She was a co-founder, director and trustee of the Natural Death Centre (1991) of the Befriending Network (1994). Her work with the NDC and the BN have led her to appreciate the psychological benefits of preparing for death and of family-organized, environmentally friendly funerals.

After death communications following her husband’s death in a car accident in 2001 led her to research these phenomena.

She is a contributor to Rosalind Bradley’s book ‘A Matter of Life and Death’, (Kingsley, 2016).
