Julia Samuel MBE’s hugely popular events at Good Grief 2020 led to a series of successful Ask Julia events this year. We are now thrilled to welcome Julia back for this special session in which we’ll explore a specific and difficult type of grief: that which follows a sudden death.

When a loved one is ripped from us with little or no time to prepare, dealing with the aftermath can be unimaginably hard. With no warning, no time to say the things we could have and surrounded by the echoes of a shared life at every turn, moving forward can feel impossible. Such traumatic loss can change a person’s whole perspective of the world.

Join us to hear Julia’s invaluable insight and wisdom, which we hope will prove helpful for anyone who has ever found themselves suddenly bereaved.
