An expert in grief and loss, injury, PTSD and trauma recovery, and personal growth and development, as an End of Life Consultant Annetta offers her clients consumer advocacy and education around options, rights, and choices at end of life. She also offers specialty pet end of life support and atheist services for humans, particularly for Social Orphans who may not have a family network to call upon when they are dying. With a health background, Annetta is able to translate and facilitate the understanding of options for medical and/or vet-based care, as well as for home-based end of life options. Annetta is also a registered NSW JP, with mobile JP services for clients.
She is a former somatic psychotherapist who has worked for more than three decades concentrating on the areas of grief and loss, injury and trauma recovery, and personal growth and development for clients. Working in three different countries, her client base ranged from military and first responders, professional dancers and elite athletes to corporate high-flyers and individuals who had life-changing accidents, surgeries, or injuries, young people through to the elderly. As many of Annetta's clients were living with terminal diagnoses and life-changing circumstances, she is an expert grief and loss practitioner with a great deal of both theoretical and lived experience.
Annetta is available for listening, vigiling, support with end of life planning options including Advanced Care Directives (ACD), and liaising with your network for memorial and event planning. Annetta is honest, ethical, and upfront with her clients while offering support with a sense of humour. And if you live in a remote area of Australia Dr Mallon offers Skype services to ensure that those who live in isolated areas are not alone or lonely at end of life.
