So who am I?  
 
Well, my name is Lizzie, I’ve been married to Mark for 23 years and we have two lovely grown-up children Jade and Ben. We also have a household of dogs and cats that rule the roost if I am honest!

I love baking, walking in the forest, playing cards, board games  and generally enjoying life.
 
​Prior to completing my Diploma in End of Life Care 
I have worked for the past 9 years as a volunteer at Salisbury Hospice In-Patient Ward which I love doing.  Alongside this I have spent 5 years as a Psychologist Assistant volunteer working on Pembroke Ward (Cancer ward) at Salisbury Hospital. During 2014 I was fortunate enough to be asked to attend home visits as well.  It was during this time I realised just how tough and lonely this journey could be and so I decided to train as a End of Life Doula. 
 
In 2016 I studied at the renowned Living Well Dying Well Centre in Lewes, East Sussex and passed my Diploma in End of Life Care. 
 

I truly believe that dying has become very clinical and it really doesn't need to be like that.  I'm so passionate that this is your journey, so your wishes and desires will be met to the best of my ability.
 
What I think is most important to remember is that when I look at you I will see a person not a patient.  I will see someone as alive not someone dying.  As your companion I will neither lead nor follow. I will always ensure your Privacy, Dignity and Confidentiality is paramount.
 
It is a great privilage to be able to work in end of life care and I feel comfortable and confident that together you and I can  
walk this journey together, side by side. 

My very best wishes

Lizzie
