Grief Counselling 101, ft. Irish Dhindsa (#011‪)‬ Philotimo Life

    • Society & Culture

Grieving is never easy. But who said you’ve got to deal with it alone? Bring in an expert - that’s what we did!


Irish Dhindsa is a professional grief support worker, specializing in community outreach at the Bereaved Families of Ontario. She’s here to talk to us about support systems, our journey of healing, and even her similar experiences to Ammo with Punjabi culture.


We then put what we’ve learned to the test with a game of Wheel of Misfortune!


Finally, Irish walks us through the physical changes that our brains go through when experiencing trauma - the neuroanatomy of grief.


Get to grips with your grief right here, folks.
