Julia Pitkin 
At 26 years old my son and I were separated when, without a word, my estranged husband decided to return to his native country and take our son with him. Although he was returned safely to me the searching and longing was horrendous. It was too painful for anyone to talk about, so I buried my experiences and my feelings, then a series of subsequent losses hit me hard and I wondered why I couldn’t seem to cope with life very well. 
As a freelance occupational therapist I specialised in the loss experienced by a person and their family after a diagnosis of dementia. I explored further and became a Grief Recovery Specialist. When I did this training I did not anticipate how much it would help me come to terms with and to complete the losses of my past. I now deliver Grief Recovery programmes; helping others in my community to rebuild their lives. 
At Grief Recovery (UK) we recognise that grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss whether that loss has been brought about by a death, the end of a relationship, loss of health or job. We experience many losses throughout our lives and ‘pull ourselves together’ until a final loss seems to totally overwhelm us - this is when we need help and support. 
I have worked alongside many clients with success and believe the programme will always remain a resource to the person who completes it. If you are local to Shropshire or North Herefordshire and you feel you need grief support please contact me.

What is The Grief Recovery Method? 

How we're different to Cruse 

Grief Recovery Blog 

  • Are you drinking too much?
    We’re all human, so we deal with feelings of discomfort in the way we know how. We’re not telling you to feel bad about your drinking behaviour – it’s important right now that we be patient and compassionate with ourselves.
  • Grieving the loss of a pet
    Have you ever lost a pet and found that you’ve grieved in silence?
  • Anticipating the Death of a Loved One
    Grief is usually associated with the experience of loss, but anticipatory grief can start as soon as you become aware that death is on the cards. Once death is even just a possibility, it wouldn’t be unusual to start grieving.
