FUNERAL SERVICE - testimonials
" Our Family were so happy with the kind and caring support you gave us and the wonderful service you prepared and delivered. It was a difficult time for us and we didn't know were to start with the preparations. We met you, you listened to every word we shared, and you guided us with ideas that inspired us to think of the uniqueness of dad's life and how to celebrate that. Marg thank you for helping us honour the beautiful person he was." (C - Ballarat)
"Following the sudden passing of our mother, we were fortunate enough to be recommended Marg. Marg made our mother's farewell such a beautiful celebration of her life.
It was such a calm relief to have you celebrate our mum's life with us and on the day, you truly became an extension of our family and the love we felt. Thank you again, for your beautiful words for my Mum, we so appreciated everything you've done".
Everyone in our family are very happy we chose you for P's service - you were excellent! Thanks again.
(RB. - Ballarat)
"I am so grateful for all your support and expertise and very happy with the beautiful service you presented for mum. I wanted to make this a celebration and you supported all the families ideas and made it happen. You captured the essence of who mum was and that was so important for me ... I wouldn't change a single word you said. Thank you."
"Marg, I want to thank you for being such a calm, sensitive guide for us with (C's) passing. I don't know what we would have done without you giving us such strength and compassion. Thank you so much for all your beautiful words and amazing effort you put in, I'm so grateful for your beautiful threading of all our stories together and being able to read them on our behalf. I had many comments about how special the whole day was and how well you did presenting so much with your calm manner. We could not have had such a special day without all your guidance and help." (LH - Geelong ... Family-led celebration of life & Memorial Service.)
"I wanted to thank you for your guidance and expertise. Not only did you handle the logistical aspects with efficiency and grace, but you also went above and beyond to extend a listening ear, offering words of solace and understanding. Your presence and guidance have made an indelible impact on our lives during this challenging time. We will forever cherish the memories created during K's celebration of life, and your genuine kindness and warmth made this incredibly special for us. Thank you."

END OF LIFE DOULA - testimonials
"A terminal diagnosis, a timeframe and a bundle of paperwork were given to us ... and we were numb, overwhelmed and had a thousand questions about what next . We are so very grateful for the end-of-life doula care and support that you gave us. Your calm presence and gentle guidance helped us to take a step at a time, as we found the resources we needed and put arrangements in place, so we could then have the sacred time we needed together. Thank you doesn't seem enough." (Anonymous: Ballarat)
"I am so grateful Marg for your unique holistic approach to supporting us as our End-of-Life Doula. Your Reiki treatments were an important part of relieving (N's) stress, calming his anxiety and giving him pain relief and comfort during his final weeks". (Anonymous - Ballarat.)
"My grief was consuming me each day, I was an emotional mess and I had lost confidence in myself and my future. Reiki sessions and your magic hands have helped me in so many ways and I have regained my confidence". (Anonymous)
"Marg has helped me enormously over a period of time when I had to deal with extremely distressing and traumatic events in my life. Marg's highly intuitive and deep understanding of the patterns, energies and behaviours that shape people's lives and interactions with others, has been an absolutely vital support for me as I worked towards re-creating my life in ways that are more authentic and self-sustaining. Marg's empathetic and deeply respectful ways of working are highly effective and very much to be recommended". (Kate)
