I am passionate about:
Living life and embracing death and dying.Supporting and coaching people at the end phase of life. Providing information and resources so people can make empowered choices and decisions to enable the best end of life experience possible.
A little known fact about me is:
I am a compassionate person who has a caring and respectful approach to life and death. I love nature and spending time with my family. I also love ritual, meditation and I am a Reiki practitioner. My secret passion is being an artist.

The End of Life Care
"Life life to the fullest. Embrace it. Love it. Be gratiful."
My deep interest and involvement in the end of life care, death and grief have been from my own personal life experiences. The illnesses and deaths of my brother, mother and father, and the death of our baby daughter Leteisha have enriched me with a caring and respectful approach to the living and the dying. Each of these experiences have moulded whom I am today and led me to this place where I want to create a space where information can be shared and where I can support people at the end of life as a doula & coach. I am an End of Life Doula & Coach, Community Educator & Facilitator.
Hi Paul and team, this is such a great idea. I am in Western Australia and have been educating and supporting people to have a Home death and Home Funeral experience for a few years now. I love the process and the closeness and connectedness and healing that it brings. But I also see the need for education and resources so more people can become involved and aware of their choices. I would love to hear more about your project as it transpires and connect with you about how I can be involved here in Australia. Thank's Nicolette Smith- The End of Life Care.
