Penny Carroll

B Ed, M Ed Studies (Guidance and Counselling)

Penny Carroll has worked as an educator and counsellor for more than 20 years.
Pets have always been a part of Penny’s life. Her work as a grief counsellor had lead her into the area of companion pet loss counselling.

Currently working as a lecturer and counsellor, Penny Caroll has broad experience with both adults and children. In previous positions as teacher, in pastoral care and as school counsellor, much of her work has been in the area of loss and grief.

“I understand the many dimensions of pet loss, through both professional and personal experience. As an animal lover, animals have always been part of my life growing up and with my own children and grandchildren. I have a deep respect for all life, human and animal and for the human-animal bond that exists for many people.

I am a member of the Australian Guidance & Counselling Association, the Australian Counselling Association and the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement.

I am available for counselling at a number of venues in Perth and may be available for home visits when time permits.

I have developed a workbook to assist people in an ongoing way to understand grief, to look at and acknowledge their loss and also find ways to remember their beloved companion.”

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.
