My Books


I write books to share my knowledge on the topics I find interesting and important. My first book "Learn how to cope with death, loss, grief, and bereavement" appeared at the time when I wanted to share how the concept of cognitive-behavioral therapy can be applied in grief therapy. It became very successful but many readers shared with me that they found some parts of the book rather difficult to understand, too "technically written", so in my next book "Faces of Grief" I have taken a conscious decision to present all information in an easy to read way, to enable as many people as possible to find useful information on how to help themselves or their loved ones to overcome the pain of loss and emerge from grief. "Faces of Grief" has now become very popular and has been rated as a bestselling title in its category on Amazon several times.

I continue writing, and plan to add more titles to the "Faces" series in the coming years. Stay tuned :)) and please share your feedback on my books. I would love to hear from you!



Faces of Grief - Overcoming the Pain of Loss

Faces of Grief - Overcoming the Pain of Loss

Many books are written about grief: what it is and how to deal with it - but no loss is the same. The intensity of grief depends on many different factors. Grief varies between young and old and between cultures and religions, and depends on levels of existing dysfunction and on the nature of death (if the death was expected or sudden). It depends on previous experiences with death and attachment styles, and, of course, interpersonal factors play a very important role, as well. Grief also depends on the personality of the bereaved and the type of relationship the bereaved had with the deceased. Unprocessed emotions in that relationship, conflicts, repressed feelings, and unspoken words all come out in grief and weigh heavily upon a grieving person, often complicating recovery.

In Faces of Grief, I share many stories of grief from my psychotherapy practice and explain how grief can be anticipatory, disenfranchised, or complicated. I also discuss the common myths about grief. All stories reveal the extensive work that the bereaved has to go through to enable them to come to terms with guilt, self-reproach, and the pain of grief.

I also provide practical information on how to help yourself or your grieving loved one, how to talk to children about death and grief, and what not to say to a person who is grieving. This book will be useful for anyone going through bereavement and grief, and for those supporting them.

Losing a loved one can be devastating. Coping with loss often takes a long time, challenging our values, beliefs, redefining the established roles, relationships, responsibilities, and demands. The grieving process focuses on major tasks that need to be completed to emerge from grief. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help confront pain and guide the grieving individual through the grief stages as well as deal with depression, anxiety, guilt, self-blame, and hopelessness. This book will be helpful to the recently bereaved as well as to therapists starting to work with grief in CBT therapy.
