Grief Journey Programme

The Grief Journey Programme has been designed by Wathall’s and renowned author and grief counsellor Dr Bill Webster to equip those who have suffered a bereavement with the tools, knowledge and a fresh mindset to come to terms with your grief and work towards your future.

The programme is free of charge and, over four weeks, we meet once a week for a two-hour session that covers how grief affects people, confronting emotions and loneliness.

Evening Programmes – all 6-8 pm at Derby Rugby Club, Haslam’s Lane, Derby.
May – Tuesday’s 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st
Oct – Monday’s 3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th

Daytime Programmes – all 2-4 pm in the Chapter Room, The Sanctuary (was the Bookshop Café), Iron Gate, Derby.
March – Wednesday’s 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th
June/July – Friday’s 10th, 17th, 24th & 1st
Nov – Friday’s 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th

Grief is an individual experience; each person’s grief is unique and personal. The Grief Journey sessions help you to explore the grief process and your own journey to help you cope with adjustments to life as it is now and in the future.

“It is difficult to explain the positive difference between myself now and the way I was feeling at the beginning of the programme. I do know there is still a way for me to go but I feel more able and equipped to now deal with the future.”

To participate in this course, attendance to all 4 sessions is required. Pre-booking is essential and you can do this by calling or emailing the contact details below. The dates of the next course will be announced on our news page and our social media accounts.
