Book your place

Please book your place on line, or if you wish to pay on invoice, please complete and return our course booking form.

We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.

I feel incredibly well informed on a very emotive and wide ranging subject.
