He captioned the video: “Hey Gang need some help. Is there anyone going through some grief that can spare two hours this afternoon at @TheShardLondon.”

The dad-of-two said: “Doing a bit of filming in the Shard for a little pilot of a new coaching programme for the W channel.

“Dr Christian has a physical thing going at the moment and now they want someone who can look after the mental side of things.

“That’s where I come in.”

The star then went on to ask for “two bereaved clients, preferably women” who would be able to take part in a free counselling session.

This comes after the life coach appeared on This Morning to host a phone-in conversation on grief.

Viewers were moved to tears over the TV presenter’s touching advice to a caller, Kate, who wanted to know how to prepare her children for her own death.

“@JeffBrazier once again inspired by the support you offer people who are struggling with end of life issues, keep up the good work Jeff,” wrote one viewer on Twitter.

Another said: “Well done Jeff hope this lady finds comfort with your words and help.”

Following his appearance fans of the show were quick to praise the star calling him an “inspiration”.

One wrote: “Your doing an amazing job such an inspiration your boys must be so proud of you and extremely lucky to have you as a dad.”

Jeff’s former partner Jade Goody passed away in 2009 after losing her battle to cervical cancer and now focuses on bringing up their two sons Freddie, 12, and Bobby, 13.

He shared a heartbreaking message revealing how difficult it was for the boys to cope with their mum’s death anniversary alongside Mothers Day.

He wrote: “Glad last week’s over. I try & reduce the impact but having Jades anniversary & Mother’s Day in the same week is a cruel blow for the boys.”
