Why Choose Leanne as your Certified Grief Recovery Specialist?
Living in a regional community such as Esperance, Leanne has witnessed many people trying to cope with their grief from events such as sickness, redundancies, other job losses, suicide, natural disasters such as fires and flooding, and the challenges of living in a remote community - just to name a few. Leanne has also experienced many of her own personal losses and has had so much support to be able to heal from it all, she wants to be able to encourage others that it IS possible to have life through loss.
