Training Programmes

As specialists in our field, we have many years of experience delivering expert training to other professionals. Our training reflects the nature of our work and is delivered by experienced counsellors and therapists.

We have designed and delivered many courses to enable others who work with bereaved children or the death of the child to feel more confident and skilled.  These include our modular programme for Supporting Children with Bereavement and Loss (builds up to 5 days), and Working with Loss (6 days).   Other training delivered includes: for health professionals working with loss, managing bereavement and anticipatory grief in the workplace, and supervision sessions for teams setting up a bereavement support service (see also ‘Supervision’).


“I just wanted to thank you, Kathy and the ladies that arranged and presented the training course these past four sessions. I found them very informative, very trainee friendly and encouraged me to look further into areas of interest. It was also wonderful to meet and share experiences with other professionals, such a fabulous group to do the training with.”
