    Death can be a difficult and confusing time with many practical issues and emotions to navigate. My aim as an independent funeral celebrant, is to offer you a gentle, safe space for sharing grief and honouring life.

    • I will listen and support you in respectfully telling the stories of your loved ones- that feel true to them, and meaningful to you.
    • I will gently support you in being as involved as you wish to be and with any contributions you wish to make.
    • I work with you to create a personal, beautiful and memorable funeral ceremony, whether you define your beliefs as religious, spiritual, secular or something in between.

    Saying goodbye when someone has died is not about overblown gestures, but about capturing the essence of the person who has died with love. Poetry, music, song, silence, candles, personal touches, making or decorating the coffin, carrying the coffin, digging the grave, a venue that feels fitting… It is possible to take courage and follow your hearts to create a simple ceremony full of meaning.

    So many things are possible; the funeral ceremony or memorial can take place at a crematorium, the grave side, in your home or at a venue that you have chosen- even burial on your land.

    Please visit my website or facebook page to find out more, and get in touch if you think I may be able to help you.
