Grief Counselling and Pet Loss Support

dealing with terminal diagnosis and loss during this most difficult time.

Our pets’ loyal and unconditional love is without equal which is why the grief of losing them can be especially difficult to handle.

‘Pets come into our lives, leave a mark on our hearts, and we are forever changed’ – anon.

By My Side can support pet owners dealing with terminal diagnosis and loss during this most difficult time.

As an animal lover and pet owner, I understand the love you share with your beloved pets and dealing with the loss of their companionship can be one of the toughest hurdles in life. It is for this reason that I aim to provide a comforting shoulder to support you during this period.

When you come to By My Side, you’ll be met with empathy and support from a qualified counsellor who understands your grief and is dedicated to help you through this trying time.

Being a counsellor is only a part of who I am.

I am an animal lover who has loved and lost. I have experienced grief on multiple occasions with pets and people and have since made it my aim to support others during such tough times.

About Me

I provide counselling for people of all ages.

I have personally experienced several losses in my life, be it pets or people, family or friends, these experiences brought about a sense of isolation and emptiness.
