Bereavement, Grief, and Loss in the Workplace Workshop

Multiple dates

We all encounter people who have been bereaved during our working lives - be it clients, customers, or colleagues - and even the most confident person can find it hard to know what to say. Our workshops are designed for anyone in a professional role, who wants to understand the issues surrounding bereavement and how to communicate with clients, work colleagues, employees, patients, and customers after someone close to them has died.

The training days are interactive and informative and provide an opportunity to have your questions answered about this usually taboo subject.

Facilitated by

Mary Le Hegarat (MBACP)

Registered and Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor and a member of the Association of Bereavement Service Coordinators (ABSCO), National Bereavement Alliance (NBC) and a member of EMDR Association UK
