Introducing Grieving Hearts Podcast
I am your host Victoria Battman and this is Grieving Hearts. A podcast to support families of traumatic grief. Any Bereavement or loss is traumatic however traumatic bereavement occurs when the loss is sudden violent and unexpected and it carries potential for longer term psychological problems for the bereaved.
My Grief Journey started in 2019 when my son Josh was killed in a hit and run by an elderly unlicensed driver. After struggling to find appropriate counselling support for myself and family we found ourselves left to deal with our grief alone. after contacting many professional bereavement counselling services and having to relive our trauma by explaining the circumstances of the loss of Josh to then be added to a waiting list for support. Research shows that early interventions of support for families of traumatic grief are paramount in helping to preventing long-term psychological problems.
My aim for this podcast is to help families feel less alone with their grief. I want to bring together a community of support for each other. In the hope that when families feel ready to listen to our podcast we will be able to help and support each other through sharing our own personal experiences.
Our guests will speak about:
The loss of their loved one and the circumstances of their death.
After-care support received from professional services.
The mental health support available to families of traumatic grief.
Self-help advice from families living with traumatic grief such as any learned therapies or techniques or daily routines they have found have helped with calming their mind and processing their emotions anxieties panic attacks and depression.
