Hunting For Rainbows - Emma Gray
Play • 28 min

At the age of 35, Emma Gray’s husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Not only was she faced with losing the love of her life, but overnight had to come to terms with the reality of bringing up two children alone, becoming the family breadwinner and the carer to her partner. Emma found the experience isolating and lonely as she battled with her demons whilst everyone else appeared to be getting on with their seemingly happy, normal, family lives. Yet, even on the most challenging of days, Emma discovered what she called ‘Rainbow Hunting’ – looking for the smallest break in the clouds to find moments of  hope and joy.

Now widowed, Emma founded Rainbow Hunting in order to use her personal and professional experience - as a solicitor and trainee counsellor - to help others. She takes a holistic approach by inspiring people to  ensure the practicalities are taken care of, whilst helping them to find their own rainbows and learn to dance in the rain.

This is frank and honest conversation on managing grief, the co-existence of joy and pain and how looking for little moments of light can keep you going when you're not sure how.

*Trigger warning: This episode covers topics including cancer, grief and depression.
