The Talking Dead Podcast

Rose and Nicole discuss all things related to death and dying on their podcast called The Talking Dead.

Advance Care Planning (ACP)

You've seen the detrimental effects of being unprepared - your own parents, a partner, a friend... How do you ensure your wishes are honoured if you are unable to speak for yourself?

ACP gives you peace of mind around

future health care decision making. 

Don't leave it till it's too late!

We will help you to develop an Advance Care Plan that will give you peace of mind for you and those who may need to speak for you.

Supportive Care & Consultancy

Have you, or someone in your family,

recently received an End of Life Diagnosis?

As End of Life Consultants, we are here to support you and your circle

in a variety of ways. We will walk alongside you,  

offering a listening ear and an understanding heart. 

End of Life Health Care

Navigation & Coaching

Navigating your way around the healthcare system can be

mind-boggling and a little overwhelming.

This service offers guidance, clarity and support with 

decision-making and treatment options.

 Events & Workshops

We are passionate about promoting death literacy and sparking conversations around end of life. We can tailor an education package to the needs of your group or workplace.

Topics include:

  • Advance Care Planning
  • How to Accompany the Dying
  • Compassionate Communities
  • Funeral planning and options
  • Caring at home

Complementary Consultation

MAY 2022

How has the rugged road been treating you?  We've certainly had some trying times. 

We're cautiously optimistic that life may be settling into a less tumultuous path from here.

Fingers crossed.

We are still busy working on various ventures. One of our main aims this year is to present our play, "The Last Waltz" a couple more times, after its success in Mansfield earlier this year. 

Click on this link to find out more about this show, and consider if you'd like to bring it to your community as a conversation starter, special event, or merely a stand alone work.


We have had a pretty eventful start to the year, and our circumstances have changed pretty quickly! 

It just goes to prove that you never know what's coming for ya!

Nicole has secured a counselling role with a local health service, supporting people who have been adversely impacted by the bushfires in our region. 

Rose is currently working in the community palliative care team in our region, and is loving the change and the challenge. 

These roles had a significant impact on our lifestyles, bringing new and exciting changes to our routines. We are still committed to our calling as End of Life doulas, and will continue to be involved with this work as time permits.

We will be continuing to offer Advance Care Planning via individual consultations and workshops.  

Thank you for your ongoing support and interest . We hope to see you somewhere soon!
