End of life coaching is a way of caring for the dying and the grieving which recognizes the patient/client as the expert on their own experience. Through powerful questions that help draw them out and deep listening of whatever they share, we can create an even safer place where they can express their normal feelings. Transformation occurs not by telling them how they should act or feel, but by walking with them where they are.

Introduction to End of Life Conversations
3D are delighted to be working in association with Coaching at End of Life UK and their open events will be listed here when available. It is run by Dr Sue Morrison and Dr Naomi Craft both experienced GPs and Coaches. Sue and Naomi can be contacted (at) coachingatendoflife.co.uk
Let them know if you’d like them to come and run something in your organisation. Their introductory training will give you the opportunity to evaluate your current methods of being with the dying and the grieving, and to add some new end of life tools to your toolkit. You will also be encouraged to examine your own views of death and dying as a part of your self-care – something which many busy end of life caregivers rarely take the time to do.
“I was skeptical about End of Life Coaching until I went through it. Coaches help others bring the best of themselves to the table in whatever circumstances. Why not help the dying or the bereaved do the same in the wilderness of loss? As a hospital Chaplain, I have found the principles of End of Life Coaching to be vital disciplines often employed with the dying and their families.” Chaplain
“Coaching the End of Life was an eye opener. The content was practical and not formulaic. We were challenged to go beyond the excellent case studies class and use coaching with those actually facing the end of life. I was led to face some false assumptions about the realities of impending death and how it can be received with an internal as well as eternal healing. I’d make it required training.”
