Facilitated Support Groups

“Distance doesn’t mean that we can’t share grief together”

Are you feeling ambushed, or abandoned and alone with your grief?

Would you like to find others to grieve with?

Would you like to understand the symptoms of your grief so that you can find additional ways of coping?

The services listed below may facilitate your grief journey by enabling you to share your experiences with others and manage your current issues through input from me and the shared wisdom of the group.  This opportunity will involve learning as well as a chance for you to share your story. 

Through the death of all that we hold most dear, may we find life.

Facilitated Support Groups:

Surviving Grief groups for adults: this is a time-bound, closed group of up to 8 regular participants that is customised to the needs of the group.  Please enquire.

Online Conversation Cafés:

Dementia Caregivers Support Group (an ongoing drop-in group – limited-size)

Using a particular model for sharing experiences, this is a safe space to share the vast range of emotions that people naturally feel when caregiving for someone with dementia, and to share tips and ideas for coping.

Meaningful Farewells (an ongoing drop-in group – limited-size)

In this facilitated, free-flowing discussion you can learn and share ideas of meaningful activities to support the dying and their families. The ideas will be captured, typed up afterwards and emailed to participants.

Grave Talk (an ongoing drop-in group – limited-size)

This resource uses reflective questions for discussion on the following themes: Life, Death, Funerals, Grief, and Cultural Influences which shape our thinking about these topics.

The participants choose from a menu of questions they would like to discuss, based on the themes available and the needs of the group.
