TESTIMONIALS

This year Southern NSW Health District has been fortunate to work with Nathan & Wendy as they provided professional development for our staff through facilitation of both online and in-person grief and loss workshops. 

Throughout our time working together, Nathan & Wendy have been both professional, relatable and very easy to work with. 

 

When facilitating the workshops, Nathan & Wendy were both open, honest, skilled and very engaging. 

 

The discussions were rich in content and including learnings around current theories and models as well as practical tips and resources for staff working in this space. 

 

The feedback received from staff who attended the sessions was 100% positive with staff wishing for more! 

 

We would very much welcome the opportunity to work with Nathan & Wendy again in the future.

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."

"We 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.

Nathan provided excellent grief training to the staff of  SWSLHD Towards Zero Suicides. His wealth of knowledge and passion was evident during this training, and he was also able to keep the group engaged throughout the entire training day.

TOWARDS ZERO SUICIDE

Nathan MacArthur does not disappoint. I have not attended a better presentation on this challenging subject matter in the last twenty years. His presentation style is open and engaging. His depth of knowledge in this field, borne of experience and study, is vast. Nathan delivers his narrative in a manner that is reflective, encouraging, considered and accessible. He is able to create genuine moments of poignancy whilst maintaining relevance to the clinical environment.  My head and heart were fully committed.  A valuable experience.

ROYAL PRINCE ALFRED HOSPITAL

An extremely useful session by Wendy & Nathan. I am a clinical nurse educator that works in a medical / oncology ward and also a neurosurgical ward and found it rewarding to have a refresher of knowledge and theory, and think about the bigger picture of the current world health situation + its impact on the process of grief and bereavement.
