GDEP Services

What do you value for your end of life?

I offer numerous options for people who wish to plan their end of life effectively and well, see creative and personal wishes fulfilled, understand their options for body disposal and after-death ceremony, and what grief support for loved ones can look like. I also offer education, advocacy, and keynote and public speaking.

Grief can come in many forms, including historical, anticipatory, complex, traumatic and disenfranchised.

I have more than three decades of grief therapy experience in four countries. Specialist modalities include evidence-based EFT and art therapy (available through the NDIS).  I also offer upervision and mentoring for end of life students and practitioners. 

Evidence-based EFT  is available to all clients and mentees.



While I frequently work with people, I do also work with pet owners, veterinary staff, and companion animal handlers to support people through pet end of life.

One of my specialist therapy skills is working with people experiencing disenfranchised grief after receiving a life-limiting or terminal diagnosis for their pet, as well as following the death of a pet.

For all clients who like to include pets and animals, events and creative projects are designed to be pet-friendly where possible.
