This one-day interactive workshop is designed to provide a helpful underpinning of skills, awareness and knowledge for anyone who encounters bereavement and loss within counselling contexts. It considers bereavement and loss as an unavoidable part of the human experience and as a key reason for clients to seek counselling support within both private practice and an array of agency settings.
