My name is Annie, and I’m based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I really believe this work has called me to it. I have a deep passion for getting to know death, intimately. I believe we need to talk about death more, with our loved ones, AND as a community. When it’s treated like the elephant in the room, it’s no wonder people are fearful as their life comes to an end.

We’ve been told there is only one way to die, but there are many options.

I come from a large family, and have experienced deaths, both sudden and expected, during my life to date. When my mother died, 15 years ago, I had a profoundly healing experience. I want to support others in having the same.  My father is elderly and approaching the end of his life, and doing this work helps me have those difficult conversations with him. Having a large family, means that by default, I am going to experience a lot of death in my life. I want to get comfortable with it. I don’t proclaim to know everything about death, but will do my very best to provide answers and support wherever I can.

I’m also passionate about co-creating beautiful, meaningful, and healing Funerals/Ceremonies. A good send-off can make all the difference in the healing those who are still here.

I recently trained with an amazing woman, Zenith Virago from Byron Bay. It is simple but powerful work that she teaches.

I look forward to working with you, and would be happy to have a free 30 minute chat (online or in person), to talk about what you need, and what I can offer. Then we can see if we are a good fit for each other. You can request a chat via my contact page, or book in on my facebook page.

Pricing

Knowing that every situation is different, I offer flexible pricing to suit. For Death Doula services, I usually go with an hourly rate (currently $80/hour), which can be negotiated if an extended service in needed.

Funeral ceremonies I can offer at a fixed price, once we know what you want and need.

I am happy to discuss this with you, in our free initial chat.
