Ep. 10 Dr Helen Greally on grief following diagnosis & grief theories
Dr Helen Greally is a psycho-oncologist with Cancer Care West. Helen has over forty years experience working with people through grief and loss, following diagnosis. Her PhD focused on spousal bereavement and she has collected a host of grief experiences from people of all ages throughout the country. In this episode of Shapes Of Grief, Helen talks about the shock that can come following a difficult diagnosis, theories of grief and why the 5 stages is usually not that useful, as well as some of the ways in which she works with grief, trauma and forging continuous bonds with our deceased loved ones.
Helen provides us with a wealth of wisdom and empathy, it is a total privilege to have had Helen as a guest on Shapes Of Grief.
