It’s with great sadness that I write this post for you as we sadly had to put Dibley to sleep this week. It was time for her to make her way to the Rainbow Bridge and leave behind the family who’d loved her in this world. Dibley had been diagnosed with lymphoma. Despite suggestions of

Posted: June 17th 2018

On Father’s Day I thought I’d share this poem with you.  As someone who lost their Dad at a really young age, it hits all the right notes for me. Whether you can be with your Dad today or whether you can remember the depth of his presence, may these words remind you of all

Posted: May 14th 2018

There’s lots of talk out there about planning for your Funeral.  Take the worry off your ‘loved ones’.  Sort your affairs out for everyone. Now I go with this………to a point!   Yes make those big decisions around things like burial or cremation, perhaps where you’d like to be laid to rest, where you want

Who’ll read your love letters when you’re gone?

Posted: May 9th 2018

How would you feel if you found your Mum and Dad’s old love letters?  I’ve sat with lots of sons and daughters who’ve just done that. It leaves them both amused and embarrassed at what they’ve found.  Some chuckle and want to put them straight back where they got them from because they feel like

Just treading water in your business? A Mentor can help show you the way!

Posted: April 30th 2018

As someone who’s always had a Mentor and a Coach at their side, I completely understand the value of the roles.  That’s why offering these services to new and developing Celebrants is so important to me.  I know the difference they can make to a sink or swim scenario. A good Mentor and Coach will

When my time comes…..

Posted: April 24th 2018

Every life is unique. Each and every person creates their own life story. So no matter how many Funerals I’m invited to lead, each one stands out for its very own reason. I’d like to think that when my time comes, someone will be around to tell my story with the authenticity and sincerity that

Nobody deserves to be ‘vaguely remembered’ – here’s why I do what I do!

Posted: April 22nd 2018

“So what made you go into this then?” Even 7 years into being a Funeral Celebrant, this is still something I get asked on a weekly basis.  I’m not surprised though because quite frankly, what is it that makes someone want to get up every day, put some black clothes on and go to a

It’s time to recognise the changing Celebrant landscape!

Posted: April 15th 2018

As a Celebrant Mentor I’m not in the game of skilling people up to become good Celebrants – there are lots of training bodies out there and many active online forums that are well equipped to do that. I’m more focussed on raising the game for individual Celebrants to help them find their own path

Religion, Spirituality or Faith…..who knows?

Posted: April 1st 2018

As a Celebrant I get asked so many times about my own beliefs about life and death. Am I religious? Do I believe in God? Do I think there’s something out there? I’ve enjoyed some interesting conversations over the years and whilst my own beliefs don’t come into my role as a Celebrant, they do
