Accredited Grief, Bereavement and Loss Support 

When we experience a loss or bereavement the associated grief can feel overwhelming at first.  It is a complex emotional process which continuously evolves over time.  


Grief is a deeply personal experience. There is definitely no right or wrong way to grieve and there is certainly no 'one-size-fits-all' approach, everyone is different.


In my role as a Grief, Loss, and Bereavement Counsellor, my primary focus is on offering compassionate, personal, and meaningful support in a space which is personal to you, confidential and safe.


.  I can help you with: (not exhaustive)


Grief/Bereavement support (recent or past)

Loss associated with relationships

Loss of personal health & wellbeing

Staff support (for employees or employers)

Pet Loss

End of Life Support (for patients and families)

Long-term Illness support (individuals and families)


To ensure timely access to support, I strive to maintain short waiting lists. Appointments are typically scheduled within 10 working days following the initial free consultation.


Presently, appointments are conducted virtually, at a time that suits you, which includes evenings and weekends. (In-person sessions will be available starting in Spring 2024).


I am also able to provide group talks/presentations/guest speaker services to offer guidance on the complexities of grief and understanding the nature of grief from both personal and theoretical aspects.

Jo Goodwin-Worton

In 2019 my life changed when at only 41, my late-husband sadly died after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Gastro-Oesophageal cancer in 2018.


After seeking grief support myself,  it inspired me to use my experience to help others who find themselves grieving after a loss or bereavement.  


I know that I can never understand another person's grief as all our experiences are personal and unique, however through my first-hand experience, I can relate to all the complex and often overwhelming thoughts and feelings you may have.


Whether it is individual support, group support, presentations or company training, I am able to offer a range of services which will offer guidance and compassionate support at an incredibly difficult time.

I am an elected Fellow of the Society of Bereavement Practitioners (FSBP). 


The Society of Bereavement Practitioners (SoBP) is the independent professional membership organisation for anyone working or volunteering with bereaved people and their families.


The SoBP represents a public commitment to the aims of the Society and to ethical practice and the highest professional standards in the field.


A fellowship reflects the considerable commitment and achievement by Jo, in all aspects of bereavement and loss support. It shows a commitment to promoting and encouraging the highest standards of education, training, and ethical and professional conduct throughout all aspects of Seeds In Time. 

I hold a Fellowship of the ACCPH
