Funeral Celebrant Courses

Sally is not only a compassionate death care advocate, she is also a passionate educator.  She genuinely wants to change the way we experience death, funerals and grief in Australia.  Sally is insightful, experienced, passionate, honest, a great communicator and provides great practical knowledge in getting started in the death care industry.  After 2 days of training, I know I still have so much to learn, but I feel energised, supported and excited to work in this field and hopefully provide the same care and compassion that Sally has provided to so many families.  Samantha Harris
