Making Waves

Since the inception of Apart of Me - our multi-award-winning Bafta-nominated service for grieving young people - we have gotten a lot of lovely mentions in the media. We have been featured on TV, radio and online by the likes of the BBC, The Guardian, Huffington Post and ITN.

Louis, one of the co-founders of Apart of Me, is an expert in child psychotherapy and grief with nearly 20 years of experience working with vulnerable children. In February 2020, he received a Points of Light Award from the Prime Minister’s Office in recognition of his work with Apart of Me.
