End of life ...

Facing death is never easy. 

If you have no attachment to a religious faith or community to help you, the honouring

of a lost loved one can pose a bewildering challenge. People can be at a loss to know

what's possible, what's allowed, what's acceptable. Surrounded, as it seems, by necessary

procedures and legal requirements, it's easy to lose sight of - or even to reach - what you

want to say or do in response to this ending.

 

I can help you towards the questions which will help you understand what is needful.

I will listen to your memories, your ideas, your wonderings. I will help you grasp what you

want to do for your loved and lost one, and with you will craft a funeral service or a memorial  

event which will be a fitting farewell, and a secure step along your path of grief and rebuilding.

This process does not need to wait until after death.

If you know that death is approaching, you may well want to give some space and time to thinking about how to meet and honour it when the time comes.

This might be for someone you love or for yourself.

If for you, I can take time with you to explore what you want along the way: what’s important for you to do, remember, pass on, let go, finish, say. 

You may want to explore holding a ceremony or ritual with those you choose, to say good bye in your own way, together.

Often family and friends need somewhere they can turn to, to explore what they are feeling, what they may want to say, and to be supported in what they need to do. I can offer time in quiet companionship, the chance to speak the unspeakable, give voice to the fears, hopes and sadness, before, during and after death calls.

 

It may be a healing and connecting process to speak the unspeakable, to face and prepare for that moment of separation and the time that will follow it.

Contact me through katherine@walkinginspirit.net, or ring 07768 873449.

If you intend to or have already contacted a funeral director about the practical

arrangements, it's possible to request my services through them - just give them my details and ask them to contact me.

 

I would like to say thankyou for a lovely caring service, Although it's so sad to lose my mum, I'm pretty sure she would be proud
