Hello, I'm Relle - I'm bringing to you my passion for service. What I've learned from both formal and informal doula work is each moment at end of life is deeply emotional, personal and defining, deserving our full attention. We can see each moment as precious, even where there is great emotional pain and suffering. We can 'be present' to someone in their dying process and after death by tapping into our innate ability for love and compassion. It's built into us, it's our human response. Let's cultivate these abilities to usher the ones we love, and ourselves, towards 

our inevitable deaths. Love is our greatest gift to each other. Love is our guide on this journey from life to death. Let love shine a light on all our fears.

It is my intention to support you and your family to build your resources and reserves to travel the road towards death with more room for choice and peace on this extremely raw and incredibly intense journey. Whether that's through end of life and/or after death planning and care, you will encounter my support as authentic, compassionate, resourceful and meaningful, meeting you exactly where you are on your journey.

Along my own life journey, I have gathered experience and skills in supporting people whilst working in the community mental health sector, through past and ongoing training, my own experiences and inner work. I have supported many people through difficult and challenging life events and transitions, and have grown in my capacity to do so with strong ethics, integrity and reflective practice. If I can be of service to you, I'd be incredibly honoured. If we're a good fit, we could take it from there. If not, I can connect you with someone else. Situated near Kempsey on the Mid North Coast of NSW, I work from Coffs Harbour to Taree and anywhere in between.
