Carol Wales Welcomes You
End of Life Companion
I am an end of life Doula with a broad range of skills. Caregiver companions need a tremendous amount of patience and tact, exemplary training to act appropriately in emergency, and deep empathy to engage. Working independently and associatively, we are multi-tasking, problem solvers - from both an empathetic and emotional perspective. My training enables me to do this.
"love knows not it's own depth, until the hour of separation" Kahlil Gibran
I am an end of life carer/doula. Ultimately, all of my work is about holding space for people to experience a peaceful transition in whatever way, that presents to them. I now have over 15 year's experience in working alongside those that are leaving this world, as we know it.
It has been an interesting journey. I grew up on the shores of the Manukau Harbour and found, at an early age, a deep connection to plants and the sea. Great joy, came from touching the lives of people from many different cultures, including my own Dalmation heritage. I realised, I had the ability to sense people's needs, and that has allowed me to assist others, in a profound way.
This life journey, has taken me to many different countries, including a long spell working in England. Couple this with a wide range of skills including herbal medicine, aromatherapy, end of life (in many forms), funeral celebrations, and working with mental health clients in their homes has created a rich tapestry, of real world, as well as qualified, experience.
My personal mission, is to assist people in meaningful ways. It has been greatly enhanced by the privlege of caring for my own mum, while she was in care for some 10 years, when her memory changed. What a gift, she gave me.
Throughout our lives, I always feel, such deep, heartfelt love for her, and what she endured. I learned so much about the process of losing the part of ourselves, that communicates via speech.
This wonderful experience, has nourished me, and has provided a depth of love and understanding, for those I serve...
"So here I am, with the greatest of desire (Latin meaning for desire: Awake what the stars shall bring); and to accompany the dying through their process, their way, whatever that looks like, to them."
