Most of us have not been taught how to grieve. This is a great conversation with Beth about taking care of yourself around your loss, avoidance of the pain, and changing our coping mechanisms.
My favorite quote from Beth:
"We are made to heal"
In this episode, we talk about:
Why it is so important to do the work around loss
Approaches outside the common "talking to friends"
Types of loss
What people can expect after they do the work
Normalizing the process
Learning to grieve and gaining perspective
Beth is a success coach and licensed professional counselor, specializing in relationships and healing after loss. She loves working with mid-life women who are ready to break old patterns and find more satisfaction and purpose.
I host a weekly podcast where I interview dementia specialists and other professionals to help caregivers feel educated, supported, and empowered.
We talk about a variety of topics including how to live your best life as a caregiver, how to work with challenges that may arise, and how to gain knowledge so you can be your own best advocate.
