Helping you with the loss of a pet
Pet Loss Support provides counselling specifically for those who have or will soon lose a much-loved pet.
Lives are transformed by the love and companionship pets bring. So, saying goodbye to a much-loved pet is always sad, difficult, and often traumatic. It affects people in many ways.
Sadly we sometimes lose our pets unexpectedly, ill-prepared and in shock, it can be difficult to come to terms with. Grief is a natural process and we grieve as humans, regardless of whether we are grieving for a pet or another human being.
If you have lost your pet in this way, we can help you through the grief process and help you to make sense of it all.
Working as a veterinary nurse for the last 13 years, I have helped and supported many distressed pet owners as they experience the challenges of pet loss. It was this that spurred me on to pursue a special interest in Pet Bereavement. I am passionate about supporting animals and their families when it comes to their final moments.
I understand how difficult losing a pet can be and I am available to help you, to support you, and to provide a safe environment in which to express your thoughts and feelings.
