I have now closed my counselling practice for new clients and am devoting my time to researching and writing. I have written seven books and I hope you will find them helpful in trying to make sense of your life. My first book is on the death of a child and how it impacts parents and siblings. You will see this in the publications section of this site. I do not make any profit from this book, and those bereaved of children find it very useful. The book explores in a simple way the impact of our thirteen-year-old child’s death and how we coped with it over many years. Some of the details are taken from diaries we kept. Losing a child is immensely painful, but ultimately we can cope well with it. If you have lost a child, I am very sorry, and I hope this book will help you. It is titled When a Child Dies. Footsteps of a Grieving Family.
