Lizzie Pickering is a Speaker, Grief Investigator, Film and Podcast producer. Her main work is offering Grief Guidance to companies through presentations, podcasts and 1:1 sessions. Educating people about grief and helping them back to work following major life changes, from bereavement, to diagnosis, divorce and workplace change.
When Lizzie Pickering's young son Harry died in 2000, she set out on a journey to understand how she could survive her grief and learn to live with it. In When Grief Equals Love, she details the lessons she’s learned from her own experiences and those of others, who share their thoughts in this moving and tender book. Lizzie looks at the myth of closure, survivor’s energy and cumulative grief – when life experiences pile up and become too much to bear. She includes interviews with bereaved friends, who share their own insights, and she provides a toolkit based on what has helped her and what she recommends to those she now helps with grief guidance.
