Some feedback from attendees: A group of teachers from a local Secondary School, Bournemouth


“Just the right balance between friendly and professional. Joy and John are very knowledgeable”

“Good the sessions were just the right length and breaks at good times”

“Very friendly not just there to deliver contents but listened to what we had to say, very caring”

“It was good to start with what stress and anxiety are and then share our experiences later when we were more comfortable”

The ways the course was useful…

“A better understanding of why I feel the way I do in certain situations so I feel less weak”

“Gave me some tools to recognise irrational behaviour’s and ways to stop myself and change my behaviour in a positive way”

“Helped me to acknowledge and verbalise my behaviour’s so that I can start to change them”

“Recognising that things I don’t think are affecting me, are, and in ways I hadn’t realised”

I would recommend this workshop to others because…

“It is great to acknowledge that our feelings are real and normal and it is not just us that are experiencing them”

“I now have practical strategies to use when I am feeling stressed or anxious so I feel more in control of my emotions already”

“It is a good opportunity to take time to focus on yourself”

All workshops, training and groups are held in our beautiful log cabin. ‘ Peace Haven.’ Here we will provide a safe and caring space in which to relax & enjoy.

Understanding the Complexity of Grief and Loss

1.5 hours – Online session via Zoom

My 1.5 hour online session ‘Understanding the Complexity of Grief and Loss’ will help you:

  • if you are personally experiencing grief and loss, or supporting others experiencing grief and loss, or just want to learn more about it
  • to deal with the trauma of the loss of a loved one
  • to understand the complex process of grief
  • to develop ways to cope and move forward

A review written to me from a previous session:

” I decided to do the course as I was recommended to you by a friend. Whilst family and friends have been brilliant they don’t totally understand how I feel. What helped me the most was talking to others who truly understand grief.

Afterwards I felt exhausted (by my grief) but keen to think about ways to help me grieve healthily.

I would recommend you to others as it was a good session and you are very caring and empathetic and because you have lived this experience you are is able to give your thoughts so honestly and freely.”
