Hello, I'm Niall and I'm a Pet Bereavement Counsellor offering support sessions in person, by phone or over video calls (Zoom, Teams or Whats App) based in Hastings, East Sussex.
I've been an animal lover all my life starting in childhood with the usual range of cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and goldfish (won at the fair in those days).
In my adult life, cats have featured largely and in the present my focus is my beloved Welsh Terrier, Barney who is fifteen & a half years old.
The grief of losing my beautiful animal companions over the years has been hard and at times, overwhelming. It never seems to get any easier to handle however many times it happens. But the love always makes it worthwhile.
I hold an advanced diploma in Pet Bereavement Counselling(distinction) obtained from Living with Pet Bereavement and awarded by subject/industry expert, Dawn Murray.
I've been a volunteer for Samaritans and a community mediator.
I'm an Emotional Freedom Technique master practitioner(tapping) and a Reiki master.
It can be hard to reach out for help when we're hurting and in pain - often we think that we can manage alone. Sometimes though, we all need a sounding board and an ear to listen to our story without judgement or agenda. We just want and need to be heard.
Please get in touch, give me a call, you've already thought about finding help as you're reading this now.
You'll be glad that you did and it may just be the start to your healing process.
