About Devika Chowdhury

Devika has a background working in a local hospice and as a psychotherapist. She is passionate about death literacy and feels that Death Cafes are an important and powerful medium for us to explore and discover a more diverse and realistic language to be used around death, dying and bereavement.


About Jane Iskander

Professionally Jane is a qualified Occupational Therapist and has a range of life experiences through her work in social care, health, palliative care and in her own life. Jane's interest in Death Cafe has arisen through a concern that as a culture we often avoid talking about the scary topics and therefore find ourselves unable to have important conversations with loved ones.

Jane believes the more we talk to each other, the less difficult such topics become and through the Death Cafe, she wants to enable more of us to feel comfortable to have open discussions around our thoughts and feelings with our friends and families.
