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.

“An excellent, informative workshop and questions that I had before the workshop have been answered. I feel better equipped to support the child in my class whose mother has recently died. Thank you – I will be recommending to others.” Course delegate
