This Moment Here
End of Life Consultant/Guide

I am a non-medical and non-religious service person who is passionate about honouring the choices and wishes of the dying whilst assisting those around them to feel safe and supported during this important time.

Whilst working with you I will provide information and support that will empower you and/or your loved ones to make sure that your wishes are honoured. Together we can cover all your end of life choices from the legal through to the philosophical in a safe and non-judgemental environment. My intention is to completely advocate for ‘your wishes’ with not only medical staff but friends and family too if and when required. I have no pre-conceived agendas, just knowledge, ideas, support, compassion and advocacy skills to make sure that your wishes are carried out. I strongly believe that death and end-of-life care does not need to be impersonal or according to a prescribed process. I can assist you to make your goodbye as unique and tailored as you see fit. If you wish to completely bypass the funeral homes, I can guide you through that process too. 

I can also provide information and support to hold a funeral or ‘Celebration of Life’ that reflects exactly who you are and at a much lower cost than those provided by the funeral industry. However, holding your own funeral can be a bit of work and thus it’s important to recognise that this option isn’t for everyone and that is perfectly okay.

If this is all sounding a bit scary and unconventional do remember that only a century ago it was the norm for the family to take care of loved ones dying. We didn’t bring people away to hospitals and death wasn’t medicalised or institutionalised but rather seen as the normal part of the life-cycle that it is. 

As your End of Life Consultant/Guide I want to empower you and your family with preparing a plan that clearly stipulates you wishes so that you can have peace of mind and get on with living a life that fits you best
