I am a Funeral Celebrant, but also an End of Life Consultant/Guide – also known as a Deathwalker – I am accepting of my own journey towards death as openly, courageously and as best I can.  I also walk with, or accompany others in their own death journey – and also their family and friends.

I can offer care guidance and information to empower, inform and enable others to be as open, courageous and the best they can. I have worked in the death and dying area for 19 years and hope to empower people to make their own informed End Of Life Choices.

I run Workshops and also provide individual sessions for people wishing to be prepared for their end of life, offering guidance to what appropriate forms to complete – whether they are well or closer in their death journey. There are so many choices available, but not many people know them. My aim is to empower people to live life fully, knowing they have all their plans complete. Having also been a Bereavement Counsellor, I am also able to offer information on Bereavement support.

Having worked in both palliative care and Bereavement Services over many years, I understand many issues around death and grieving and will support you with a unique ceremony for the person you are farewelling. You do have many options for how you would like to proceed with this.

Planning a funeral, or memorial service, can be very sad and often challenging. It is a time to farewell someone close to you while also celebrating the life of that person. Always remember you have choices around this event. I can discuss ideas with you.

I will meet with you and the family to discuss the service, capturing an image of your special someone. I can write or assist with the eulogy and liaise closely with the Funeral Director to ensure the ceremony is well-coordinated and runs smoothly. You have many choices you may not know about.

I also offer an option to visit you within a month of the funeral so we can talk about how you felt about the funeral. I also provide resources and support for your grief experience.
