Living with Grief Talk

Thursday 8th December 2022
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Harlow Town Library

Join us for an information session, helping you to understand grief

As a way to mark national Grief Awareness Week, St Clare Hospice will be holding a free Living with Grief Talk at Harlow Town Library on Thursday 8th December, 2pm – 4pm.

“Grief is a natural reaction to loss. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, or set timescales.”

This free information session is open to the public, and will be delivered by St Clare Adult and Family Counsellor, Amanda Pelham, and GriefLine Project Manager, Chloe Rich. It is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, either recently or long ago, or to anyone simply wanting to find out more about grief, and how to support others.

Understanding grief

The talk will aim to help you deepen your understanding of grief, and will cover:

  • What to expect when you are grieving
  • Looking after yourself and others
  • Finding out what support is available

After the talk there will be light refreshments, and the opportunity to speak to others who have experienced the loss of someone, as well as members of the Patient & Family Support team.

Join us

The event is free to attend, and you do not need a prior connection to St Clare Hospice. There is no need to book – just turn up on the day!
