An inspiring companion for your journey through grief.
An inspiring companion for your journey through grief.
Grief is closely associated with death, but can be triggered when we lose anything with which we have an emotional connection.
Much that can be read about the grieving process is outdated and can serve an injustice to our rapidly evolving, modern society. In conjunction with recent medical and societal advancements, new and complex presentations of grief have arisen. As a result, our own journey through grief must also evolve in order for us to effectively heal and even flourish as a result of our experiences surrounding loss.
Delivering an eclectic blend of medical and spiritual observations and teachings, Good Grief: The A to Z Approach of Modern Day Grief Healing addresses life as well as death, and provides a practical guidebook for your unique grief journey. It goes beyond the conventional views that we are just a physical body, aiming to enlighten and encourage the reader to use the tools within the pages to bring about a collateral beauty that reveals great strength, personal growth, and spiritual emergence.

Shelley’s wise and compassionate words offer hope and courage, good feelings that are not often associated with grief. Her book written from the perspective of a former nursing career is an empowering, healing dose of essential self help for all those who are grieving as well as anyone who has ever struggled to face their own mortality. Coping with grief is going to be the theme over the next few years as the world recovers from the pandemic and Shelley is a clear, authentic and uplifting voice that can help people cope better with the trauma. ~ Theresa Cheung, Sunday Times bestselling author
Shelley manages to inspire you to live a better life, through her speaking on death. It's an amazing feat - and one she does with an incredible amount of humour - she is properly funny.

Shelley makes this subject so much more comfortable and easier to talk about. she is compassionate, has the right amount of empathy and will hold the audience attention. I would definitely recommend Shelley without hesitation. ~ Chad Marshall-Lane, Owner of CML Solutions. Attendee to Life Goes On talk.
Shelley delivers teachings on grief like no other. Her message is warm, compassionate and punctuated with wonderful humour. Whatever is happening in the world, loss and grief are constants.

Read, learn, digest, cry, smile and celebrate, all the time being held safely by Shelley’s down to Earth approach, supported by her years of experience as a nurse. ~ Taz Thornton, Author of Whispers from the Earth (Moon Books)
I had the pleasure of listening to Shelley speak about death, based on her knowledge through nursing and personal experience with people close to her, and she was captivating and entertaining. Doesn’t seem right given the subject matter, but Shelley articulated an intelligent, thought provoking and unique perspective that got us all hooked. Her talk was tinged with sadness but masked by humour and humility, and she had us in the palm of her hand. Shelley is a one of the best speakers I have listened to and should you be fortunate enough to hear her speak, you won’t be let down, she is a one off! ~ Graham Harris , Bestselling author of Against The Grain (Rudling House Publishing Limited)
A skilled and engaging speaker that manages to tackle the tricky subject of death so beautifully and honestly and yet with a lightness and humour that just has to be seen.

Shelley is a bundle of sunshine, humor, and professionalism. She was on my podcast, Going North and she lives the message that she writes about. Positive people are still human no matter how long they can smile through adversity. Invite Shelley to speak at your stage whether it's virtual or in-person to share valuable takeaways on being a realistic optimist. ~ Dominique Brightmon, Bestselling Author and podcaster
