End of Life Planning Service
Something I hear over and over again when I meet with the bereaved to make plans for a funeral is ‘If
only we had talked about it, if only we knew what they wanted’.
I have 30 years of nursing experience, as well as being a Funeral Celebrant specialising in ceremonies
that celebrate the very essence of an individual, and experience of using the Grief Recovery Method to
offer thoughtful and constructive support to the bereaved.
When I trained as a nurse there was very little mention of death in the lecture rooms. It was all about
preserving life. But even as a young woman I could see that this was rather narrow and my experiences
led me to think about death more than perhaps most others wish to. At the same time, I have always
been a cheerful sort! I love life and I love to laugh.
Many years ago my dad, a close friend and my mum all died in close succession and I felt the brutality
of loss. My life would never be the same again. Some years later a cancer diagnosis and all the
harrowing subsequent treatment, and the loss of some dear friends, were challenging and life changing
I am a trained and licensed ‘Before I Go’ End of Life Planning Facilitator. Before I Go Solutions,
founded and led by expert and author Jane Duncan-Rogers, offers superb End of Life Planning
education and support. I draw on my own personal encounters with deep loss and grief, and the
importance of talking about death and making good end of life plans, along with my professional
training, knowledge and experience, to help you make an individualised end of life plan which is
thorough, well informed and deeply personal to you.
Then, once you have made your end of life plans, you can get on with living an enriched life knowing
you are organised and will gift your loved ones with clear information about your life and your wishes
when you are no longer here. And it might help start some healthy conversations with your family and
friends whilst in the process of making these plans too!
While what I do builds on my own life journey, it is really all about you – your end of life plan, your loved
ones, your story and your hopes and wishes for living a fulfilled life.
