Services and Pricing

A selection of the services that Crossings can offer.

Counselling

Whether you choose Personal Therapy, Relationship Therapy, Family Therapy, Child Therapy or Grief & Loss counselling, Lola’s approach is gentle and personal, but just like ‘reality’, it can, at times, also be challenging and confronting. However Lola will support you through this journey, equipping you with new skills and strategies to better manage the challenges you are confronting.

Grief & Loss counselling is often accompanied with End of Life support services. Lola’s counselling can help to guide all members of a family through the stages of a terminal diagnosis, sudden death, funeral planning and more.

Lola is a qualified counsellor, holding;

  • Bachelor of Social Work – Academy of Social Sciences, Rotterdam
  • Diploma of Child & Youth Studies and Pedagogy – Institute of Study De Wind-Roos, Rotterdam
  • Diploma of Counselling – Australian Institute of Professional Counselling (ACA Accredited)
  • Accredited Death Doula – Life Options

End of Life Service

What is Farewell Guidance?

Farewell Guidance is the practice of helping people through their process of fare-welling life and loved ones, as well as guiding those loved ones through their own process of facing imminent loss and being supported in ‘letting go’.

Lola’s role is to create and hold a space of togetherness and warmth that supports everyone involved during this time of transition.

What is involved?

Lola will be involved through the last stage of life, helping you deal with the fears, tears, regrets and anything else that stands between you and a peaceful passing.

You may choose to share with me your Life Story. You might decide to hold a ‘Living Wake’ or many other meaningful rituals that evolve as Lola supports you through Farewell Guidance.

At other times, Lola might work with the family after their loved one has passed, helping them prepare for the home-vigil or funeral, if that is desired.

Together we can create a unique ceremony and funeral for your loved one. Lola will continue her support of the family with several after care visits.

Home Vigil

The central and most profound experience of the home funeral is the vigil or home wake. It usually involves keeping the body of the deceased in the home for one to three days after death.

During this precious time family, friends and community experience a spectrum of emotions and connect with each other in the privacy of the home. Often in the presence of the loved one’s body stories are told, old family wounds are healed and those present experience transformative moments.

PRICING

Prices vary greatly based on coordination, planning, funeral & celebrant choices, however Lola’s rates are very competitive.

Full home vigil $1000 – includes Natural After Death Care and a checking on the body for duration of the Vigil.
