Support to transform significant losses into life's wisdom
Death, divorce, family discord, ill health, financial issues, children leaving home, retirement, loss of trust, loss of faith,
...all are normal and natural parts of life. Yet many of us don’t have the tools that transform significant losses into life’s wisdom.
Instead we become expert at pretending all is well. Unprocessed grief and loss has a habit of negatively impacting our life, both now and in the future. It can affect our health and our ability to experience happiness and joy. Unprocessed loss can have far-reaching effects on key relationships – our families, children and friends – as well as our interactions at work.
“There are two types of Pain in this world: Pain that
hurts you, and Pain that changes you.” Anon
What are the aims of Life Beyond Loss?
To support and educate you on the painful, yet natural process of loss and grief
To address and resolve incomplete issues around your loss
Week by week it follows a tried and tested structure
Actions enable you to move on from emotional pain, and be free of past regrets
Keep your happy memories, without being defined by sad ones
By acknowledging loss and grief in healthy ways, you help your family better respond to life’s challenges.
“Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where
any bend may reveal a totally new landscape.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
