'this too will pass' is a free series of 7 inspirational messages carefully chosen to support, comfort and inspire.

Grieving is hard. I understand that.

Grieving can be an untidy process. We go two steps forward only to find ourselves suddenly hurtled back by a comment, a look, a sound, or a memory. It takes very little, especially in those tender early months. If that's you, or somebody close, then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Using the memory of my own zig-zag journey toward resolution and acceptance I've created a series of seven thematically linked emails. They're messages of hope based around the quotations and verses that gave me pause to breathe and helped me through.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and answers to help you decide whether 'this too will pass' will provide the type of bereavement support you need by telling you more about it.

  1. Who is this course best suited for?
    It's been written for people who are coming to terms with the death of someone close to them. However it is not intended to be the primary or first support a person receives when they are in the very beginning stages of grieving. In those first few days the comfort of close friends and family are paramount. A course like 'this too will pass' may be a useful supplement but it can never replace the warm physical presence and reassurance of loving, caring people.
