    Ep. 15 - Laura Madaio

    Laura & I connected through Instagram just last year; she is the amazing woman behind the Instagram account, @griefhungry, that I spoke about in episode 2.

    Laura’s Dad, John, died in truly bizarre circumstances.  In this episode, she talks about the day it happened and how she and her family found out details of her Dad’s death through the media whilst waiting for updates in the hospital.  Her family’s ‘relationship’ with the media, including social media, didn’t stop there.

    We also chatted about ‘grief brain’, the amazing grief community Laura has built online and, of course, how food seems to bring us all together.

    Ep. 14 - Lara Khouri

    I’ve known Lara indirectly for a few years, she reached out to me to talk about her blog.  During that conversation I realised that Lara was grieving, she was grieving her own life; her life before Fibromyalgia.  According to WebMD, Fibromyalgia “can feel similar to osteoarthritis, bursitis and tendinitis. But rather than hurting in a specific area, the pain and stiffness could be throughout your body… simply put, you ache all over”.  I asked Lara if she would be willing to share her story; she kindly said yes and I found out that she not only grieves her youth being taken from her, but also her future.

    After being mis-diagnosed for three years, Lara has now learnt to live with ‘Fibro’, but wished she had more support and knowledge in those early days.  In her words, COVID-19 gave Lara the gift of time and she has spent hundreds of hours researching the condition, going on to start a blog & vlog to help raise awareness for others.

    Ep. 13 - Aisling Prendergast - Psychologist from The Lighthouse

    Ep. 13 - Aisling Prendergast - Psychologist from The Lighthouse

    This episode I was joined by Aisling Prendergast, MSc (UK) MBACP (reg.) Psychologist and Lead Program Co-ordinator for Raymee Grief Centre at The Lighthouse, a community mental health and wellness clinic, located in Dubai, providing quality psychological and psychiatric care to children, adults, couples and families.

    Not only does Aisling talk through her interpretation of the grief process and different types of grief, she also gives insight into her own grief and therapy journey.  We also learn that therapists don’t take things personally (basically if you don’t like them, tell them and they will find someone you hopefully will!) and, that even as an Irish woman, Aisling doesn’t recommend alcohol as any kind of solution surrounding grief. Oh, and I say “By jove!” at some point, so listen out for that too!

    Ep. 12 - Ewan Walton

    In this episode I chatted with Ewan about his cousin, Sarah. Sarah took her own life just six weeks ago.  With the blessing of her father, Ewan wanted to tell her story in the hope that it could help at least one person.

    We also touched on Ewan’s own personal struggles, including divorce and career failures, which pushed him to find his own voice and begin talking; something he feels very passionately about.

    If you or anyone you know may be affected by anything we speak about in this episode, please reach out and we will connect you to people that can help.

    Ep. 11 - Richard Overy

    This is the first guest I’ve had that I literally do not know and have never met… which is strange in many ways as it turns out that we are related!  You’ll get to hear all about that in due course.

    Richard reached out to me on social media to say he’d been enjoying the podcast and that he was so surprised at how open everyone had been, as he is from (in his words) the ‘stiff upper lip’ generation.  We then got chatting and it turns out he experienced great losses at an early age with both his brother and father dying before he was 24 and his mother a little later in life.

    I asked that, if he would ever consider telling his story, which could in turn encourage others to tell theirs, to let me know.  After a while, Richard came back with the perfect reply…
    “Actually Katie you're making a very strong point, letting others know that life goes on; the sun does come up etc etc could help that one person cope more”

    Thank you Richard.

    Ep. 10 - Dominique Zawisza

    Dominique’s Mum didn’t pass away, yet there was still loss to deal with after she left the family to start a new life.

    Dominique talks about how she grieved this loss and how, with the help of her husband acting as ‘UN Peacekeeper”, she is working on rebuilding her relationship with her Mum for the sake of her young children.

    Unsurprisingly, we also talk cats, me making people feel awkward about death and the time I called Dominique “Dom” in front of a client (never again!).
