15. Grief in Real Time

More of Alice’s thoughts on grief brought about by the sudden loss of her family dog. Alice talks about the grieving process as it settles in, discussing communal grief, the humanising nature of loss and how it’s so damn hard to say the right thing to people who are suffering.

Welcome to Dark Coffee, the podcast that takes a light approach to our dark times.

Join wellbeing advocate Alice Lyons as she attempts to normalise the conversation around mental health, from suicide to satisfaction and everything in between.

Dark Coffee aims to create a safe space to explore dark topics with curiosity, compassion and courage to empower people to build their mental strength, resilience and sense of wellbeing.
