I share a vision with many
to reclaim death as a natural part of life supporting us to meet death with informed choice, humanity, love and compassion
When death touches your life, what are your choices?
I invite you on a journey to find out...
My service to you comes straight from the heart
Let's get back to what we know
This is a social enterprise and holistic service empowering you to travel a deeper, more peaceful journey with death, dying, funerals and ultimately, grief.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was fortunate enough to have engaged Relle to be by my side as I walked through the final weeks of my mum's life, then ultimately having Relle beside me as I prepared for the funeral, and support after the event. Relle's calm, gentle, professional manner enabled me to consider many options around what I really wanted to do concerning mum's care and also the funeral. Her support was invaluable. It has allowed me to experience a healthy grief with no regrets, and beautiful memories. I could not recommend Relle more highly to anyone who is looking for amazing support, insight and dedication. Thank you Relle for everything you have done for me and my family, through one of the most difficult times in life.
