Kristie West is a Grief Specialist. She work with adults who have lost a parent. She helps to take them out of grief so they can talk about, remember, and love their mum or dad without it hurting them anymore.
Losing one of your parents can be one of the most traumatic events of your life. It can be an event that you think you should just be able to deal with or suffer through as it happens to everyone, but losing your mother or father can shake your very foundations.
When you have lost your mum or dad and you seek help you usually have one of two options. Either the professional you see will keep you talking about your pain hour after hour, or they will give you ways to cope with or manage your grief.
Six years ago when I lost 6 family members in 4 months, including my dad who died very suddenly, I found that neither of these approaches truly help. They are both based on the belief that grief is more-or-less a permanent state only aided by the passing of time. Both approaches leave you in pain. And the pain means that it hurts almost every time you think about your mum or dad. Over time, keeping this pain will not ensure you remember them. It will actually ensure you forget them as it is too consistently painful to think about them. I never believed this is the best way to live or the best way to honour and remember your mum or dad. It is much easier to remember and love them if you doesn’t hurt you every time you do it.
I studied psychology, various coaching methods, personal development and spirituality, looking for answers and healing, and went on to develop the process that I now use. Using this process I help people let go of their grief and pain, without letting go of or forgetting their mum or dad.
I am known for positively changing people’s experience of the loss of their mum or dad in less than 4 hours.
I leave my clients feeling free, connected, and grateful.
I work with clients one-to-one (face-to-face, phone, skype) and run regular 1-day courses for small groups in London.
