Hi, I'm Katie
As a Soul Midwife and Funeral Celebrant, supporting all faiths and none, not only do I know and understand this world of death and dying, I appreciate and understand what you are going through.
I can support people in aiming for a gentle, dignified dying journey, a peaceful, personal death and then in creating a heartfelt, personal, connected farewell service. These ceremonies should, and will be, authentic, meaningful and done with nothing but love. And exactly as YOU want and need them to be.
Feel free to click my Facebook and Instagram links at the bottom of this page (on the right of the contact/enquiry form) to get a real feel for the work I do.
What's my ceremony style?
My voice is my superpower! I am a warm, compassionate soul who loves cake and loves to talk.
I work on ensuring my energy is as light and love filled as it can be, and on being as connected as I am able, to really ‘be’ with people when they need it most. I have a way with words, I speak from the heart in everything I do and have a deep intuitive calling for this work. I speak with true passion and experience. I pride myself on my openness and honesty that I can offer with love and positive intention. I can listen deeply, communicate freely, appreciate and respect your own unique journey and can conduct the ceremony that you and your loved ones need, want and deserve.
I am also a COFFIN CLUB CELEBRANT PLUS Celebrant ⭐️
Why choose Katie?
I have a deep level of understanding and connection to this world of death and dying that not many other celebrants will; having sat with the dying for many years in palliative care and as a Soul Midwife. I empower and support choice in everything I do
Now being able to expertly and authentically host a funeral, compliments the journey. My heart and Soul are committed to this end of life work and I truly believe everyone should have the unique, human and heartfelt send off they want, need and deserve.
Funerals are a gift to those left behind, and how they are conducted makes all the difference to our onwards journey with grief. They should be personal, reflect someones character and do them justice, in every way possible.

I support souls, and those who love them, before, during, and after death.
I am a Soul Midwife. We are non-medical, holistic companions to the dying and can facilitate a gentle and peaceful death. Soul Midwives draw on ancient skills and traditions, apply and adapt them to modern day life, and death, and treat dying as a rite of passage and a precious, sacred journey.
Working with all ages, races, cultures and faiths. It is about the soul, not just the human.
I am a Funeral Celebrant. After supporting that souls transition through death, I can support and honour them after. I support families to create bespoke services and celebrations, that honour the person for everything that that they were in this life. I promote choice, explore options and will do things as traditionally, or as uniquely as you wish.
I work with anybody that’s wants, and needs, that type of service and support. Isn’t that all of us?
I offer a bespoke and heartfelt script writing service for your loved ones final farewell. To do that, we talk and you have the space to share stories about the person you are representing.
I offer people the chance to be heard. I allow time and space to really get to the ‘know’ the person that has died and make sure I can then shine a light on their true characteristics, personality and tell their stories from the heart.
If required and requested, I can offer more help and support in organising the whole service by liaising with other supplies and working more closely with funeral directors/venues etc. Please do just ask and we can journey through it together. I understand and know this world very well.
I have conducted all types of services, long/short, cremation/burial, wakes in pubs, homes, hotels, and more, even a home burial!
Why choose Katie for your funeral?
Because quite simply, I get it. And I want to help make your service everything you want and need it to be. You have so many choices.
I have worked around death and dying for nearly 10 years in palliative and hospice care, in the community and a 1:1 companion as a Soul Midwife.
I am an honest, authentic, soul who has the ability to connect and understand you in a way not many other celebrants can. The funeral you organise is more than just a formality, it is something you will always remember, something special you want to gift to your family and most importantly, it is the poignant moment you remember. I can make that an open, genuine affair, with heart and soul. Not only can I do that clearly and eloquently, but also with passion and personality. I can deliver you a heartfelt, human and connected service that supports you and those you care about.

Katie was absolutely amazing. We asked for a non religious service with a Blue theme, warm, light hearted and a celebration. She really delivered and even wore a lovely blue top From the very first contact via Zoom, we as a family instantly felt Katie was perfect for us. Her delivery, warmth and understanding of our needs was truly exceptional. I personally have had many compliments regarding the service Katie provided. I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She made a tough day so much easier
Highly recommend Katie!
Katie was recommended to us by a friend of my auntie Tracey and we are so glad she was. During this really difficult time for us all as a family, Katie was on hand for anything we needed. She really took the time to listen to us talk about Tracey and we were astonished at how well she captured the essence of her and everything she was. She also helped us with our own scripts and shape the order of service. I can not recommend Katie enough, she was perfect in every way and really made a tough day a whole lot easier. Thank you Katie!
Katie couldn’t have done more. At such a difficult time Katie guided myself and my sisters in creating a personal and heart felt Celebration of life for our beautiful Mummy. The way she presented it was so inspiring and her words painted the most accurate picture of what our special Mummy was like – so much so that guests at the funeral actually asked if they’d met! From the bottom of out hearts, thank you Katie. I can’t recommend her enough x
