Celebrant CPD: Certificate in Suicide Bereavement Ceremonies

The Certificate in Suicide Bereavement Ceremonies is a one-day in-person training for those who are already certified as funeral celebrants. The course run from 9am to 5pm arranged for a mutually convenient day.

Many funeral celebrants feel inadequately prepared for dealing with families bereaved by suicide. This course, facilitated by Veronika and Paul Robinson, will guide you through everything you need to know to hold the space, be fully present, create, craft and officiate a funeral for someone who chose death. You will also learn how to channel your own emotions as well as those of the mourners, and to practice self-care.

Following this training day, you will have some written and practical work to complete in your own time.

The course fee, £450, includes expert tuition, training materials, lunch and refreshments, and ongoing support if needed.

Veronika Sophia Robinson is a highly experienced funeral celebrant, author of several books for celebrants, and tutor at Heart-led Ceremonies Celebrant Training in Cumbria.

Paul Robinson’s whole career has been centred around his voice, and other people’s. He is highly experienced as a celebrant, trained actor, drama coach, voiceover artist, singer, broadcaster, compère, and ventriloquist. Paul is an excellent communicator and teacher, and has a sixth sense about how to relate to individuals, groups and audiences.

Paul shares insights and techniques on how to make the best of your personality, how to build your self-confidence, control any nerves you may have… and of course, your voice, your presentation skills and body language.
