Grief & Loss support

You are grieving a beloved one or something significant to you in life and would like to understand more and connect with your feelings of grief and loss? As a certified grief educator I offer you companionship, information and tools to support you in navigating the often unknown fields of grief and loss.

Loss moves in and out of our lives in big and small ways. We experience grief when we lose our loved ones, but you also might experience it when you lose your job, your relationship, your dreams, your house. You might experience a sense of loss with your changing or aging body, with the transition into motherhood or fatherhood, with your sense of safety, with your changing experience of the world. Loss is unavoidable and universal.

And there is no one way to grief. Grief shows itself in many different shapes, colors, moods, feelings, emotions, thoughts and actions. It is as unique as every individual. It´s an unknown field where we often don´t speak about or we feel uncomfortable to show it. For that we often fear or avoid the feelings of grief.

We heal in connection with others. You don´t have to go through grief alone. Your grief asks to be witnessed and your feelings ask to be expressed. My intention with our meetings is for you to feel safe to share your story of loss, to start exploring how your grief looks like, to start recognizing it and to make conscious space for it in your life. To gradualy learn to feel your feelings, to learn to move with them, to learn to grief fully and to live fully, so that gradually you will grow around the pain and can integrate it into love.


I offer my grief & loss support in person and online (zoom).
We can meet in a coaching space in Alfambras, 5 min south of Aljezur or at another location.
I also travel the south west coast of the Algarve & the south of the Alentejo
I speak Dutch, English, intermediate Portugese & - German.

Depending on location some fuel costs might be added.
If finances bring up difficulties, please let me know and we can explore possibilities.

My Inspiration

´Grief is like a river. The river knows where you need to go. If we allow ourselves to go down this river, our grief it will take us to our healing. .`
