Clemmie Clough, childhood bereavement and life after the tsunami

Episode 81

I often hear grieving people describe their experience of grief ‘like a tsunami’ that just washes over them. This week’s guest, Clemmie Clough, experienced the devastation first-hand of the 2004 tsunami when she was just a child. It was an event that would rob her of her mother and change the trajectory of her life.

Clemmie talks about how the trauma of that event has stayed with her and how, as a young adult, she had to address the imprint of the event on her, both physically and psychologically.

We talk about how alone people can feel after a very public community disaster, the importance of physical support and how we need to continue to open up these conversations of loss and grief, even years after loss.

Keep in the loop!
