Bereavement Support

“Victoria provides a wonderful non judgemental space. Art therapy has been an amazingly uplifting experience for me”

,,Bereavement is as unique to you as you are unique to the world.

The most important thing to do at every stage of bereavement is to take care of you. I will encourage you to explore ways in which you can be kind to yourself in order to process your own grief and to help those around you in that process too.

My experience as an Art Therapist, working with clients and families affected by grief and loss alongside my own personal experience of bereavement enables me to help you by providing a safe and confidential space to explore your situation and support you to live positively, with hope at any stage of bereavement.

The death of someone close can be shattering. Everyone experiences grief differently; there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. How we react will be influenced by many different things, including our age and personality, our cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.

After a death you may initially feel shocked, numb, guilty, angry, afraid and full of pain. These feelings may change to feelings of longing, sadness, loneliness − even hopelessness and fear about the future. These feelings are not unnatural, or wrong. They are all ‘normal’ reactions to what may be the most difficult experience of your life.

I hope that with time and space therapeutic support will lessen these overwhelming feelings allowing you to find a place for your loss which allows you to live your life full of hope and happiness.

I work with adults individually and in groups.

I work with children individually and in groups.

I work with parents providing advice and strategies to help them support their children. 

“Meeting Victoria has been absolutely invaluable for me as I work through various emotions and concerns in my role as a mother to two young children experiencing the death of their father.

I felt totally clueless but Victoria has time and time again given me amazing advice, reassured me that my children are doing ok and highlighted ways of helping them when they are not”
