I am a Humanist Celebrant, and I take non-religious and humanist funerals in and around Birmingham, Sandwell, Dudley and Solihull.
I decided to train as a Humanist Funeral Celebrant after attending a beautiful ceremony for a friend’s mother. I was incredibly moved by the apt choice of words and music, and by the balance of appreciation for a life well-lived alongside the mourning for the loss. It was both a joyful and sad occasion, full of laughter and tears. I knew then that I wanted to use my skills and experiences to help others in a similar time of need.
As you face the challenge of loss and organizing a funeral, I am happy to advise you about readings and music, and to discuss all options, so that the final ceremony is a reflection of both the deceased person and those who are left behind. I am helped in this by my background in the theatre, and my experience as a trainer in public speaking and other skills.
