A gift when you don’t have the words to say...

I bought this gift for a student of mine who lost their parents. They shared they were worried about forgetting memories about them. Thank you for creating something that allows people to gift something to those who are hurting.

A safe place to land

I have found so much comfort in between the pages of this beautiful journal - it’s been my safe place to land, a capsule to explore, express and honour all that is within.

Perfect bereavement guide

I purchased a number of copies of Grief: A guided journal to gift to clients. I am a bereavement counsellor and I found the journal a fabulous companion for my clients when I was not with them. The journal is thoughtfully put together and the kindness and compassion grieving individuals need was evident in every page. Simply perfect ❤️

I sent it to my sister in law who lost her husband 4 months ago they had been married 50 years and she was only 15 when they met ! Due to lockdown I couldn’t personally give it to her it is in the mail now ! She isn’t coping well so I’m hoping this book at some stage will help her at losing the love of her life ❤️

An Amazing Find

This book was recommended to me by a friend. I never (thought) I needed help after losing my husband suddenly to cancer 4 years ago. However, this guided journal changed my whole grief process and outlook. I can see that Jo Betz understands what I was going through is so many ways. I gave this copy to my daughter who was 13 at the time, and I have ordered another for myself and my son (who recently lost his 18yr old daughter to an accident)...too much grief for one family to carry, but being helped by this insightful journal that asks me to ask myself questions i didn't think I could ask myself...or answer. Thank you. Rae

Lovely gift for a friend

I bought your journal for a friend who has just lost her 20-year-old son She said as she looked through it that it would be very helpful for her. So hard to know how to help during such difficult times, thank you for putting the book together and sharing your story Jo.

Grief Journal

I ordered this journal for myself as my husband passed away on Mothers day this year 2021. After he passed away i decided that i wanted to write in a Diary at the end of each day and tell him what has happened for the day. When I saw this book i thought it also might be useful for my grief journey. I have had a read through the journal however have not started to make notes in it yet. I love the idea of a journal.

A helping hand

I was really struggling with my Mums passing when I saw this book advertised. I ended up buying one for myself and one for my daughter, who was also struggling. The book is really well presented and has really helped me understand my grief. Highly recommend it.

My 43 year old daughter passed on the 19th May I opened the book and started to read but found I was too emotional so have put it away for when I feel ready. I love the presentation of the book and I know it is there for the future

Good Grief

This journal has been so helpful when nothing else has moved me out of confusion and stuck in grief. Its been quite cathartic ...I've let all the good bad and **** out ...thought I had done sobbing ...but it has managed to help me put some shape to how gut wrenching my loss is. Amazing that in just a few words Jo has created a safe space...I feel like I am writing to her and to myself at the same time. Thank you
