About Me

I have been surrounded by companion animals my entire life and have grieved many losses. Our animal companions become a part of our lives, they provide us with unconditional love and in return we build a special and intimate bond with them. Pets become members of our families and when they are gone we can feel completely lost.  

 

In recognising the impact of pets in our lives, I am now one of only a handful of certified Pet Loss Bereavement Counsellors in Australia with accreditation from the Association of Pet Loss Bereavement, founded by Dr. Wallace Sife, Ph. D. I provide online pet loss support for those that are at various stages of their pet loss bereavement.


With my own pet loss experiences, I recognise the strength of a companionship bond and the significant value of pet loss support. Grief is a journey we are taken on, the experience is challenging and full of mixed emotions. I am passionate in assisting others with their loss of a beloved animal companion and am able to support you through your healing process, whilst helping to keep your beloved pets memories close to your heart.
