End of Life & Death Planning : DIY Before You DIE

I’m Berni B, a trained Funeral Celebrant and End of Life Doula, I’m here to encourage you to talk about death and consider death planning.  “Do it Yourself, Before you Die”!

Do you feel confident that, if you suddenly became life threateningly ill your closest family and friends would know your wishes and preferences about your care?”


It is so important that others know both want we want and what we DON’T want

It is only fair that we help make the end of our life as easy as possible for those we love and leave behind.
Not only that, but death is a subject we all try so hard to avoid that very few of us are aware of all the options available to us.
I’m here to give you the time, space, information and tools to PRE-PLAN for the inevitable: DEATH.
Through group talks, coffee mornings, one-to-one conversations and family meetings, I want to help normalise the conversations and let you know your options.
Did you know, for example, that there is no legal requirement to use a Funeral Director? In fact the only legal requirement in the UK for funerals is that the death must be certified and registered, and the body must be disposed of.**
“Bernie is an amazing person, she is kind, caring, informative, compassionate and inspirational. I would thoroughly recommend her, she is a pink haired diamond, much love and huge thanks” – Oct 2021
