This workshop will help you to find ways to assist you when you are on your own and looks at some insights, strategies and reflections that Trish has found to be effective in navigating her grief after losing her seven-year-old son Thomas.
Grief and mindset – finding ways to reframe your thoughts, memories and relationship with grief and your child
Duality of life after loss – balancing the intensity of sorrow while finding moments of joy
Triggers and their purpose – taking control of the emotional impact and meaning of music, images, literature and other expressions that trigger
Maintaining legacy – giving purpose to the energy and love you still devote to your child
