My name is Fiona and I live in North West Sydney. I have owned, loved and lost animals all my life and have felt the incredible pain of grief when they’re gone.
In my experiences personally and professionally, I feel sad that few people understand the realness of what some of us feel when we no longer have our best friends by our side. Well meaning friends tell us she’s in a better place now, that we were lucky to have her and maybe we just need to get another pet. We are encouraged to move on and forget when all we want to do is stay with them and remember. We feel unheard and lonely, that we’re over reacting and there must be something ‘wrong’ with us. Our grief may become disenfranchised – or unvalidated.
As a person centred counsellor I take time to understand you. We work together to explore your relationship with your pet and your changed life since they’ve gone. By providing a safe space for you to feel your emotions around grief, together we work to integrate your loss and grow through it. Grief is Love – it happens in our heart not our head and needs to heal through connection and support.
I offer counselling by Zoom, phone or face to face

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.
