What our Customers are saying

Liz’s Grief Session with our company was informative and practical, helping us to manage all aspects of grief in the workplace. Liz guided us through welcoming staff members back to work after a significant loss & supporting the team on how to approach the difficult subject. Some key takeaways from our group were the Do’s and Don’ts that Liz provided when speaking to someone going through a significant loss in their life.

These tips were not only helpful in the workplace, but also a great guide on how to navigate the difficult topic in day-to-day life. As a result of our session with Liz, we are a more grief literate company. Thanks Liz!

Hi Liz, I am so sorry for the Friday evening email, but I couldn’t let tonight pass by without thanking you a million times for last night. The resounding response this morning, the conversations in the staffroom with those who were at your talk, but also those who were not there but were listening to our experience of your talk, was amazing. Also….. the stories that emerged this morning of grief from staff members who have never spoken before… we just spoke and talked and wow, the topic used to scare me a little and I honestly feel so much more ready in facing it, but also so aware of how much more I have to and want to learn.

Have a lovely weekend Liz and honestly, thanks so much again.

As a Cruse Bereavement Volunteer, I have found this training invaluable and - after 35 years working as a primary teacher and headteacher - I know it will further equip me when I start my Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy in September at xxxx.
I am indebted to Liz for sharing her knowledge, skill, compassion and wisdom with us. She has such heart for this work and has inspired me to continue to strive to be the best version of myself, in service of my clients.
