Growing around grief

Updated: 5 days ago

This model was created by grief counsellor Dr Lois Tonkin in 1996. Many people find this model a helpful description of their grief experience.

Like the stages of grief by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, the journey of growing around grief is not linear and there may be moments when our grief is just as painful as they time immediately after the death or loss. But there may also be times when we feel able to live outside of our grief, experience new things and create new parts in our life.
