She lost her mum at the age of 25. Natalie joined the Nottingham Facebook group in 2019 and attended a virtual zoom meet up.
She currently works as a music therapist and is also a qualified primary school teacher.
In her spare time, Natalie enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, going for walks in nature, day trips, playing the keyboard/piano and spa days. She is also a keyboardist at her local church.
In her final year of studies, Natalie’s own grieving journey inspired her to research and write about how culture, grief and music therapy intertwine.
Natalie looks forward to joining the LTAL team as a host. Most of all, she looks forward to facilitating opportunities for individuals to connect with others who ‘get it’.
She now works as a property lawyer.
Shauna is part of a social netball league and plays weekly with her team. She is also a keen cinema fan, likes an escape room, and enjoys a pub quiz! When not doing any of the above, she likes to get away somewhere with a good book, good food and some sun.
Shauna lost her mum at the age of 21, and joined a Let’s Talk About Loss meet-up in her 20s in Nottingham. She is now looking forward to providing that same opportunity for friendship and support as a Host.
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.
