Louise Creswick, Accredited Grief & Loss Coach, NLP Practitioner and Mindfulness Teacher
Loss is one of the toughest things you will face in your life, and grief is one of the most intense experiences to live through. I'm passionate about helping you to navigate the, often complex, grief journey and when ready, find your new normal, as well as adjust to life beyond loss. I am here to walk the journey alongside you and offer the support you need, every step of the way.
Whilst grief is unique, I have been through my own painful losses and understand the emotional pain, turmoil, confusion and physical challenges that loss can bring.
I combine my specialist skills, knowledge and experience to work in a compassionate and empathetic way because I understand it is important is for you to have somebody who will listen to what you need. I will help you, like I've helped many others, to gently transition from surviving to thriving in your own way, at your own pace.
When it comes to our sessions, I care about being fully present and immersed in our work together. I'm highly intuitive and will know when you've hit a wall, start to struggle or need to change the pace. Equally, I will give you gentle nudges when required. That's how I roll. I also want you to smile and enjoy our work together - it's okay to have some relief from your grief, right?
We will work with my personalised resources, tools and techniques to navigate your grief, adjust to your loss and embrace healing. You'll learn how to start working with your grief and stop battling against it.
