I’m Estella, a life long cat lover. It never gets easier when our animals die and I noticed within my grief counselling practice a lot of people who had unresolved grief from the loss of companion animals at earlier points in their lives, which is why I look to specialise in the area of companion animal loss grief counselling.

I run a fee for service mobile counselling business throughout Canberra and surrounds – that means I come to you! There is nothing more special than supporting someones grief in their own home and being shown the collar and/or lead from a lost pet. I am also able to provide counselling via Zoom.

Pet Loss Counsellors

Why invest in professional counselling?

Not all counsellors specialise in grief and even less deal with the grief associated with Pet Loss. That's why we created this directory to help connect pet owners with qualified and experienced pet loss counsellors.

How much does it cost?

Fees and charges will vary by service provider, please contact your preferred counsellor to discuss your options.


Are there free services?

Yes, please visit the Grief & Bereavement Support Services page.

Here you will find our recommended partners, friends and organisations who offer a mixture of free and donation based support.
