Hit Property Show Makes Space for Grief Recovery Specialist
Posted on 23rd June 2020 at 08:25
Today, “Your Home Made Perfect” a cutting-edge property programme that uses virtual reality to transform homes in the blink on an eye, will be looking back to last year when it took on the challenge of transforming an old garage into a space to help broken hearts to heal.
Long before Lockdown, Shrewsbury-based Grief Recovery specialist Lisa Richards dreamed of running her own business at home, but little did she realise her dreams would come true in such a public way. The programme shows how an unused, unutilised space at the end of her garden is converted to create the room Lisa could only imagine.
Lisa and her family were one of only eight selected to take part in the series. However, tonight when the programme will be shown at 8pm on BBC 2, Lisa will be continuing her grief training to transfer her expertise onto her own small screen to educate anyone suffering from grief and loss during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Lisa said: “I became a specialist to teach the programme that helped me to recover from a series of tragic events many years ago. However challenging life might be, I know it is possible to recover and thrive, not just survive life after loss. If I can inspire anyone to take that first step, then that really would be a great dream to have come true, too.
“Whilst taking part in the show was a great experience, we decided to do it because we couldn’t agree how best to change our home to meet our growing needs. We were utterly amazed by the innovative designs that the show’s two architects, Robert Jamieson and Laura Clarke created and magically appeared before our very eyes. They gave us a real insight as to how we could bring all our hopes together in one scheme and fortunately it all came together in May 2019. During Lockdown that investment in our dreams really has paid dividends enabling us to work, live and enjoy the space we have created,” continued Lisa.
If you want to find out just how the Richards family transformed their home, then you will have to watch the show, but for anyone struggling post Lockdown, Lisa would like to emphasise that there is hope of creating a better future for ourselves and she believes there has never been a better time than now to start to make it a reality.
