Death Doula

Conscious dying

doing death differently

Dying with Grace is the Art of Conscious Dying.

Give yourself the gift to be guided through your unique death journey. Embracing a different death experience for yourself and the loved ones in your circle.

It’s about the emotional, medical, and spiritual choices the dying or terminally ill make in their last month, days or hours. Maybe the dying feel a need to connect with relatives or friends to feel relieved, and be able to die in peace. Some want to connect with their pets.

Feeling loved and in peace about our lives and consciously reflecting on death and the transition without being in fear is a wonderful way to die.

Death is a natural part of life, and as an end-of-life practitioner, I help families cope with the loss and grief of a loved one. My approach is holistic, person-centered and supportive of your journey.

The care and focus of the emotional well-being of my clients who are terminally ill or have a life – threatening condition is my priority. 

My calming presence embraces the practice of kindness and compassion to provide comfort in a sacred space.

Dying is a sacred act and it involves the souls and body to transition.

My Ritual

Rituals at the end of life can provide a peaceful death.  This includes music, candles, poetry or personal objects.

During my mother’s passing, I read her favourite book, told her stories from her life and named all her siblings while she was already unconscious. 

"Grief is like the Ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim."

~ Vicki Harrison

A doula is a trained companion who is not a healthcare professional and who assists another individual through a significant health-related experience, such as miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth, or non-reproductive experiences such as dying. A doula may also provide support to the client’s partner, family, and friends.

My work can be done right in your home or in a hospice/ hospital or even online. Sometimes the client has special wishes or wants me to contact the family and start a healing conversation with everybody.

Coaching and End-of-Life Practitioner visits are possible both online or in Person. Thanks to Covid times, we all learned that the virtual world is possible and I offer online sessions via Zoom or Teams. If you are living in my local area of British Columbia then an in person home visit is possible.

There are single or multiple hour packages available and we like to discuss this with you after the 1-hour exploration session.
