Service Description

We are here to support those dealing with anxiety related to death, dying and grief regardless of where they are in their own life journey. Death, dying and grief can be heavy, confusing and intimidating topics to deal with, and it is our mission to aid in making sense of it all. We are here to assist those supporting someone in the dying process, and to help with any and all necessary parts, including your self-care and emotional and spiritual well-being. We are here to support those struggling with death, dying and grief anxiety for any reason at all. Death anxiety refers to the fear of and anxiety related to the anticipation, and awareness, of dying, death, and nonexistence. It typically includes emotional, cognitive, and motivational components that vary according to a person's stage of development and socio-cultural life experiences (Lehto & Stein, 2009). Thanatophobia (death anxiety) is extremely common, and our doulas are in a unique position to assist in the calming of this anxiety. We are able to do this in a variety of ways depending on the client- but support can include simply talking about death (exposure), outlining fears so that they become tangible, relaxation/mindfulness techniques, and more.
