Your expert guide Julia Samuel MBE

Renowned psychotherapist Julia Samuel MBE created this app to provide high quality support that you can have with you and turn to at any time.

She’s distilled everything she’s learned from more than 30 years counselling the bereaved into something you can download and use immediately and have on hand 24/7, for the price of a few private therapy sessions.

Eternally grateful

“In the depths of my grief a friend recommended the app and I am eternally grateful. The tools helped me through my saddest loneliest times, when the pain was almost unbearable. The app is money well spent and is helping me through the most difficult, painful time of my life. Thank you.”

Unravels the complexities

This app has done so much to help me unravel the complexities of my grief. Three heavy years of being stuck but after only 10 days I feel lighter and calmer. I’m so glad I found it.

Helpful for anyone grieving

This app is a wonderful resource for anyone who is trying to cope with the death of a loved one and is feeling lost in a new and unwelcome new world. It feels remarkably personal and nurturing.

Like a good friend

It’s been like having a good friend with me each day who understands more than anyone else the despair and loneliness of grief. I wish I’d found this earlier.

Great app

A really powerful tool which is supporting me to move through one of the toughest periods in my life.

Lifesaver

“Grief Works has been truly life changing. The app helped me feel deeply connected to my wife, who died 5 months ago. It has allowed me to appreciate both the bright moment as the moments of sadness. I’ve gone from floundering in despair to feeling more like myself.”

Support at whatever stage you are in your journey

This app has the potential to change your grief journey into a reflective, supportive and more positive experience, at a time when you might be feeling lost, alone and fearful of your future. Highly recommend.
