She loves musical theatre, Popmaster on Radio 2 and watching any challenge-based TV show – from Bake Off to Drag Race! Having lost her Dad in 2019, she sought help and advice from bereaved friends so would love to meet up and share with those who are just starting on their journey or who may be a little further down the line.
Emily is over the moon to be a Host for Let’s Talk About Loss in Rochester. She works with young people from different cultures and countries in her role as EAL Teacher in an Independent School. In her free time, she enjoys doing martial arts – Karate has been important in helping her through bereavement. She also enjoys writing, which again has been supporting her through grief. She lost her Dad in 2017, and her Grandad in 2021. She is passionate about reducing the stigma that surrounds bereavement. She has found a passion for understanding and advocating for mental health as well as grief, and reducing the stigmas that surround them both, as they are both intertwined.
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.
