This talk will explore what grief means to us personally. A model of bereavement will be discussed and the reasons for such varied responses to it will be examined. Ways to respond to and support a grieving friend will be looked at, ending with ways to keep ourselves well particularly at difficult emotional times.

Fenella's background is working in the caring services and latterly being a Manager and Leader of a Mental Health Service. Following completion of an MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change, Fenella has worked as an Executive Coach.
