End of Life Doula


Michelle has completed her End of Life Doula training with Douglas College as of January 2020. With all of her previous experiences, both in the realms of counselling and mediumship, Michelle is offering her services now to help people and their families with end of life choices, wishes, and preparations.

Some key aspects an End of Life Doula can help support and facilitate are:
• Advance Care Planning
• Family discussions about end of life wishes, and how to best honour the needs of the ill loved one
• Occasional respite for primary caregivers of a terminally ill loved one
• Vigil planning and support
• Provide local options and information about end of life planning, including resources that will help both the ill loved one and their family
• Offering emotional (and if desired, spiritual) support as well as non-medical alternatives for pain relief (such as guided meditation, drumming, aromatherapy, music, etc.) to the terminally ill loved one

End of Life Doulas are not nurses, nor are they funeral directors; they are there to be an emotional support to those who are preparing to make their final transition to the realm of Spirit. We all strive to live “good” lives and yet when it comes to the topics of ‘death’ and ‘dying’ we so seldom give too much thought or consideration to our final wishes. Our transition to spirit can be as meaningful and sacred as we choose.

For those who would like to transition at home, or in hospice care, an End of Life Doula can be a tremendous support to both the dying and the family that surrounds them. Not there to take charge or offer solutions, but there to facilitate difficult discussions, and to create a space of calm, peace, and beautiful energy for those who are navigating their final and most significant passage in this life as they journey to the next.
