After training and practising as a registered nurse Jane pursued her deep love of nature through a career in horticulture with the National Trust.
Her own experience of being stopped from going to her own father’s funeral when she was ten and the subsequent silence concerning his death gave Jane an interest in marking life’s passage through ceremony. She trained in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy in the 1990’s and in ritual and celebrancy with Welfare State International in 2003-2004.
Jane’s manner is warm and sympathetic. She brings a strong sense of love, spirit and ritual to the ceremonies she conducts.

It takes place over several months, so that each celebrant can provide you with a safe pair of hands, listen to you carefully, treat you with warmth and kindness, and inspire you towards the best funeral you can have for your loved person – one that is moving and memorable, something to cherish always.
