Planning a funeral is such a difficult time for anyone, and often one that we aren’t prepared for. That’s why you really want to be working with someone who is kind, calm and organised; someone who is sympathetic to your loss, and someone who is able to offer gentle guidance at a time when decisions can be difficult to make.
As a funeral celebrant I bring my compassion, my understanding, and my own life experience to the table, and I will assist you, as much or as little as you need, to create a a beautiful goodbye that truly reflects the life and the essence of the person who has died.
The funeral ceremony is an important part of the grieving, and ultimately, the healing process. My professional and personal experience, in the world of death and dying over the last ten years, has taught me that the more empowered somebody feels to farewell a loved one in a way that feels right for them, the more authentic the goodbye, and in turn, the healthier their bereavement can be.
From the moment I became a celebrant I have been dedicated to improving the process by which we farewell our loved ones. I will work closely with you to get to know as much as I can about the person who has died and I will provide you with options and choices to assist you to have the farewell that feels right for you.
We can never fill the gap that is left when we lose someone we love, but we can farewell them and celebrate their life in a way that is meaningful, authentic and heartfelt. Knowing that you have no regrets around what their funeral looked like, can make the journey of healing just that little bit easier.
