Janice Thompson has combined her academic qualifications which include a master’s degree in Psychology research with her practical experience of working as a therapist and trainer. For the past fifteen years she has dedicated herself to helping those who are grieving. She has developed and facilitates grief training for practitioners, regularly runs workshops on loss and grief, holds grief retreats and leads an online grief café where those grieving can come together and share experiences. Janice speaks on various aspects of grief at conferences and has participated in a wide variety of podcasts.
Janice’s passion for working with those grieving began after finding some techniques and tools to help herself through the sudden loss of her husband at a young age. The realisation that her struggle to find peace was related to an earlier death in the family led her on a journey to understand grief and subsequently help others.
Janice enjoys a simple life in Shropshire, England, where she lives on her narrowboat with her partner and her dog, Dudley.
