As an End of Life Doula, I provide non-medical service and support to dying people and their families.

Most of us are scared of dying because it is unknown and we don’t know what to expect. I can help ease fear and bring love and compassion to a situation that can be fraught with uncertainty.

Preparing for a death can be overwhelming. Managing emotion and practicalities while working through grief is difficult .

Have you thought about after death care or a home funeral? If you want to keep your loved one at home after they have died, adults or children, I can help you do this. Even bringing loved ones home from the hospital after death is possible. I can help with funeral arrangements and plans for the funeral or wake.

I will be on your side, advocating for you, serving you and your family, creating and holding space so you are as fully informed and as consciously engaged as you choose.

Additional Information

Death and dying have a been part of my life for a long time. I’m comfortable with discussions around the process of dying and also being present with those who are dying, or who have died, and their families.

Dying can be many things, a time of healing and love, emotional, spiritual and physical pain. In our modern world physical pain can usually be relieved. Emotional and spiritual pain however is not often recognised or spoken of. This is a tragedy because one of the greatest analgesics for emotional pain is the simple act of genuine listening.

As someone who cares deeply, but is outside of your family circle, I bring a stable, grounded and compassionate presence to the confusion you may be feeling at this time.

Our culture has developed a fear of dying and death for many reasons. These include our attachment to youth and our denial of ageing . The advances and changes in health care have pushed death mostly into the sterile rooms of hospitals. We deny death as a normal part of daily life as it once was many years ago.

I believe we need to bring death back into our lives and accept death as a normal human experience, not a medical event.

It is my wish for us all to embrace and accept our own deaths and in doing so, live more meaning lives.
I have 30 years of nursing experience and most of those years spent in Paediatric Intensive Care. I have borne witness to the dying process many times and gently encouraged families to care for their children after death. It has always been a privilege to serve these families at this time.

I am a home volunteer with Palliative Care.

I have been a member of Heartfelt for 12 years. Heartfelt is a group of professional photographers who give their time to provide photographic memories for families who suffer stillborn, extremely premature and terminally or critically ill children.
