CO-FOUNDER, FACILITATOR & BEREAVED DAD
Tim is a qualified training practitioner, executive coach and innovator, with many years’ experience coaching senior management teams in the public sector and advising and consulting for new and small enterprises.
Tim used his personal experience of the diagnosis and loss of his daughter Naomi in establishing and running dads.care with Co-founder Marie Murray.
‘Our community of bereaved dads has grown since we started this group in 2011 – some come regularly, others occasionally or no longer.
Whatever the cause of death of your child and whether they died recently or long ago, you will always find a warm welcome and be able to share your feelings and the life and legacy of your child.’
CO-FOUNDER, FACILITATOR & BEREAVEMENT COUNSELLOR
Marie spent many years’ caring for children with life limiting conditions and their families at the world’s first children’s hospice, Helen & Douglas House in Oxford, developing deep knowledge and competencies in bereavement counselling.
In 2011 in conjunction with Tim Whitworth, Marie used her valuable skills and experience to establish our pioneering group, to provide specific support for bereaved Dads.
‘This group is a place where Dads come to focus and dedicate special time for themselves and their child.
I am constantly astounded by the level of openness, honesty, camaraderie and compassion shown for each other.
The way they welcome each new Dad is heart warming and when you have a group of men together, you will inevitably have humour amidst the sadness.’
