Testimonials

"I was fortunate enough to be put in contact with Judy when my mother was first diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. She made a real bond with my mother, who is a very private person, but made her feel that she was still an important member of the family and valued.

Judy is a very giving person and was very thoughtful and caring towards my mother, I feel that she dealt with any situation in a very sensible and positive manner. I never felt the slightest qualm in leaving them together all day knowing that my mother was much more positive and happy by the end of a session with her.

I would not hesitate to recommend Judy in any caring environment. Her positive and sensitive attitude and general good sense always shine through."

Grief in the Workplace

During the mid 1980’s in the U.S.A. it was estimated that $75 billion dollars per year were lost due to grief in the workplace. Whatever the rate of exchange – that comes to a lot of ££££’s.

 

Most of us will experience bereavement at some point during our working lives. It can be a life changing experience, or a moment of discomfort hastily forgotten. However, when bereavement occurs in the workplace everyone around may be affected, and productivity can come to a sudden grinding halt. Anything that disrupts work potentially threatens the survival of the organisation. Compassion and practical issues can find themselves at loggerheads and unless both can find a way to work side by side, the fallout can be devastating to all concerned.

 

Grief can enter through many doors of a company, both in the loss of someone close to a key employee, or the member of a team. The symptoms of grief conflict with recognised workplace behaviour and in any other circumstance they would be considered an illness, this makes it all the more surprising that most organisations do not have a template for bereavement.

 

This workshop, which can be fitted into an early morning or lunch time  will assist the HR department and Managers to manoeuvre safely through the minefield of human emotions that can threaten to disrupt the most professional of workplaces.
