A training event for counsellors focusing on grief arising particularly through the time of Covid-19 restrictions, which can deny the usual and natural impulses, ways of being there and responding to the needs of a loved one during hospitalisation, critical illness and subsequent loss. For some this may result in patterns of delayed, inhibited bereavement and patterns of complicated grief.
The workshop is designed to explore various models of bereavement which focus on complex or traumatic grief. The emphasis is on emotional awareness in the body and somatic focused skills in working towards completion of grief through gesture or action which can be deeply resourcing but can also help resolve patterns of activation due to traumatic grief and bereavement complications as expressed through the body.
Lunch: This break will be approx. 45 minutes and we therefore suggest you bring a packed lunch and a drink.
There is a tearoom and two pubs on the High Street if you wish to explore the village.
Morning break: Teas, coffee and biscuits. Afternoon break: Cake!
