Services

Legal Marriages

I am here to co-create a legal ritual that truly celebrates this most important day of your life; a ceremony  that is truly authentic and meaningful for you and that bows to your deepest spiritual beliefs be they humanist, God-centred, cosmic or simply your own inner life-force.

Naming Ceremonies & Baptisms

Our name is our innermost soul signature, a fact that was so often ignored in traditional baptisms. I am here to heighten the heritage into which a child is born; to welcome and christen the new resident into the precious name chosen for them.

Funeral Services

Includes crematorium rituals and end of life support.
 

Rituals can greatly enhance the letting go of loved ones. Our Irish foreparents were keenly aware of this. Through singing such ancient songs of lamentation from the Irish tradition, I am convinced that marking the passing over of souls is crucial to the universal experience of death. 

Divorce/Separation Rituals

Up until now, churches in Ireland held that divorce, separation and the going of separate ways of couples were failures. Having experienced this pain personally, I know that what helped me in coming to terms with this particular loss was ritual and a real coming to terms with loss and ultimately a blessing too

Home, Office, Space Blessings

It is vital that we become friends with spaces that literally mean the world to us. Our home is where we retreat to and where we refresh our souls either with others or on our own. Having researched the power of sound to transform space and place, I am perfectly poised to create a ritual for you which will rejuvenate any of your meaningful life locales.   

Renewal Vows, significant birthday and anniversary 

We all chart our lives through the passing years from noting our birthdays to renewing our commitments to life forces and family. Celebrating such moments with ritual is a very rich form of remembrance.
