Languages of Loss: A psychotherapist’s journey through grief by Sasha Bates
Sasha Bates is a psychotherapist, journalist and former documentary filmmaker. Eighteen years in the TV industry saw her write, direct and produce series as varied as Omnibus, Grand Designs, Live and Kicking, and How to Look Good Naked, alongside an ongoing side-line in travel journalism. When her husband, Bill, died unexpectedly at just 56, Sasha turned back to writing to help her navigate the new and unwelcome world into which she had been thrust. She now teaches workshops about grief to therapists, and to other grievers.

‘We need to name what we’re going through’: The role of grief in coping with Covid-19 by Alice Vincent – Penguin Articles
Griefcast tackles subjects we’d usually tiptoe around and faces them head-on. Using a little bit of humour, guests discuss their experiences of losing someone and the feelings that came with it. It covers perspectives on all sorts of different situations, including losing a parent as a teenager or child, sibling loss, parent loss and the death of a child. There’s even an episode on losing a dog.

The Super Power of Trauma by Jeff Krasno and Hala Khouri. When we don’t fully process our traumas we get trapped in the past, and events in our present can trigger emotions and sensations that impede our ability to function — let alone thrive. But with a thoughtful, delicate balance of embodied practices and personal reflection we can begin to heal our traumas, leading us to live a more joyful life, and maybe even help others to do the same. Hala Khouri, co-founder of Off the Mat, Into The World joins us for an actionable conversation on a difficult subject.
