Hey Redesigners and welcome to another episode of Women Over 50 - A Life Redesigned.
I am your host Shelly Drymon and this is the podcast where I have conversations with women over 50 who are in the world doing amazing things, and busting through the stereotypes of what it means to be a woman over 50 today.
Silke Herwald is the Grief Specialist and inventor of the ‘Grief to Love’ blueprint.
Silke supports bereaved women, teaches grief counsellors, Hypnotherapists and Psychologists her groundbreaking ‘Grief To Love’ blueprint. She is an international speaker and grief awareness advocate.
Over the past 12 years Silke has assisted hundreds of grieving clients online, in person, and with her ‘Grief To Love’ courses.
Silke understands the many misconceptions about grief and that there is a lot of unhelpful and even harmful grief advice. There is a lot more to grief than just 5 stages…
Silke developed the unique and proven “Grief To Love” framework from her experience of supporting bereaved women and presented it at the 2019 AHA world conference to an international audience of Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Psychologists and Hypnotherapists.
Four years ago Silke developed an even deeper understanding of grief when she lost her only sister to cancer and supported her parents and brother-in-law through that loss.
After not having seen her parents due to Covid travel restrictions for two years, Silke got the 4am phone call no one wants to get to get on the flight nobody wants to be on.
Only ten days after her therapy dog passed, Silke’s dad had suddenly died.
Silke truly knows what grief feels like and what bereaved parents and widows go through.
Silke has mastered the fine art of talking about grief in a deeply insightful yet lighthearted way.
