“I don’t think I would be smiling today if it wasn’t for Grief Encounter. My mum died suddenly when I was 12 and we never got to say goodbye. Several months later, my grandmother insisted I attend a Grief Encounter workshop – against my wishes. I never looked back, after several one-to-one couselling sessions and attending many other workshops, my life opened up and here I am today!”
