Hello there. I’m Linda, pleased to meet you. I have always had a great love of all
creatures great and small and a genuine desire to help others as far back as I can

I have had animals (cats, dogs, birds, fish and even a lizard or two to name a few) all my
life. Sadly, in 2017, I said goodbye to one of those very special pets we meet along the
way, my beautiful black Burmese rescue cat, Merlot, he was with me for 18 years. I was
heartbroken, finding the absence of his presence one of the hardest things.

My journey through loss drives me to walk beside others as you find your way through
your journey. My approach is gentle in nature and very much focused on you. I offer
flexible counselling options (you are welcome to browse my website to learn a little
more) including phone sessions, face to face at a mutually agreed location or home
visits and am generally available Monday to Saturday by appointment. Phone sessions
may also be available Sundays and public holidays on request.

Our relationship with our pets is unique, they are such a constant in our life and the
loss of that relationship is immeasurable. We face many challenges as we watch our
pets age, as we support them through illness, as we prepare to say goodbye and as we
find our way after they are gone. Wherever you are in your journey, please reach out,
I’m here.

My thoughts are with you. Linda.

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.
