Wendy presented at our staff conference on ‘Managing Grief and Loss’ to approximately 300 counsellors, and we had such wonderful feedback, including –

“Wendy was exceptional…she gifted me so much professionally and personally”.

"Wendy’s beautiful, melodious voice, combined with her exceptional clinical knowledge, experience and humility spoke to us all."

"I took away a meaningful and incredibly helpful approach to working with clients, as well as beautiful learnings on how we can manage grief and loss in our own lives. Thank you Wendy!"


Thank you so much again for your wonderful session.

Wendy and I have spoken about gruesome and distressing topics and yet the atmosphere is utterly life-affirming. Wendy's wisdom and her grasp on what's important are extraordinary. Meeting her is memorable and thought-provoking.

Thank you again for presenting for us. We have received a lot of positive feedback about your presentation. Stemming from this, the Law Society of NSW’s President will be writing an opinion piece for Lawyer’s Weekly where she talks about grief and why it is a relevant topic for solicitors. 


Personally, I have been hearing from solicitors about the ways your presentation resonated with them, and I have been reminded of the different forms that grief can take and the various triggers to the grieving experience.


Wendy, I'm so impressed with your work and really thankful for your generosity in working with us.

Thank you so much for presenting for the Mito community today. It was really fantastic to have your expertise shared with the Mito community on a really important topic. 


I know how beneficial the talk was for those that joined us today, a few of whom have lost children to the disease in the last year, and a few who are at the end-of-life stage themselves.
