Living Well And Dying Well: Counselling Older People – Helen Kewell

September 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST

Helen Kewell

Event Details


Older people rarely feature in counselling literature, and the very old barely at all. When I was training, I was as perplexed about this as I was disappointed. Counselling older adults, and those at the very end of their lives, is challenging, life-affirming, and, with the rapid rate of ageing, vital work. With this interview, I hope to inspire others to come into this work, using my own experiences to bring it to life, and to open the debate with colleagues already experienced in this area about how we improve access to and uptake of this service.
