Traditionally, we do not ‘do death well’ in our modern Western society. Many of us find it personally confronting to think of our own mortality, let alone the death of someone we love.
Talking about death and dying is often a hidden, ‘taboo’ subject which for many people is a challenging conversation to have with others.
Jacqui, promises authenticity, calmness, and compassion as she guides and supports individuals, families, and friends to prepare for the important transitions that occur at, during and after the end of life. This is done through conversations and sharing and fostering a sense that you are not alone.
Jacqui will support you to co-craft a ceremony that reflects the person who has died, or the loss that is being felt, allowing family and friends to collectively grieve, share and celebrate life stories, express feelings and come together during this time of loss.

Jacqui is just amazing. She has been helping, guiding and supporting me through the loss of my husband in a way that is kind, considerate, caring and unobtrusive. Her work with those who are grieving is so important and what particularly impresses me about Jacqui is that she sees what she does as a privilege. It is not a job to her but a true calling. I count myself very lucky to have had her guidance and expertise in this difficult time in my life. I would strongly recommend Jacqui to anyone nearing the end of their lives and to their families. Her kindness and compassion will be of great value.
In a time of pure grief with losing a loved one, Jacqui was a rock providing genuine over and beyond compassion and support… A heartfelt eulogy to be remembered by all as she touched and comforted so many. An earth angel in disguise. There are not enough words to express our gratitude. We are forever grateful! .
