End of Life and Green Funerals
Tuesday 8 February 7:30pm (London time)
With a background in education and psychotherapy, Kate works with her son and daughter-in-law as a funeral director and incorporates compassionate companioning into her work with the bereaved and the pre-bereaved.
Her introduction to death and dying, however, started in childhood as her father was a vicar. As a child she always preferred the funerals to the weddings finding them so much more meaningful. It was when she lost her partner fifteen years ago that her work turned to funeral celebrancy.
One of her passions is to demystify death and facilitate conversations around the subject so that when the time comes to say goodbye to someone, or to say goodbye ourselves, the transition can be as positive as possible.
In this dialogue we will explore the sensitive subject of end of life, funerals and grief — and how to bring in true and appropriate support and care.
