Trish is a nurse and midwife with qualifications in counselling and loss and grief studies.

This included in-hospital care as well as supporting families through the Wesley’s Bereavement Support Program. Trish completed her studies and went on to lecture in the Loss & Grief program at the University of Qld. More recently Trish has been in private practice as a grief counselor, with much of her work focusing on supporting families who are faced with the death of a child. She currently co-ordinates the Bereavement Support Program at the Mater Mothers Hospital.

The Seminar begins with our guest speaker followed by morning tea and workshops.
