'I felt understood and less alone in my deep sadness after reading this powerful book.'

' Superbly written, honest, heart-breaking, inspiring, and deeply moving.'

'I can honestly say that this book has touched me and spoken to me more than any other.'

'Love Untethered' gives me hope that somehow I will survive this and that moments of joy will one day live alongside my grief.'

My hope is that this book might help others who have suffered a devastating loss and that they will be able to relate to my story and maybe find some of the advice offered to be of benefit. I also hope it will be of interest to anyone who just likes to read about other people’s lived experiences. I hope too that the book will raise awareness about the true nature of deep grief so that those who are grieving are always given the compassion and understanding they need.
Theresa Cheung, Sunday Times bestselling author:
'Vanessa May has written a book that can truly help all those who are grieving find deep meaning, comfort and strength.
Highly recommended.'

Love Untethered

'Love Untethered' charts Vanessa's experience of the devastating and life-changing loss of her son.  For anyone who is going through a bereavement, (or knows someone who is), 'Love Untethered' could provide a lifeline. It’s an honest and brave account of how you go on after someone important has died. Based on both her personal and professional experience, Vanessa provides advice on making the grieving process a little more bearable when your world has been shattered beyond recognition. She also highlights something often overlooked - that grief affects us profoundly, not only emotionally but sometimes physically and spiritually too.
'Love Untethered' offers hope that, although immensely challenging and not something you ever get over, it is possible to survive something as terrible as the death of your child and to find meaning and purpose in life as you live on without them. A life now sustained by untethered love.

'Love Untethered' is available from Amazon

Supporting Your Grieving Client: A guide for wellness practitioners

If you’re a wellness practitioner, the likelihood is that you will at some point work with a bereaved client. This guide aims to help you feel prepared and confident in how you support them. It will explain how loss and grief can place tremendous strain on the body and how it may manifest physically, mentally, and spiritually, whilst equipping you with the tools and resources you need to support your grieving client.

Vanessa May draws from over 17 years’ worth of experience as a registered nutritional therapist, wellbeing coach, and trauma-informed holistic grief coach. As a result, she is able to educate readers on grief models and theories versus the actual reality of grief through case studies as well as her own experiences of traumatic loss.
