Over the last ten years when I have struggled with vocalising my grief and finding empathy from those around me, I have found comfort and support in the written word, whether in writing or in reading. I would urge you to do the same.

Here you will find a collection of books that continue to give me hope and strength during dark times.

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig 

An eye opening and moving memoir about the raw truths of someone struggling with mental health and how, against all odds, he finds meaning in his life.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

This heartbreaking an heart warming account of a dying mans quest to find the value in his life. One of the most courageous and life changing books I have ever come across.

It’s Ok That You’re Not Ok by Megan Devine

Megan’s harrowing and traumatic experience of witnessing her husband drown has led to her challenging the way our society views grief and loss. Her unique and insightful book is full of life experience, professional insight and mindfulness practices. I always have this book within reach and turn to it for words of wisdom on a regular basis.

Grief Works by Julia Samuel 

Julia pours all the knowledge and insight she has gained from her 25-year career as a grief psychotherapist into this wonderful book. She draws on observations of several of her clients to encourage openness about death and loss.
