How To Die Peacefully – an Interview with Dr Wendy Nickerson

The words ‘how to die peacefully’ really struck me. That’s what everybody wants, isn’t it?

Every month this year I am going to be interviewing a specialist in the field of dying, death and grief for my new series The B.I.G. Interviews Series, hosted on my You Tube Channel.

 

First up was Dr Wendy Nickerson, of International Health Coaching Enterprises.

 

Wendy is part of my Facebook group End of Life Conversations, and it was due to a wise comment there that we initially connected.

 

I listened to her speak about Helping People Die Peacefully, and she told us, very movingly, about

some of the small things we can do that make a huge difference to the dying person leaving this world in peace.

 

For instance, she told us about helping someone to review their life, and how to do that in a way that really helps. She also highlighted how to open up a dialogue with the dying person about what is happening, something that was really useful to hear, as even some doctors are not able to do this.

 

Even if you don’t know anyone dying now, this stuff is great to help you prepare well for the most peaceful death possible for yourself.

 

Above all, this is the kind of extra information that is a great complement to the work I am doing, and will help you complete your own end of life plans.

 

In just half an hour, Dr. Wendy also managed to share about:

  • what the physical needs of a dying person are  (they’re really nice!)
  • one of the most important questions to ask someone who is approaching their end of life
  • very creative ways to help people to review their lives

and much more!

    Jane, thank you for this heartwarming information. What a wonderful idea to interview a specialist a month! I have tucked away these first gems and look forward to learning some more. Doesn’t the word ‘cradle’ conjure up such warm and loving emotions! We cannot underestimate the power of a loving touch and I cannot think of a more appropriate time to give that gift than when your precious loved one is dying.
