Grief and bereavement counselling and service referrals
Firstly, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry for your loss. Whether you’ve lost a loved one or you’re concerned about someone who has, navigating grief and bereavement can be a lonely and challenging experience. If you need someone to talk to, are unsure how to navigate the next steps (of which there are often many after someone passes), or need advice on the logistics, I can help. I’m also on hand to remind you that it’s ok to smile, laugh, and delight in life after a loss.
When should I consider accessing grief services?
The grieving process will look and feel different for everyone. It’s also important to allow yourself the time and space to mourn your loss. A number of factors will determine whether you might seek external help in coping with your grief. There is also nothing wrong with simply feeling like you need someone to talk to.

How I work
I’ll conduct an initial consultation, where together we will decide what support plan would suit you best. It could be a referral to a specific service you need or a package of counselling sessions or, as is most often the case, a mix of both.
Information on the formal and informal tasks and processes that are often faced following a death. After completing a full life assessment, where I provide information on services that may be of benefit to you and your individual situation. Service referrals can be inclusive of government and non-government services, experts and other professionals who can offer specialist advice on post death matters.

I offer online counselling sessions Australia wide. Meet online at a time and place that works for you, and access the support you need from the privacy of your own home.

The first step is often the hardest
Making that first appointment booking is often difficult. It means admitting that you need a little extra help in coping with your grief. It’s important to know that’s completely normal and that you’re not alone. Together we can chart a course through this difficult time in your life.
Making your first appointment booking is a step forward in your grief journey.
