Service Description

Other models of care involve 'fixing' or returning to an 'old normal'. Often people require a safe place to help discover what has changed, in different hope-filled ways. You are the expert. The Certified Thanatologist Specialist is here to pastorally bear witness to your journey and offer ways to reconcile the changes. Family members, friends and medical professionals can certainly do their best to help, but a professionally trained pastoral approach is a different type of choice that compliments the holistic approach to life and death. Online services offer privacy, comfort and accessibility. You can tailor surroundings to the comfort of your own home or office and you don't need to travel, saving time and effort. Internet connection is required; however in the event of a technology glitch our back-up plan will ensure a quick and seamless transition to reconnect. Online companioning sessions may seem unfamiliar to those who have not tried them. The same results as in-person sessions can be achieved. Here are some helpful tips to get ready for the session: - Staying in your comfy clothes if you would like - Choose a quiet location in your home that is private, and comfortable - Have a tea, get a glass of water or whatever you might need for the next hour - Have a blanket handy in case you need it - Maybe a pair of headphones for comfort, but not necessary - Have the box of tissues close by, you may need them sometimes. You will receive an invitation email with the link for your confidential zoom meeting. You simply click the link when it’s time for your session and follow any instructions. If you have any questions or concerns, you can phone {(705) 583-2212} or email (cindy@thanatology.online) with questions. We will make sure you are comfortable with the online experience. NOTE: A sliding scale rate is available. The sliding scale is a tool that allows for care to be obtained at multiple price points based on the circumstances of the client. The sliding scale represents the idea that financial resources, including income, are not and should not be the only determining factor in determining access to care.
