In today's episode of The Jane Anderson Show, I am excited to get to interview an amazing woman, named Cait Wotherspoon. Cait is one of Sydney’s leading grief consultants and guides. With a lifetime of various lived and learned experiences behind her, she has helped thousands of clients move through their grief and rediscover the joy in their lives. Cait’s aim is to ensure that her clients view their grief as a natural part of life’s cycle, to be unashamed of the grieving process and to have a healthy guilt-free outlook on grief.
Cait has a lifetime of experience in many different careers. She began as a Registered Nurse, specialising in Mental Health, Oncology and Palliative Care. She then attained a Bachelor of Education and taught Primary school and went on to TAFE teaching literacy and numeracy to adult newly arrived refugees. Cait has also studied psychotherapy and psychology.
Cait is a caring, compassionate individual who specialises in grief, loss and bereavement. She is passionate about helping people build their courage that allows them to make sense of the story of their grief and the strength to share it, in order to move forward and create the life they want to live.
A skilled communicator, Cait combines a variety of insightful and therapeutic models with compassion, commitment and a generous measure of grounded, light-hearted moments aimed at ensuring each client can work through their grief using the skills, tools and strategies that Cait has embedded and empowered within them.
She has a wealth of knowledge in art therapy, sand play therapy, psychology and psychotherapy that has been gathered over the past 45 years. She has a thriving private practice in Penrith, in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia, where she's helped thousands of clients navigate through their grief to live healthy lives, understanding that grief is a normal part of their life.
Cait is an advocate for raising awareness about the importance of grief support and education within communities. Through workshops, online programs, speaking engagements, and writing, she strives to foster a culture of compassion, understanding, and resilience in the face of loss.
Cait is currently working on her program and book called “Creatively Grieving to Rediscover Joy” and hopes that you will engage with her and the course to undertake the journey through grief.
