Every family has a story with Julia Samuel MBE

*Trigger warning* This episode covers the loss of loved ones. What is grief? Is there a right or wrong way to grieve? And what are the different approaches to dealing with it? Today’s guest is bestselling psychotherapist, Julia Samuel MBE, who brought such warmth and wisdom to these really tough subjects. Julia believes that every family has a story - so much so that she’s titled her most recent book just that. In this warm and informative episode, Julia and Kate explore some of the common issues that can arise when living in blended families: what we inherit and how we can help support each other. Julia has a talent at simplifying complicated topics and offers such useful advice into how families can face challenges together.
