A photo of Emma, a white woman with brown hair

Emma has been on a long journey with her grief after losing her mum when she was 9 years old. It has been difficult but she hopes to be able to bring her experiences and help other people manage their grief.

She is a primary school teacher but music is her true passion. She enjoys going to gigs and festivals and doing a lot of dancing!

She hopes to be able to provide a safe and comfortable space for people to talk about their grief.

Vandana moved to the UK as a part of navigating her grief. By day, she is a product manager, and beyond that, she loves to crochet, solve puzzles, and see the world one destination at a time!

Vandana’s journey with Let’s Talk About Loss is deeply personal; she lost her dad to Parkinson’s, and the weight of grief hit her hard. Over time, she has uncovered strength, resilience, and healing to progress in her grief journey. Now, Vandana is eager to connect with fellow grievers, offering support in navigating this journey together!

Got questions or want to speak to us?


How will I know where you are?

Our meet up Hosts will be wearing white t-shirts with Let’s Talk About Loss written on them, so you can spot us in a crowd!

Will everyone be sad?

Definitely not. Although we’ve all been bereaved, we aim to have lots of fun at meet ups and chat about lots of things, not just grief. You won’t be asked or expected to share your grief story unless you want to.

What will we do?

Most of our meet ups are activity based, so we are doing something and not just sitting around chatting. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!

How do I sign up?

You don’t need to tell us you’re coming along – feel free to just turn up! If you want to chat to someone before coming along, email us using the form on this page, and we can always meet you beforehand.
