A heart centred, connected approach to individualised end of life care.

My mission is to help people to develop a relationship with death and dying that is spiritually connected, liberated from fear and individually meaningful through acceptance, compassion and faith.

I support people from all spiritual backgrounds, creeds, races and genders. I aim to provide an individualised end-of-life experience, catered to the needs and wishes of the individual.

Allow me to walk you home at the end of your life journey, in a way that suits you.

About Doula Jo

I have a background in aged and disability care. In fact, I was a carer for over 20 years. Through this time, I have had the privilege of supporting people from all walks of life and in all kinds of situations, including spinal injuries, intellectual disabilities, aged care and of course, palliative care.

In this time, I have had the honor of holding many hands as their Earth journey came to an end.

I learned that, in our society, death has become something clinical, something hidden, something separate from us, and it is this separateness that creates fear and anxiety around the inevitable. My aim is to bring everyone, not just the dying person, back into connection with the dying process. To reconnect us with the sacredness of this significant life event. So that we may all feel more connected, both physically and spiritually.

After all, death is our birthright. It is what ultimately gives life it’s meaning.

I’d really like to connect with you and find out how I can support you through this end-of-life transition. And if you will allow me, may I walk you home at the end of your Earth journey.

Hannah and Saffy

Last year my dog, Saffy, got diagnosed with cancer after a series of terrifying seizures. Saffy was closer to me than any human in my life, she had taken care of me as much if not more than I had taken care of her for 10 years. The sudden realisation I would lose her shook my entire world apart. In the panic I realised I’d have to decide what to do with her after she was gone and I felt like I was lost in a hurricane of emotions and decisions I had to make. I kind of remember when ...

A Death Doula, also known as an End-of-Life Doula, is a support person who provides non-judgemental, non-medical holistic support to those nearing the end of life or who have received a terminal diagnosis.
