Wendy Halford

Wendy is a former Registered Nurse and trained as a Soul Midwife in 2013. Since 2015 she’s facilitated workshops around death and dying, both for professionals and members of the public. She believes strongly that we all have “wisdom within” – including the intuition to support people who are dying – but in modern life we sometimes need reminding. Her most recent local community talks and workshops inspire people to access within themselves what she calls The Lost Art of Simple Dying. She believes that by “normalising” death we are less fazed by it, and this is regularly borne out by the feedback she receives.

She is delighted to be part of the Kicking the Bucket Festival 2023 team, encouraging people to open meaningful and tender conversations with each other.

Wendy’s other interests include country walks with her husband, spending time with her children and grandchildren, and most recently, teaching Circle Dance!
