Linda Michie

I have 30 plus years experience in the helping field, a double Diploma in Counselling and Community Service Management, I am a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association and undertaking further studies in grief and loss and death and dying.

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 remember.

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 loss drives me to walk with others like you as you find your way through your journey. My
approach is all about you and is gentle in nature. My intention is to provide you with flexible
counselling options and primarily offer phone sessions, face to face at a mutually agreed
location or home visits and am generally available Monday to Saturday by appointment.

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.
