Let's Chat... Episodes

Conversations around loss and grief

These episodes pop-up every few weeks instead of one of our 101 different losses, as Claire chats to a guest who has experience or expertise in a particular area that can help us deal with, or prepare for, loss.

And she's building a toolkit, well, a whole tool shed, of equipment to help us face loss. Tune in to see what each guest adds to the shed...
