the  good  life's  end



Death is inextricably connected with life. But for a lot of people it still appears in life at an unexpected time. Perhaps you are – or someone close is – confronted with a terminal disease. Or perhaps you have recently lost someone close and now you are confronted with a great loss and your own mortality. Or perhaps you have – or someone close has – reached a stage in life where the wish arises to end one’s own life.

In all these situations it should be possible to be able to have an open and honest conversation about life’s end. But talking about life’s end isn’t always easy, one might not know how to deal with it or unpleasant feelings might arise. TGLE counselling offers the opportunity to talk about death in a frank, open and honest way. Or to be able to begin a conversation about life’s end with someone close.

TGLE stands for The Good Life’s End and doesn’t refer to thé good life’s end. Because the first question is if it this possible? Does a good life’s end exist. Research shows that people do have an idea of what a good life’s end constitutes of. For example pain free or surrounded by close ones. Many individual differences exist. The Good Life’s End is focused on discovering what feels like a good life’s end for you. Because often people know what they don’t want or they see in their surroundings how they don’t want it. But what the possibilities are at life’s end and what you want exactly is not always clear.

The good life’s end is therefore focused on creating clarity about the possibilities there are at life’s end, to take your ideas into consideration and to see what forms a good life’s end for you. This happens through counselling.
