Favorite Quote

As humans, we naturally try to avoid suffering, but, contrary to all our instincts, to heal our grief we need to allow ourselves to feel the pain; we need to find ways to support ourselves in it, for it cannot be escaped.

Julia Samuel


Death impacts everyone in the world everyday, and yet it remains a largely taboo subject in Western society.

Death is discussed in hushed tones, or conversations about it are avoided completely, so it's no mystery why we don't know how to deal with it properly when it touches our lives.

Psychotherapist Julia Samuel's expert insights have been developed over three decades working as a grief specialist at St. Mary's Hospital, London, and in private practice.

In 1994, Samuel's pioneering work led her to be the Founder Patron of Child Bereavement UK – a leading charity that supports families and children in bereavement. Grief Works is Samuel's first book.

Here, Samuel closely examines the concept of grief and shows us how we can manage it in healthy ways.

The book includes case studies from some of Samuel's clients, showing the myriad of experiences around death and grief.

Samuel also offers sensitive yet practical advice for families and friends who are supporting a bereaved person.
