I live in northern Tasmania, the island state below the mainland Australian continent, with my spouse Peter and dog Cully. I am an expert in social and health sciences, social research, grief and loss, injury, PTSD and trauma recovery, and personal growth and development. As an end of life consultant I offer my clients consumer advocacy and education around options, rights, and choices at end of life. I also offer specialty pet end of life expertise and support, and secular, agnostic and atheist services for humans – especially for those who may not have a family network to call on when they are dying.
I am honest, ethical, and upfront with my clients while offering support with a sense of humour. If you live at a distance I offer video and phone call services to ensure that those who live in isolated areas are not alone or lonely at end of life. With my allied health and arts background, I am 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: including legacy and memorial projects and personal ritual.
With a PhD in Social Science, a Masters degree in Art Therapy, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts I am able to offer both personal insights and creative solutions within broader cultural contexts. I aim to help you better understand your own responses and needs for a good end of life.
