I instantly felt comfortable with Jane, as if she already knew me! She brought fun, lightness and encouragement to our sessions and I came away from them feeling energised and with a renewed sense of self-belief. She shared many tools and techniques to raise my self-awareness and to help me manage my time more efficiently. She also explained my DISC profile in detail and was spot on with her many insights. She helped me to realise my strengths and achievements and acknowledge myself for them, rather than disregard them as is my usual pattern, bolstering my self-esteem. She showed me that I don’t need to change who I am to become successful but more how I can build on who I already am to get the success I know I can achieve.

Dealing with unresolved grief

Grief is a natural human response to losing someone or something.

Grief can be associated with death of a loved one and may be human or animal (sometimes the love we have for pets may transcend the love we have for people).

Grief may also be associated with losing a position in society. For example; retirement, retrenchment or redundancy.  The feelings of shock, denial, anger and resentment are equally as strong as losing a loved one.

There is no “right time” to stop grieving. Grief can occur over many years and it is up to the individual to decide when the act of grieving is no longer resourceful or sustainable. 

Often, the greatest barrier to releasing unresolved grief is the assumption that the intensity of grief is proportionate to the love felt for the individual or situation.

During a Life Coaching Intensive the main aim is to release the grief with great compassion and gentleness and replace it with love and gratitude for the person/situation. This allows you to reconnect with the deep love and gratitude felt before the grief and to release the strong emotional response of sadness and regret.
