Death Doula's

Who We Are & What We Represent

Death is a common factor for all of us, we are born we die. Death plays a big part in our lives, we see our family and friends die as we grow old, or sometimes way too soon. There is much fear in dying and many unknowns, and often there are misconceptions of dying.

A Death Doula offers support, guidance, education, and comforting presence, while delivering compassion and empathy to the individual dying as well as the enclosed circle of family and friends.

A Death Doula can start working with the dying as early as diagnosis, assisting with legacy work, vigil and aftercare. A death doula is a practice that can work from start to beginning, from diagnosis, dying process, and funeral. A death doula is a non-medical, non-judgemental role.

As a death doula we are pioneers in the way dying currently is and returning to what dying once was. Everyone deserves a chance to die the best possible death for themselves, and no one should die alone.

A Death Café is a wonderful place to make new friends, meet people and discuss dying and death in a safe environment. Our Death Cafes are free and welcoming to all, there is no agenda or objective just a respectable and confidential space to have healthy conversations. 

Our Death Cafes are always in a welcoming environment with great desserts, coffee or tea.

It is always important to remember that the Death Café is not a grief or counselling session but a non- judgemental space to have open discussion.
