TLC 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 those with progressive or life-limiting illness. The training focusses on holistic care, listening, the stages of dying framework and sitting with people in the last moments of life. TLC involves a unique examination of the stages of dying and offers simple tools and gentle therapeutic techniques to aid comfort.
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. The TLC training is an approved course from the Soul Midwives’ School being offered nationally throughout the UK.
TLC 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 by the Good Funeral Awards).
