Jo Betz is not your typical widow.


Grief - a guided journal.


venting ones own thoughts on paper is an extremely good practice

It wasn’t for me, I purchased them both for presents for peoples that have recently lost close ones.I lost my husband some 13 years ago now & our baby daughter (at different times) so I know grief intimately. I wrote in my journals which I found an excellent way of venting & still today write in my diary.

Beautiful journal

I am a Counsellor and work with cancer patients and those experiencing loss and grief. I bought the Grief journal as a resource to share with my clients. It is a gentle and easy to navigate tool to help in what can been a very traumatic time. It’s gorgeous,thanks Jo

Great tool

I have not yet started writing, but just flicking through the book, it looks promising to assist with any healing, remember good times, and to just let myself cry it out!

I lost my fiancé 22 years ago and yet I still struggle with the sorrow. This book has become my safe place to let locked feelings out. Thank you 🙏

“Coming out of this experience, all I could feel was complete loss. I’d gone from being a wife and mother, to a widow and single mother. I’d lost my husband, the father of my child, my best friend, my number one supporter and my confidence. I started to wonder who I was and I didn’t know who I was going to end up being.”
