Full Circle Grief Podcast

A Safe Place to Breathe – Conversations about Love, Life, Loss and Grief


We are modern funeral directors who are committed to improving the wellbeing of every bereaved individual. As part of this mission, we want to support conversations about bereavement, mental health, death, dying and grief by talking to those who have been directly affected.

In our Full Circle grief podcast, we speak to people who have first-hand experience.  Individuals who have generously given their time to speak with us include members of the public, professionals within mental health fields, clinical staff on cancer wards, death doula’s, celebrants and many others.

Most of the people who have contributed have their own personal journeys to share, which we believe will help others to cope with loss and grief.  The professionals explain how their jobs affect them personally, and we will how talk about the services they provide.

Our hope, is that with these conversations, we will begin to lift the tension, anxiety and apprehension around talking about loss, bereavement and grief and contribute to people feeling able to talk about these subjects more openly again.

The discussions we have embarked upon are not always easy, but we feel that it is important to allow gentle conversations about death, dying and bereavement back into our lives in way that is healthy, positive, supportive and promotes better wellbeing for every bereaved individual, family and community.

Dave hosts this podcast because he has seen the value of open, honest and gentle conversations about life, love and loss in both his personal and professional life and sees how talking about death and dying can be life-enhancing.
