    Welcome to a place to discuss the loss of a partner, family member, close friend or anyone significant in your life.

    Everyone grieves differently. Your grief is as unique as your own fingerprint. However, while often immensely painful, grief is our natural healing process in response to loss.

    Grief comes and goes, it can be intense and then manageable, predictable and then uncontrollable. It might be brought on by a recent loss or a historical one, be triggered by an anniversary or the dread of an approaching milestone.

    This forum is a safe and emotionally supportive space. It is a place to be accepted and understood by others who can empathise with you. You can feel free to remember your loved one and tell us about your grief journey. Together we can learn to understand the changing nature of grief over time while sharing coping tools and ways to practice self-care.

    To me, the loss of someone you love is so difficult and I’m not sure we ever are ready for it. I try to find the ‘gift’ in the loss, something important to take away that reflects the meaning of the love shared and the positive influence they had on me.We often don’t ‘get over it,’ however we can learn to manage our grief and learn to live with loss.
