As we start to slowly adapt and alter our daily existence in everything we do, we will all be feeling a whole range of emotions.

When I trained as an Aromatherapist over 25 years ago, one nugget of information has stuck and resonated with me and my clients over the years and that is the cycle of grief developed by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, a Swiss American psychiatrist. She was a pioneer in grief management and how medical staff cared for terminally ill patients. Her work led to her writing her findings in the bestselling book On Death and Dying.

Here she explained the natural stages of grief that we pass through when losing someone.

However, this cycle of emotions can be helpful in any stage of transition, which is what we are all going through right now!

You may have seen it before, it may be new to you…take a look and hopefully it will help?
