Lesley Fraser - Scottish Independent Celebrants' Association

I have a 25 year background in bereavement and relationship counselling. I have been broadcasting and public speaking for over 20 years. A trained nurse, I have long held the conviction that helping relatives to say goodbye to their loved family members helps them to carry on despite their loss. I would have liked to have had this support when my parents died and also when my sister died suddenly at the age of twenty-nine.

I will create a service which reflects the life of the person who has died, in a way that is respectful and supportive to their relatives. A true celebration of their life. There can be as much religious content as required, or none at all. I live in Edinburgh, but travel all over to meet families and deliver their service. As well as funerals, I am happy to create celebrations for Baby Naming, Renewal of Vows and Wedding Celebrations.
