Memorable Farewells helps you move from loss and grief back to wellbeing


Are you grieving over a death in the family and now in mourning? Are you feeling lost, depressed and don't know what to do because of your grief? Are you recently divorced or separated, widowed, trying to cope with the death of a child or have experienced another significant loss? Are you the caregiver for a loved one who is terminally ill? Are you supporting someone else who has lost a loved one? Do you know what to say to those who have lost a loved one? Have you given yourself permission to grieve for what you have lost?

Bereavement and other loss naturally lead to feelings of grief. These feelings can affect different people in different ways and at different times. Acknowledging your feelings and the feelings of all who are affected by grief is vitally important to everyone's wellbeing on many different levels.

Memorable Farewells produces and sells eBooks - practical guides and information booklets - to support you, your family and those affected by loss through the stages of grief - emotionally and practically.

Memorable Farewells helps you acknowledge, affirm and say goodbye to your loved one and also helps you to move forward from loss to wellbeing.

About the author

Lisette Laval has worked for more than 20 years in the field of grief and bereavement here in Australia. She has closely supported many individuals and families in their times of crisis, death and bereavement.

Through the course of her work with the bereaved, Lisette observed that the language, behaviour and general attitude around death and bereavement had been disconnected from the feelings of those who are grieving, those who support the grieving, and those who work in the field of grief and bereavement.

In response to her observations she developed an approach to working with the bereaved that reconnected and integrated the language, behaviour and attitudes towards death and grief that help us move through the pain and sorrow into the light of wellbeing.

Lisette holds a degree in Administrative Leadership and a Diploma of Professional Counselling.
