Jeff brazier who is he dating
Retraining as a life coach and grief counsellor, Jeff is now a bereavement spokesperson and presents regular spots on ITV’s This Morning.
When we meet 38-year-old Jeff to chat about his first book, The Grief Survival Guide, he’s thoughtful and intelligent and absolutely loves talking about his boys. I’ve done a lot of blogging and writing and found it cathartic – by the time I’m done writing about something, it’s not a problem but a solution.
He recently released his first book entitled The Grief Survival Guide as a tool to help those dealing with the loss of a loved one.
Jeff has spoken openly about his experiences as a single dad trying to guide his children through their bereavement.
“It would have been so useful for the boys to have been able to express their grief to something that wasn’t going to give them advice or anything – that gave them unconditional love and just laid with them and was just there in the moment.
Admitting that he doesn’t always get things right, Jeff said: “I regret that we never got a pet.There are other routes to achieving your goal and it’s not really good enough to just want to be famous so people know who you are. Those moments when you feel all the effort you’re putting into these boys’ futures is paying off. Sometimes you want someone to help with decisions, as the responsibility always lies with you. In the six months before Jade died, I developed a coping strategy of making everything very straightforward: just the boys and work.Like at parents’ evening, when the teachers say what a pleasure Bobby is to teach. I was seeing a fantastic girl but I needed not to have that distraction, so I ended the relationship.We’re evaluating when the right time for her to move in is. I think we’ll just go all out and have twin girls, because my friend Jenny Frost [of Atomic Kitten] has twin girls and they couldn’t be any cuter. My friend gave me some face cream yesterday and I put it on – then I realised it was supposed to be for my lips!She spends half the week with us in Essex and half in Brighton, where she’s from. I'm not sure if they still look like this today because I haven't seen them since breakfast when they ditched me for their holiday crew! #Fun #Friends #Grateful A post shared by Jeff Brazier (@jeffbrazier) on Do we hear wedding bells? I’m not great at grooming, but I tend not to eat junk, although I did a lot of comfort eating while writing the book – lots of chocolate. I’d tell myself that I was going to go through something more challenging than I’d ever think possible, but not to put so much pressure on myself and to understand that if I feel content and balanced, the boys will too.
It looks like you’ve done a brilliant job bringing them up. If you got it perfect, I want to know what book you’ve read! It would have been so useful for the boys to have been able to express their grief to something that wasn’t going to give them advice or anything – that gave them unconditional love and just laid with them and was just there in the moment. Also that we’ve moved house four times since Jade died, for various reasons – the boys really needed roots. If they go on social media, the privacy you’ve cultivated will be gone…
