ABOUT THE WELLNESS SPECIALIST

The Wellness Specialist is a registered training organization that is listed with the End of Life Supportive Alliance (ELSA) as well as INELDA (International End of Life Doula Association). The Wellness Specialist trains in the areas of bereavement, grief, loss, palliative and end of life support (doulas & counselors), family counselling, transitional counselling and coaching and  trauma (generational trauma, traumatic birth experience, trauma debriefing, trauma & the child).

Training consists of theoretical training (online or in person), mandatory volunteer hours via a 24 hour online network of global practitioners (weekly practice sessions), tutor and mentoring programme and business development support. Our courses last 2 – 6 weeks in duration and consist of weekly assignments, as well as a 3 hour final assessment at the end of each course.

We believe that learning is one part of the process but that competency assures ethical practice. Our programmes are therefore designed to embed and test knowledge both in written form, but also in practical exposure.
