A little bit about me. I have a Bachelor in Nursing and in recent years, I worked as an RN in a Retirement Village here on the Central Coast of NSW. I am also a qualified Meditation Facilitator and Reiki Master/Teacher/Practitioner and have used these modalities while working as an RN.
I have a great belief that we ‘don’t do’ death well in our culture and I would like to help people have more say in how they would like their end of life to look like, help them make their needs and wishes known, prepare as well as is practical for death – supporting them every step of the way. I can also support the families to prepare and assist their loved one at their end of life and following their death.
Personally, I have experienced a number of losses in my family and have felt frustration and sadness with the way they were treated before, during and following death. It is my intention to help and your loved ones find peace, healing and new understanding. I provide a complimentary no obligation one hour visit to meet with you and ascertain how I might be helpful to you.
On the flip side, we ‘don’t necessarily do’ life well either. It is face-paced, stressful and can also be physically, mentally and emotionally painful. I first tried meditation when I was in labour with my second son. Having experienced a medical emergency with my first son – I decided to give it a go. All I knew was to go within and visualise the journey down the birth canal. I managed to give birth more easily, with less pain and less fear. I have now been teaching meditation with an emphasis on mindfulness and believe it to be a great adjunct to end of life care for both families and the dying person.
Meditation and reiki are both simple, portable ‘healing’ tools that anyone can learn and utilise in their own lives – in terms of self care and care for family and friends. Both can help with physical and mental well being. I have been blessed to witness not only family and friends but clients too enjoying the benefits of meditation and reiki.
I am a member of the Australian Association of Reiki Professionals, NDAN (Natural Death Advocacy Network) and the Australian Funeral Celebrants Association.
