A young widow’s journey through grief and loss


PODCASTS: Melanie Leamy shares how she has coped with the death of her husband Paul and how grief has changed her experience of living.

In part one of these two podcasts, Melanie explains how she and her husband met and the experience of navigating through his illness and the end of his life. In part two, she describes what she’s learnt and what her bereavement journey has been like so far.

It has profoundly shaped both her sense of the world and her existence in it. She began writing a very personal blog about what she has gone through in order to make sense of her loss and to share what she’s learnt with others. A complementary therapist by training, Melanie is also on a mission to bring alternative therapies into palliative settings.
