Episode 3 – Grief & Guilt with Dr Tom
Feelings of guilt come hand in hand with grief all too often, and it can be hard to understand why.
In this week’s episode, we were joined by clinical psychologist Dr Tom Cliffe to discuss why feelings are guilt are so common when we’re grieving and what we can do to navigate them.
We asked Dr. Tom a lot of our own questions about guilt and grief, specifically in the instances of the different types of guilt you experience, such as not being there when your parent passed, when you’ve had a difficult relationship with them, feelings of relief after they’ve died and all of the complexities that come with this. We also delve into how guilt can have a profound impact on our behaviours as an adult and how this can affect the relationships you have with others and with yourself.
We’d love for you to reach out and let us know if you listened or if you’d like us to cover a specific grief topic in any of our upcoming episodes.
