"The care of the dead separates us from all other living things, for it is only the human race that dignifies death.  We mourn for a person lost to us and we ensure that
their departure is a dignified and meaningful event, reflecting the love
and the esteem in which they were held in life."  [Eric Walters]

 The Loss of a Loved One ...

The loss of a loved one can be difficult to deal with.  If you've been recently bereaved, please accept my condolences on your loss.

Losing someone close to you often arouses feelings some of us have seldom experienced before, and you may experience a whole range of emotions.  This is a perfectly natural part of the grief process.  Planning a funeral can be a confusing and sometimes overwhelming process, especially at a time when we are often in a heightened emotional state.

As a qualified Funeral Celebrant, I’m here to help you when you need it most.  For me, my role extends far beyond just the delivery of a beautiful service.  At such a difficult time, you don’t want strangers around you, but people that truly care – people you respect and trust, people who share your thoughts and feelings.

I pride myself on delivering a well-planned yet personal, heartfelt and sincere funeral service - one which is designed to farewell your loved one in a most respectful and dignified manner, and one which also provides comfort and reassurance for those left behind.  I’ll work closely with you and your family to ensure that the service is meaningful, personal and relevant to the life it’s celebrating.

I am committed to supporting you every step of the way.


Finally, as a member of the Funeral Celebrants Association Australia, you have peace of mind in knowing that my services comply with strict Codes of Conduct that ensure the highest levels of professionalism, dignity and respect at all times.

Standard Inclusions:

- Travelling and meeting with you and/or your family to discuss your requirements

- Creating a beautiful ceremony accurately reflecting the life of your loved one

- Writing and delivery of the eulogy, if required

- Bound copy of the ceremony for you to keep


You  are more than welcome to CONTACT ME directly at any time to discuss your requirements.  However, if you are more comfortable talking with your chosen Funeral Director, you are welcome to arrange my services through them.
