People who attended previous sessions said:
"The subject of grief is not something that's widely taught or spoken about. I can't believe how much I learnt in that one session alone."
"It was so well structured, and the presenters so empathetic. I feel it covered my feelings since my son died."
"I viewed your last grief session, and found it to be so warm, and comforting really. Nothing takes the pain away really, but listening to you was like you knew what journey I would be on."
