Hello, I’d like to introduce myself and share with you a little about me, my work and how I might support you. I am married and live on a beautiful property in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland with my husband and our 15 year old Maltese/Bison Frise named Tilly. Raising 4 daughters Tilly became the 7th member of our family and brought a package of huge love which has supported us all immeasurably over that time.  On a career note, I have primarily spent my professional life in the fields of caring and supporting others in their health and wellbeing. From nursing/midwifery to working in crisis intervention (Tilly sometimes my offsider), working with disengaged youth in education, to running my own H&W clinic, I have had the privilege supporting others when they recognised they needed assistance at a critical moment or juncture in life. 


Losing a pet or simply the prospect of losing a pet can be a very confronting time. Over the course of my life, I have experienced the loss of my own pets and it was a time of feeling fragile and vulnerable. In the passing of our pet, we are offered another relationship with them. This becomes a very healing space of deep appreciation and understanding the purpose they have in our life. I have found that when we open ourselves to this on a deeper level, we understand our grief in a more acceptable and healing way, and this can support immensely with the grief process. Grieving can actually become a much lighter experience.


I look forward to supporting you as grief moves through you.


With Care,



Lynne Paull-McLoed 

Lynne Paull-McLeod - I live in an inner suburb of Brisbane and specialize in the areas of bereavement, grief and loss, family and relationships, palliative care, and crisis intervention counselling. I have a Diploma in Counselling and am a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA).

Throughout my life I have always had an animal of some sort sharing my home and for many years I owned an ‘uncaged’ cattery. My connection with the animals on a deeper vibrational level made it possible for them to roam free. Growing up in the country with a menagerie of animals there were always tales to tell. We had a blue cattle dog that would howl every time my father played his trumpet, proud and willowy geese that decided we needed protecting and became our ‘watch dogs’, gentle milking cows showing us how to be content with our lot, and a bunch of mischievous pet lambs that always managed to get into the garden and gobble up my

mother’s prized flowers. During those precious years I developed an understanding of the bond that grows between people and their animals and to know the loss one feels when a beloved animal passes over.

I offer a space of safety where you are given the opportunity to allow your grief and feelings of loss to be honoured.
