Cohort-based Course

Discover a proven way through your pain to restore a sense of control and calm.

Course overview

Are you bereaved and done with feeling broken, lonely, and out of control?

Frankly, grief sucks! Nothing I can do will remove all the pain, but I've walked in your shoes and have developed tried and tested methods that've enabled thousands of people like you to get their life back on track.

This course is for you if...

01

You're desperate to get your life back on track while honouring your loved ones.

02

You're done with feeling judged, helpless and lonely and sick of people telling you you're not grieving 'properly'.

03

You're desperate to protect your family, key relationships, your career and even your sanity!

By the end of this course you will...

Develop your personal go-to strategies for handling grief's emotional rollercoaster

Had enough of those terrible 'grief ambushes' when it all goes wrong at the very worst time?! You'll learn 3 proven tools for handling big emotions with compassion and grace.

Feel more confident in your ability to move on with this loss

Students often come to me fearing they're "not grieving right". Discovering key insights from the new science of bereavement, you'll be equipped to push back on unwanted advice & empowered to grieve your own way.

Identify and preserve important relationships

Understanding different grief styles helps reduce conflict, enhances empathy and boosts tolerance at a time when you are likely to need it! We'll help you avoid the most common relationship pitfalls and get the help you need.

Stop feeling so lonely and misunderstood

Experience the relief of connecting with people who truly get what you are going through, and understand the numbness, disbelief and physical exhaustion. The sense of shared experience is both liberating and validating.

Why learn with Lucy?

Dr. Lucy Hone

Dr. Lucy Hone

Hi, I'm Lucy and I know the agony of what you're going through as I've been there myself. This course was born out of my own experience of heartbreaking loss when our 12 year old daughter was killed in a tragic road accident.


My TED talk, 3 Secrets of Resilient People, went viral during Covid, putting it in the Top 20 most watched talks of 2020.


When Abi died, as a resilience researcher, I quickly became frustrated by the standard grief advice. I wanted to be an active participant in my grief process, doing everything I possibly could to survive, instead of a helpless passenger.


In the eight years since, I have become known globally for helping thousands of people find a better way through bereavement. There is no one 'right' way to grieve, but there are tools that can make the journey less agonising and help you handle your emotions. Nowadays, I'm a senior adjunct professor and travel the world as a professional speaker, best-selling author, and award-winning ‘pracademic’. I blog for Psychology Today and my grief work is featured in the Guardian, the Washington Post, the BBC, CBS, ABC, the Sydney Morning Herald, Channel News Asia, Swedish Television, and TVNZ.


Frankly, grief sucks! Nothing I can do will remove all the pain, but I can share everything I've learned with you, to restore hope, regain control and help you feel more like yourself again.


Ultimately, it is possible to live and grieve at the same time. I look forward to showing you how.


Lucy 💗

What people say...

        I can't believe how much I got out of this course. I learnt a lot. Words to help describe or label thoughts & emotions. I enjoyed the science-based approach & the wonderful resources. It's made me curious & not to be afraid, embrace the knowledge. The 2-hour sessions went quickly. Wonderful that sessions are recorded & you can go back to them.

        At the end I felt like I could breathe again. It was very soothing and helpful for me. Like others, I compared it to the price of one on one therapy & decided to enrol. There are four workers in the programme & it is very well run - we were learning from some of the best people in the world.

        This course was exactly what I needed right now. The shared language, discussion, experiences brought me enormous reassurance, that where I’ve been and where I am now is where I need to be. I look forward to keeping in touch with my course colleagues and growing our relationships.

        A very well worth course! I was pleasantly reassured that overall 'I was doing OK' even though it's only been 7 months since our daughter's death. I was initially nervous about joining a cohort but it was amazing to be w people who are all in this post loved one loss 'new world' & get it. The best & only counselling I'll ever need. Thanks so much.

        Your work is exactly what I've been looking for for a decade. A few years after my sister died, I was ready to move beyond 'everything sucks' to 'how do I let this make me stronger'? So many times in grief, I just wanted to be heard, other times I wanted straight up advice. Lucy is that guide, what I'd been searching for all those years.

        A Better Way to Grieve was incredibly helpful. Both in understanding my own journey of grief, but also understanding other people's journey, especially those close to me. Being surrounded by other participants who are going through some of the same experiences was also so reassuring.

        So helpful. After seven and a half years struggling to find a path through this terrible grief, seeing various counsellors who had no idea how to help me and my doctor who has patiently tried to help and pointed me in this direction. I can now see some light out of this dark tunnel.
