Please note: This workshop has been designed as a follow up to our "Loss and Bereavement Awareness" training day. It is recommended that people attend "Loss and Bereavement Awareness" first to gain an understanding of the subject area; however, participants working as a counsellor or therapist would be able to attend the advanced workshop without attending our foundation course provided that they:

  • have a basic grasp of some bereavement theory and what grief is
  • are familiar with using person-centred counselling materials
  • are able to use basic counselling skills.

If you have any questions about the suitability of this workshop please contact us via and we'll call you to discuss further.
