TLC Training from the Soul Midwives School - Comfort, Holistic Support and Reassurance at the End of Life
This training is designed to enhance the care offered by anyone, to people at the end of life. At the forefront of the training is compassionate support to the dying and to those with progressive or life-limiting illness. It involves a unique examination of the stages of dying and offers simple tools and gentle therapeutic techniques to aid comfort.
TLC training is based on the pioneering movement of the Soul Midwives School founded by Felicity Warner (voted 2017 End of Life Care Champion by The National Council for Palliative Care and the Royal College of Nursing and End of Life Doula of the Year 2017-Good Funeral Awards).
Soul midwives are non-medical, holistic companions who guide and support the dying in order to facilitate a gentle and tranquil death. The School’s gentle dying techniques in holistic palliative care have now been adopted in many hospices throughout the UK.
• Four stages of dying framework • Simple therapeutic techniques to calm agitation, anxiety and tension including soothing touch • Listening skills • Sitting with a patient during the final hours
This day will include handouts, a TLC certificate from the Soul Midwives School and entry towards their practitioner training.
