What is Death Cafe

“Never has there been such a need to talk about death and dying”

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.

Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Our Death Cafes are always offered:

– On a not for profit basis

– In an accessible, respectful and confidential space

– With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action

– Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

Why talk about DEATH???

Stop the waiting…

Do not occupy yourself with waiting, waiting for the new normal, waiting for social interaction, waiting to feel better, waiting to engage with purpose and passion again.

NO, pull yourself towards yourself- give yourself some tough love until you are strong, until you can feel that heart beat in your quiet space- welcome and wipe those lonely longing tears and get up from waiting… your WHY is still there, your HOW is different now…

Stop the waiting and engage with what IS, in a new way. Occupy your mind with creative HOW’S- fully engage with behavior that manifest your desire… let it become true in your mind first, if you could see it and feel it once before- you can create it again and again.

Let us be innovative and creative in our approach to adversity- let us be resilient in trails and tribulations- let us bear with this HOW and fully engage a new.


Above of Below the line Mentality?

Such an amazing illustration of victor mindset vs victim mindset.

A victor operate ABOVE the line:

they take Ownership, are Accountable and Responsible. They are able to EMPOWER themself and enjoy RESULTS. They are the captain of their own ship.

Victims operate BELOW the line:

they Blame others, make Excuses and choose to live in Denial…. Victims make their BED and sleep in it- living with excuses and good reasons why things do not work.

Are you operating above the line or below the line?

Trauma and Structional Disassociation

Words from a trauma survivor: “Without realizing it, I fought to keep my two worlds separated. Without ever knowing why, I made sure, whenever possible, that nothing passed between the compartmentalization I had created between the day child and the night child.” —Marilyn Van Derbur (2004, p. 26).

Trauma is not the event, but what is left, in the mind, body system after the traumatic event took place. It’s the flashbacks, the memories, the unconscious triggers or destructive/ unhealthy behaviour. Building a bridge between thew worlds inside us leads to deep emotional healing and freedom.


The Bridge Between Psychology and Spirituality

Without spiritually, psychology cannot really free us or lead us to the deepest truths about ourselves and without psychology, spirituality can lead to grandiosity, delusion, and an attempt to escape from reality.

One cornerstone of transformational soul work is learning to be and stay present…

Presence (awareness, mindfulness), the practice of self-observation (gained from self-knowledge), and understanding what one’s experiences mean (an accurate interpretation provided by a larger context such as a community or spiritual system) are the three basic elements needed for transformational work.

The Quiet Mind…

The quiet mind is the source of inner guidance that gives us the ability to perceive reality exactly as it it. It allows us to be receptive to an inner knowing that can guid our actions. But just as we are seldom fully in our bodies or in our hearts, we seldom have access to the quiet, spacious quality of the mind….many flee inwards due to fear aspects of the outside world.

Who and I…?

I am a compassionate registered counselor, who understands that one of the most difficult and longest journeys in life, is from the head to the heart. The journey into the heart is the future and our only way to create the future. I am an experienced trauma counsellor and in my practice, I work from an integrative holistic approach: mind, body and spirit (I call it the mystery).

I have a person- centered approach, am trained in Brainspotting (trauma reprocessing), solution focused, IMAGO couples counselling techniques, EQ development etc and ready to gently journey with you to wholeness and wholehearted living. Bon Voyage!I am well read, researched and practiced in integrative holistic health. I offer you a safe space, a secure base to share and experience care. My hope is that our counseling relationship will unlock you and help you to break out of patterns that keep you stuck in destructive stagnant behavior and relationships.

Your “story” is important for your healing…It is my hope for you to feel supported when working through the tough stuff, to become a truer version of yourself.

To learn and understand the unique way, your brain is wired and learn to constructively work with it and reach your optimal potential: relationally, professionally, spiritually, financially and emotionally
