My Services

Legacy Projects, Memory-Making & Life Review – Life is a story, and photos and videos are a powerful way to hold onto memories. I am passionate about preserving the photos, telling the stories, and highlighting the memories that matter to you most. We can do this together using these technical services Photo Digitisation; Video Editing & Post-Production Services; Video Interviews (in person or online); Transcripts, Music and Narration; as well as through Memorial Videos. 

Created from photos, videos, and music, a Memorial Video captures aspects of your family history and honours your loved one. The funeral service, celebration of life, and graveside service can also be filmed for those that can't attend. Memorial Videos can be created after someone has died (compiled from photos and existing video), or before. Oftentimes, people feel that telling their own story is the powerful way to come to terms with their own death. 

End-of-Life Comfort Care – Emotional companionship to the person dying, as well as their close family and friends. During our time together we will navigate what is going on in the mind and body, as I advocate for your final wishes. This may include: Household support, Careteam organisation, Sitting vigil with music, storytelling, and creative writing, Reiki and breathwork, Death anxiety support, Respite care, and Caretaking. 

Grief Companionship & Compassionate Listening – Grief is unique to each individual. I hold space for grief in hopes of guiding you to a place of better understanding, healing, and ease. My support comes from a non-medical, spiritual place. The nurturing space I hold is intuitively centred around emotional and spiritual companionship and advocacy, to witness your words without judgment. I also offer creative outlets for grief, including free writing, collage, drawing and painting. 

Advance Deathcare Planning – Advanced planning allows you to discuss and document your preferences for your end-of-life care. End-of-Life planning goes beyond medical care and you can start this process at any time in your life. Together we will reflect on what is important to you, based on personal beliefs and values. Topics of discussion include: Advance directives, End-of-Life comfort care, After Death Planning, Wrapping up affairs, and What does a "Good Death" mean to you, practically, emotionally and spiritually?
