Ashgate Hospice > Becoming an orphan in your 30s with Rebecca Soffer

Internationally recognised author and speaker, Rebecca Soffer began her journey into grief unexpectedly in her early 30s after her mother was killed in a car crash and her father died of a heart attack. The weight of this loss at such a young age left Rebecca feeling untethered.

In this episode, Rebecca candidly shares her deeply personal story of navigating loss and finding comfort in shared understanding. From forming a monthly dinner party called WWDP (Women With Dead Parents) to co-founding the Modern Loss movement, Rebecca’s journey highlights the power of community in the face of grief.

Rebecca’s experiences inspired her to create a platform dedicated to removing the stigma surrounding grief and providing support and resources for those navigating their own journey of loss. Through heartfelt conversations and genuine human connection, Rebecca offers insights into the universal nature of grief and the strength of human connection in times of loss.

Rebecca’s book, The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience, is available to purchase on Amazon in the UK and elsewhere.
