I thoroughly recommend this book, especially for newly bereaved parents. I know how difficult it is to concentrate and books written clearly, with the text broken into digestible chunks, are what we need. Also the honest and immediate way Vanessa tells her story makes it easy to connect with someone who knows what it feels like to grieve for a child. Add to that her really useful advice and this book is excellent".
Theresa Cheung, Sunday Times bestselling author:
'Vanessa May has written a book that can truly help all those who are grieving find deep spiritual meaning, comfort and strength. Highly recommended.'
Nancy Tucker, author of 'The First Day of Spring', 'The Time in Between' and 'That Was When People Started to Worry':
'Vanessa’s book is unusual in its fusion of heart-breaking honesty and determined, resolute hope. It is essential reading for the bereaved and those trying to support them. I was - and remain - deeply moved by her strength and courage.'
Lucy Lyndhurst, mother of actor Archie Lyndhurst:
'Love Untethered is beautiful and I take the greatest comfort from Vanessa's honesty. From the physical side of grief to the emotional side, to the behaviour of friends and the world outside - it all needs to be more out there so that the grief associated with losing a child can be better understood. I think this book will help so many.'

Elaine Wilkins, founder of Chrysalis Effect Health and The Trauma Informed Wellbeing Coaching Accreditation for Health Professionals:
‘Vanessa’s courageous survival of personal bereavement, combines with extensive professional experience to make this a deeply insightful guide into working sensitively and confidently with clients affected by grief. This is now required reading for our wellbeing coaching students.’
Kate Alexander, BANT Registered Nutritionist, BANT Membership Manager:
‘I would highly recommend Vanessa May’s book to any nutritional therapist, or indeed any health professional. This book gives invaluable advice and insight on how to work sympathetically with grieving clients in order to support their individual health needs.’
Simon Martin, editor IHCAN magazine:
‘Grief can contribute to chronic disease – even kill, yet most practitioners are unaware of its consequences. Vanessa May ably details the key nutritional support for grieving clients, while providing an excellent blueprint for understanding grief’s impact on the gut and nervous system. This is a vital missing link in practitioner education.'
