WHO AM I?
Soul Midwife, Funeral Celebrant, Eternal Optimist and a big believer in open and honest conversations with a big bit of cake on the side.
Following a long career in care, I soon realised that End of Life care was where my heart and soul belonged. Being at someone's bedside as they took their last breath seemed the most natural thing in the world for me to do. This isn't just a job to me, this is part of who I am. I have vast experience in Domiciliary and Palliative care and as well as being a Soul Midwife, I currently work part time at a local hospice. I offer a wide range of End of Life support in the community, in Hospices, Care Homes and Hospitals and also for local businesses.
My voice is my superpower, I speak from the heart in everything I do and I am truly committed to this work, before and after Death.
Having completed all my training at the Soul Midwives School in Dorset with Felicity Warner, I am Level 1 and 2 qualified and actively work around Sussex and the South East. I am also a Soul Midwife Mentor and TLC Trainer.
I hold multiple qualifications including diplomas in End of life and Dementia care and The Care Certificate. I am 'Sage and Thyme' foundation level trained, I have Grief and Bereavement qualifications and I am qualified Life Coach.
I am also an Angelic Reiki practitioner. I completed my Independent Funeral Celebrant training and certification with The Academy of Modern Celebrancy in 2021.
I have all relevant insurances, am DBS checked and fully vaccinated taking weekly PCR/LFT Covid tests.
WHAT WE HEAR MOST....
Please feel free to get in touch with any other questions.
WHY DO I NEED A SOUL MIDWIFE?
Soul Midwives can be that shoulder to cry on, that ear that listen and we can carry those 'burdens' you feel you cannot give to those you love. You can say the things out loud that you think you shouldn't. You can show the emotion that maybe difficult to show others. We can help you be in control of your own journey and help you help yourself, to have what ever a 'good death' is to you. We can help your loved one to understand what it is you maybe going through. And we can connect to your soul and help a peaceful and hopefully gentle death.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE RELIGIOUS/SPIRITUAL?
You could be a devote Christian, Muslim, a Scientologist or Atheist, your faith is your own, we are there to support every soul in how ever they need it. Although our general point of view maybe seen as 'Spiritual', our aim is to simply provide more love and support for those who are dying, whatever you believe, whatever your faith.
I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A SOUL MIDWIFE...
A lot of people haven't, which is part of our mission. To let people know we are out there as we believe everyone should have extra love and care when they die. There are approx 1000 Soul Midwives all over the world, most in the UK, from all walks of life, all ages, all backgrounds and experiences. All information is on the Soul Midwives website.
DO SOUL MIDWIVES CHARGE?
We would all do this work for free if we could but we have bills to pay and have invested thousands in this specialist and extensive training. All Soul Midwives work differently, some volunteer their time while others, like myself, offer a range of services at different prices. You pay for Reiki, a massage, a therapy session, an acupuncturist, and Soul Midwives are grouped within these types of 'complementary therapies'. For my business, there are individual and business rates for the TLC Training Days and the Soul Midwife costs will be discussed on an individual and personal basis. Our care is very person centred, as is the pricing. However, I will always endeavour to help those who get in touch in some way shape or form so please do reach out if you need help or would like some advice. Our aim and goal is to help as many people as possible who face the end of their lives so no one has to face death alone.
