Gentle and caring approach

Sally has a gentle and caring approach, and her insight has provided me with a “safe” environment within which to experience and address uncomfortable issues.

Insightful and objective

Sally never fails to be both insightful and objective and brings clarity to the most apparently complex situations. It is less that she has all the answers but rather that she provides a space in which answers arise naturally. Above all else her integrity shines through.

Genuine, sensitive care.

I am deeply grateful for the service that you provided for me and my family as celebrant for my wife K’s funeral.  The genuine sensitive care, dignity, sound advice, decision support and added value which you provided as celebrant was exceptional and very much appreciated at a time when I was feeling lost.

What a difference you have made

I don’t think you realise what a difference you have made, in such a positive way, to such a traumatic time for us. You ‘held our hand’ throughout and listened so carefully.  The detail you included within the Service was extraordinary. So thank you for your patience, kindness and encouraging words at times when we needed them so much. The funeral was beautiful.

You made a difficult day much easier for me

Thank you so much for the lovely service that you conducted for J yesterday. It flowed so well and many friends commented that it was “the best funeral they have ever attended”. That was thanks to the way that you conducted the service with sensitivity and passion for your work. I will certainly recommend you to any friends that may need the services of a celebrant. Thank you again, Sally. You made a difficult day much easier for me.

You captured the very essence of her throughout

I  felt so very comforted today during A’s service. Thank you. You captured the very essence of her throughout.  How you do that from the bitty-talking-over-each-other- anecdotes, tales and emotion flying about when we met you is phenomenal.

You take extra care of us in times of sadness

We cannot thank you enough for the way in which you delivered Mum’s funeral. Everyone commented on how well it went and that Mum would have enjoyed the day. I know its your job, but feel you do take extra particular care of people and us in times of sadness. Your kindness and understanding at a time in ones life when your emotions don’t always let you think straight, is so much appreciated.

Things ran so smoothly

I am particularly grateful for your own wonderful words on the day which absolutely resonated with who K was to us all.  Your handling of everyone’s input to the order of service and your pivotal role in ensuring that things ran so smoothly on the day was superb.  I would be very happy to recommend your services to any of my family, friends or colleagues.

Kindness and Consideration

Thank you so much for your kindness and consideration yesterday. Regardless of people’s beliefs, the service you gave for Mum showed her warmth, kindness, sense of humour and values that anyone would be proud to have. It had certainly an appropriate tone for Mum.

Just a big ‘thank you’ for the service yesterday

It was beautiful and fitting and everyone commented on what a lovely service it was. Thank you for your patience and preparation as it ensured everything went smoothly, and for your kind words. I was so pleased I read my tribute to Dad. I think he would have been proud of us all for a job well done! We would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone that needs your services.

More peace and understanding

You have helped me stop tormenting myself about the past, freed me from seeking approval from those who will never give it, and have a more peaceful and understanding relationship with my children and husband. Even with all this I am not perfect, but I will allow myself to be truer to myself and find my strength again.

Calmer, less anxious and more focussed

‘I thought I was a confident career-minded person and when ill health struck and my whole life collapsed around me I knew I wanted some help and yet resisted every step of the way. I should not have… I became calmer, less anxious and focussed on what I really wanted the future to be. Sally’s invaluable, calm, honest and open feedback have opened the way to a clearer path.

Thank you for the profound sense of comfort

Thank you for the profound sense of comfort –  in so clearly recognising the sadness at what should have been for A alongside the making space to say our goodbyes. It was a beautiful service, just so absolutely right for A and those of us fortunate to have the opportunity to be there.

Everyone said what a beautiful service it was

Everyone said what a beautiful service it was and that you spoke with real warmth when recounting D’s life and interests. You included so many details and brought a smile to all our faces when talking about D teaching us practical skills. We couldn’t have had a better celebrant and really appreciate all you did and said to make it a wonderful ‘send off’.
