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.

Please be aware that this workshop takes place over two sessions: the first on Saturday 13th November at 9am-12pm UK time, and the second the week after on Saturday 20th November at 9am-12pm UK time.

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).

Course content includes:

  • Four stages of dying framework
  • Simple therapeutic techniques to calm agitation, anxiety and tension including soothing touch
  • Listening skills
  • Sitting alongside during the final hours

TLC workshop includes handouts, a TLC certificate from the Soul Midwives' School and entry towards the practitioner training.


We will not be recording this workshop. One of the unique aspects of the College's online events is that they are highly interactive. Participants are encouraged to discuss and share with the tutor and the group. These sharings can be very personal, and some may not feel comfortable with them being recorded.

"Mandy Preece was terrific and taught us skills needed when caring for those friends (people) that are dying. She spoke from both what the Soul Midwives shared and personal experiences. Everyone shared different experiences due to the warm and open tutoring."
