I have been working as a Funeral Celebrant for close to
15 years, and in that time I have helped many families through the traumatic, stressful and also sacred time of saying farewell to a loved one.
I find myself constantly drawing on my psychology background when I am often called upon to help families who have lost their loved one through traumatic circumstances or illness.
I like to spend time with the families in order to learn as much about their loved one as I can as well as being able to support those who may need a little bit of extra nurturing and love. This process helps me to give them a fitting, personalised send off.
“By the time I get to a funeral, I feel as though I know the person whose life we are there to celebrate. Every funeral is different, as no two people are the same and those that are left behind need to say different things and do things in their own way in order to say goodbye. I can’t change the circumstances that have brought families to me, but I can promise them a listening ear, a wealth of experience and advice, a warm and unhurried approach and a beautiful and authentic funeral”
I am happy to travel to conduct funerals, memorials or scattering of ashes ceremonies wherever required.
I choose to work in conjunction with William Barrett and Sons Funeral Directors.
