Wellbeing Wednesday

“Death Cafe”

An evening out to a café conjures up images of coffee, cakes, conversation and convivial company. But what about an evening out at a Death Café?! Well, it includes all these things together with the opportunity to discuss the most taboo subjects of our time and our society: the fact that we are all mortal, that one day we will all die and the meaning that this has for each of us.  Come and explore your thoughts and experiences of death – it won’t be as scarey as you might think

This event will be led by Sheila Pope who is a counsellor in private practice in Burgess Hill.  Qualifying in 2003, she recently returned to studying at the Link Centre and has completed the foundation certificate and all three clinical years towards a second Diploma.  She has worked in a hostel for the homeless and offered counselling services at a centre supporting adults with learning disabilities.  The death of her mother when she was five and subsequent bereavements gave Sheila the keen desire to make the most of her remaining time, which is one reason why she is keen to encourage others to engage in conversations about death and what it means for us.

In line with ‘Wellbeing Wednesday tradition’, there will also be time to chat and have some light refreshments.  Meet other like-minded people, Link Centre tutors and current and past Link Centre students. At 8.15 there will be a talk / questions and answers session on the Link Centre’s part-time Counselling and Psychotherapy courses for anyone that is interested.
