About us

About

I have a post graduate diploma (PGDip) in counselling from the University of Brighton. I’ve run community projects in Lambeth and Brighton, for people with learning disabilities & mental health challenges, as well as managing an independent living scheme for disabled people. I was a journalist for many years, conducting interviews with people from all sections of the community. I was editor of Viva Lewes magazine. I love Lewes and the downs. I currently work for Sussex Wildlife Trust. I sing in a local choir and swim in the Pells Pool.

Why it matters

I am committed to helping to create the best possible funeral or memorial service that both respectfully honours the dead and supports the living.

Letting go

‘Life is a balance between holding on and letting go.’ Rumi

A memorial or funeral service, done with care, thoughtfulness and sensitivity, can help those left behind with the life they face with the person they loved no longer being with them.

Kindness

If you have lost someone, it’s incredibly important to be treated with kindness.

Compassion

I offer a combination of compassion as well as practical support.

Integrity

My counselling training helps me listen very carefully to what you want.
