - until it all starts again the next day.
You may feel alone
It is very common to feel alone and unsupported during the aftermath of suicide. How can anyone else possibly understand what this is like?
Maybe you just have no idea where to start....
I see you
I hear you
You are not alone
Integrate 'suicide' into your life story.
Suicide loss cannot be ignored. It is too big, feels too heavy and too complicated.
There is a way forward - to know how to live with it.
How about we take a deep breath, roll up our sleeves and work together to put your belief system back together again?
As fellow suicide loss survivors who know how hard it is to live a balanced life with the differences of life before and after a suicide loss.
I am aware that it might feel like the pain will engulf you if you let it in. But I assure you it is possible to learn how to manage it whilst you continue to live your life and fulfill the other commitments you have.

Many factors can contribute to how we feel after a suicide loss. I focus on rebuilding your belief system, as I believe this is one of the most fundamental processes involved in recovering from a suicide loss. Of course, this is certainly NOT the only way to heal from grief. If you are stuck with how to process the death of a loved one to suicide, the first step is reaching out for professional help. I hope some of what I offer here helps you recognise how important your healing journey is. Please see my page of helpful resources to see what other free resources are available.
