I’m not going to lie - this review got me choked up when first reading. When you’re travelling around speaking to people about their inspirational and personal stories I tend to forget what got me to the place where I am now, and what made me want to create the podcast in the first place. I like to think that my dad walks and sits with me everyday. Part of me also believes that he whispers, ‘you can do this’, in my ear everyday. Our loved ones might be dead but their spirit lives on in everything we do.

Thank you to everyone that has listened to our episodes and for all of your kind comments. Let’s continue the conversation and break the stigma and taboo surrounding grief in the UK.

For many years, I wouldn’t talk about what happened to my dad. I locked the memories away. But I could never forget my dad’s smile, or how quickly he walked and how I struggled to keep up with him when holding his hand. I had loved spending time with him, particularly playing football or tennis. After he died, I stopped playing sport – it was too painful a reminder of the times we had spent together. The grieving process is strange. No matter how you experience it, one day you are fine and the next the grief hits you like a sledgehammer. #alwaysinmyheart #loss #grief #eachdayisagift Смотреть полностью

Father’s Day is always a bitter sweet. I used to dread the build up to the day, and it was like a sledgehammer to the gut each time I’d see an advert or an email. But when I became a father myself my outlook changed and it was something that became a day not just for me, but for the kids. For anyone out there also without a dad, let’s try and use it as an opportunity to remember their life and all the good things that they taught us. Let’s take some time to reflect and celebrate our love for them. If you know anyone that might be suffering this weekend then please share these words. Everyone’s grief is individual but our memories live on in our love for them. Have a lovely weekend, guys. x #fathersday #weekend #missyoudad #fatherhood #grief #dad Смотреть полностью

I was going to wait until announcing my forthcoming new podcast but then I thought sod it and wanted to throw it up to the stars and see what lands. I had the fear initially that there might not be enough space for a podcast with a subject matter of grief in the arena, but it quickly dawned on me that the more awareness we can generate, the more we can break the stigma & taboo surrounding this very difficult subject to help others. My main drive for the podcast is to discuss how grief has affected my guests and if it has instilled in them a desire to keep moving forward to live a positive and fulfilled life after the death of a loved one. My objective is to give young people and adults hope after listening to the conversations. The podcast is in support of Cheltenham children’s bereavement charity, Winston’s Wish and i’ll keep you all posted for the first episode release date. #griefismysuperpower #trustinyourself #believeinyourself Смотреть полностью

The devastation of grief at an early age can stay with a child for the rest of their lives, but it doesn’t have to affect their mental health. The Magical Wood was written to help open up the difficult conversation around grief and death with children. I wanted to write a book that would’ve helped me after my dad was killed. The earlier we start to introduce the conversation around death and grief in our schools, the earlier we can break the taboo in the UK. In my opinion, children should be explained to honestly what has happened, in words that they can understand. Let them see how you feel. Children learn about feelings by watching the adults around them and I always appreciated adults speaking to me about how I was feeling, giving me a space to express myself. Let’s teach our children that it’s ok to feel sad. #grief #itsgoodtotalk Смотреть полностью

Love this by @boysgetsadtoostudio Over the last year I’ve decided to make it my mission to keep talking and writing about grief to try and break the stigma surrounding death & grief in the UK.

This quote definitely resonates with my own personal mission. #boysgetsadtoo #grief #letsbreakthestigma Смотреть полностью

Creativity can be a useful tool for anyone struggling with their mental health and i’ve always found my best release when writing new stories. In my opinion, we need to teach all children how to use their imaginations to help channel their emotions. I’m sure there are lots of hidden meanings stemming back to my grief in my children’s books, but essentially they’re written as a healing and creative process for myself first.

I truly believe it’s important that all children learn from an early age that death is a natural part of life. At the beginning of 2018, I made the decision to publish my fifth children’s book, The Magical Wood, written to help bereaved children. The impact of trauma at an early age has instilled a passion in me to help children struggling with their own grief and mental health. The devastation of grief at an early age can stay with a child for the rest of their lives, but it doesn’t have to affect their mental health. The Magical Wood was written to help open up the difficult conversation around grief and death. I wanted to write a book that would’ve helped me after my dad was killed. The earlier we start to introduce the conversation around death and grief in our schools, the earlier we can break the taboo in the UK.

This week I’m starting a new project that will hopefully help lots of children, young people and adults struggling with their grief & loss. Like anything new i’m nervous, apprehensive and more importantly i’m stepping outside of my comfort zone. Over the last year I’ve realised that grief knocks people down and try’s to crush their self belief & confidence. It weighs down on you and try’s to show no light at the end of the tunnel. I believe that grief can be used for good and can be channelled with a desire to succeed in life. It is possible to stick two fingers up at grief and achieve a positive and fulfilled life and this is the message I want to pass on to others. I truly believe stepping out of your comfort zone is good for the soul and if you don’t leap, you don’t fly. 📸by @positivelysparkly #supportingbereavedchildren #grief #leapoffaith #newadventures Смотреть полностью

On the 17th October 2017 @riseofthephoenix.1 15-year-old son, Kyron, was fatally stabbed in an unprovoked attack on Worsley Avenue in Manchester. Kyron sustained a fatal stab wound to the heart, which caused him to experience two cardiac arrest. Kyron was pronounced brain dead October 20th 2017. As someone that felt the full force of knife crime as a boy, I felt an instant empathy to connect with @riseofthephoenix.1 and her family. She very kindly shared the above words regarding her young son and his grief. Please check out her page and follow her story. #grief Смотреть полностью

The impact of trauma at an early age has instilled a passion in me to help children struggling with their own grief and mental health. The devastation of grief at an early age can stay with a child for the rest of their lives, but it doesn’t have to affect their mental health. The Magical Wood was written to help open up the difficult conversation around grief and death. I wanted to write a book that would’ve helped me after my dad was killed. The earlier we start to introduce the conversation around death and grief in our schools, the earlier we can break the taboo in the UK. In my opinion, children should be explained to honestly what has happened, in words that they can understand. Let them see how you feel. Children learn about feelings by watching the adults around them and I always appreciated adults speaking to me about how I was feeling, giving me a space to express myself. I also remember thinking that somehow, my father’s death was perhaps my fault. A ridiculous thought now. So often, children need to be reassured that it was nothing they did, said or thought that made this happen. I want all children struggling with grief to know that, although you will always miss that special person, you can go on to live a positive life after the death of a loved one. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #grief #supportingbereavedchildren #mentalhealthweek2019 📸 by @emilygrayphoto Смотреть полностью
