About me

Hi, I'm Kiersten, I am the founder of Paw Hearts - Pet Bereavement Counselling Services. I offer Face to Face Counselling sessions to anyone struggling with the loss of their beloved pet. Currently unable to offer Face to Face sessions due to COVID-19.

During these unprecedented times, i am now offering Telephone and Online support. I specialise in Grief and Bereavement and i am available to anyone who is struggling with their loss due to all the restrictions imposed on us during this virus. For anyone who was unable to be present at the death of their loved one or was unable to attend the funeral for whatever reason. Please do contact me, i can help.

Given the intense bond we have with our beloved pets, it's natural to feel devastated by feelings of grief and sadness. The bond can be broken by death, loss, theft or enforced separation. Talking to a qualified Pet Bereavement Counsellor who understands grief, can help you to cope with your loss and the healing process.

If you would like to get in touch to find out more about what I can offer, or if you would like to arrange some time to talk please contact me by telephone or email. I can offer a safe space for you to explore all your feelings connected to the grief you are feeling following your loss. I am non-judgemental, I have enormous empathy and I am passionate about being able to offer this service to anyone who needs to access it.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Grieving Hearts

My experience is in Grief and Bereavement. I am a Bereavement Volunteer with Cruse and i would love to offer that experience to anyone who is also struggling with the loss of a loved one.

Grief can affect our daily lives in so many ways. We can feel we are going mad, feel angry, feel alone, feel depressed and lost, feel highly anxious with an inability to cope.

Sometimes, the cause of many of these symptoms can be Grief. Dealing with your Grief can help reduce these symptoms and enable you to adjust to your life around your loss.

It does not mean, that in doing so, you forget your loved one, it means that you are able to remember them more fondly and only reduce the more negative aspects related to Grief.

If any of this resonates with you, please do not hesitate to contact me. The initial consultation is free.
