Reviews and Praise for Joy Sackett Wood
Testimonial for Joy’s Grief Counselling / Coaching
“Before I started my sessions with Joy, I really felt that there was no future at all. Even though I have my children I just couldn’t ever see that I could be happy or enjoy life again. I remember thinking That counselling might help me to “get over “the sudden loss of my husband.
I have never experienced such terrible grief before so it was a learning curve for me. I know now that you never “get over it “, but you learn to live and cope with the new situation. I have learnt so much from the Grief Curve and the effects that it has in the Brain. Understanding this has really helped me to heal.
When it first happened, I felt as though I had been dropped in a huge Black Sea with nothing to hold on to. I relied on my husband for a lot of things and really felt totally helpless. After having weekly sessions with Joy and gradually reducing to fortnightly, I have learned that I can manage ok and I don’t feel that Black Sea feeling anymore.
I have done a lot of home improvements which has helped and even taken the children away in holiday which was a big mountain to climb. I actually enjoyed Christmas this year surrounded by my family but I really felt that I would never enjoy again.
My sessions have taught me to accept my situation and live as a family of three instead of four. I dreaded that thought at first but I have learnt that acceptance is a big step.
I have a long way to go and life will never be the same but I am learning all the time. There are triggers all the time and down days but they have become less. I no longer feel guilty for laughing or smiling.
