Adjusting from “We” to “Me”
By Lara Noik a"h
The loss of a partner is one of the hardest losses that we will encounter in our lifetime. One may say that it is the price of love. One’s world changes in every way, as one is left to navigate the journey through grief, sorrow, and loss.

In this webinar, we will look at:
The unique challenges of losing ones’ spouse
The grief process, specifically guilt, anger, and loneliness
The journey towards finding yourself once again

In her short 42 years of life Lara a"h accomplished more than most do in a full lifetime. She worked as head social worker for the Chevrah Kadisha in Johannesburg for 7 years before starting her own successful private practice with a special interest in the fields of mental health, resilience, and relationships. She utilised an integrative approach incorporating the principles of innate mental health, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and relationship modalities. She believed in the innate resilience that exists within each human being and spent her career counselling individuals, couples, and groups from this standpoint. In addition she also ran the Marriage Prepare Programme for many years, worked at Papillon -a mental health recovery centre, ran online grief groups and was a co- founder of ‘The Ki’, an organisation which offers affordable therapy to the larger Johannesburg Jewish Community.
