Podcast: For anyone experiencing loss of a loved one
The first episode below is aimed at anyone coping with the loss of a loved one, or anyone who would like to support them. It also touches on the broader feelings of loss that many people are feeling right now – the sense of a loss of normality, be it due to a change in your lifestyle, your job, or which members of your family you are able to see right now. In this episode I’m joined by Erika-Gati Howe, a Telephone Counsellor on Bupa's Employee Assistance Programme with a background in bereavement therapy, to discuss these feelings and techniques for coping.
