Healing the Heartbreak when
Dealing with Grief

This site is dedicated to acknowledging your heartache and sadness when dealing with grief and loss after the death of a significant person in your life. The grief support information is offered to help you in dealing with grief through this tough time.

I am sorry for the pain and sadness that you may be feeling at this moment. As I too have experienced great trauma, loss and sadness I would like to share with you some of the information, options and strategies that have helped me and many others in coping with grief to survive and to eventually adjust after the death of our loved ones.

Can you relate to particular emotions and feelings? Do you feel stuck and overwhelmed by your grief? Is the idea of grief counseling or support groups something you have tried or might like to find out more about? Have you thought about holistic and complimentary therapies? Do you find support in poems, music, books, family, friends or perhaps a massage? Can you talk about your pain with someone who is close to you? Have you been introduced to some of the wonderful aromas of pure essential oils and aromatherapy? These are just a few of the strategies we are going to look at. I also encourage you to tap into the activities that have previously given you a sense of purpose, joy, peace and love in your life. Use these to help your grief recovery.

I invite you to take whatever you feel comfortable with to help you in dealing with grief and to revisit Grief-Healing-Support.com from time to time as we both continue to develop and as you are ready to try something else that may help and support you in your healing.

The information in this site does not take the place of professional support. Please seek out appropriate professional help when you need it. You will know when that is.

May you find a place of peace and joy.
