In this episode I welcome back Lara Casanova to discuss her most recent book, “Loss, Love and Lessons: Healing pet loss and grief”. Lara is well placed to discuss this topic as a professional counsellor specialising in grief and loss, a yoga teacher, life coach and, of course, an animal lover. Pet loss is a form of disenfranchised grief which means it is often underplayed or dismissed by society yet it is very real, as all pet lovers know. Lara talks about how to navigate this sad time in our lives; her book provides very practical tips to help us walk through the grief and ultimately come out the other side appreciative of the lessons our pets have taught us.
Lara also shares with us some beautiful tips for self-care and self love, another important part of anyone’s journey through grief.
