About Petra Geiszbühl-Szimon and László Nemes


Petra Geiszbühl-Szimon

 I am a mental health expert (orogonally an economist), bereavement counsellor, and bereavement group facilitator, member of the management team at Napfogyatkozás Bereavement Assosiation. First I have specialized in pre-and perinatal losses, also I have been delivering trainings on companioning in prenatal loss for professionals working on this field. Recently I have conducted a research on the effect of group discussion on death anxiety- and attitude, and the correlation of death anxiety and the psychological immune competences, during which I become familiar with the Death Cafe movement, and in 2015 began organizing Death Cafes in Budapest. Ever since I’ve been devoted to promote open discussions on death, which also links to the meaning of life, hence an opportunity to live a more authentic and thorough life.  Before mental health counsellig, I had spent 13 years as HR manager in a multinational environment. I am also a happy mother of two small ones.


László Nemes

I am a philosopher, bioethicist, and philosophical counselor. For almost a decade, I organize public philosophical events, e. g. reading groups and philosophical cafés in different environments (at universities, public coffeehouses, cultural centers, or evenat a community psychiatry center). As a university teacher of philosophy and bioethics, I have  been interested in death-related topics for a longtime, and as an integration of these interests, I’ve become interested in the international Death Café movement.
