One of the hardest things you will ever have to do is grieve for someone who is still living. This blog discusses the grief process of the loss of my mum. I really hope it is helpful to others experiencing this type of grief.
I'm Rebecca and I am a Public Speaker, Writer and Podcaster. My main aim is to raise awareness of the challenges that carers and individuals face; and to champion the best life possible for those living with dementia, ill-mental health and those who care for them.
Having formerly been a young carer for over a decade I offer an insight into the complexities of being a parent to your own parent.
I hold a postgraduate degree in the Psychology of Dementia Care from the University of St Andrews and a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies from The Counselling & Psychotherapy Training Academy. I also acted as the North London Dementia Representative for Alzheimer's Society and co-chaired an East Sussex Dementia Action Alliance.
I have conducted workshops for organisations such as Arsenal Football Club; Ogilvy; Alzheimer's Society; London Fire Brigade and Mishcon De Reya.
