Every person and every pet is unique. Our experience of grief when we lose a pet is also unique.

While there is no one right way to grieve, sharing your grief and seeking support from those who understand how profound the loss of a beloved pet can be, can help.

Diane Sparkes is a counsellor who understands first-hand how precious our pets are to us and how painful losing them can be. She also understands how difficult end of life decisions often are and has developed a quality of life questionnaire to assist clients in making those hard decisions.

Sad Tails can provide face-to-face counselling support to pet owners in the Newcastle area of Australia.
