ABOUT ME

Meet Doula Cindy

Doula Cindy Carless of Omaru, based in Randburg, SA, invites you to connect for transition and end of life companion doula services. Cindy’s diverse career and life experiences make her a Dependable, Objective, Understanding, Listening and Appreciative companion through life’s transitions. Cindy’s heart of kindness and care opens in connecting with others. Cindy brings compassion and wise hope in being there with others when life as they know it changes whether through retrenchment, retirement, divorce, death, career uncertainty or new life stages.

What is a doula? It’s from the Greek word for women of service. A doula is a person trained in giving emotional comfort to someone who is going through a life changing period, often brought about by loss also often used during births.

About The Work

Are you at an emotional crossroads in life? Feeling overwhelmed and uninspired to deal with change and move forward? What threads do you have on the loom of your life?

I am here to inspire you to create your own beautiful masterpiece as a doula. The doula work I do is a process to work with your emotional balance during change and transitions. We will get to know each other in a free session. We will then identify your emotional scale calibration in caring, collaborative conversation. The next step is to identify where you need a doula or companion and what small action/s we can take together to start to bring balance to the chaos that often accompanies change and transitions. Finally we bring it all together in a structure you can refer to for emotional balance. I call this your masterpiece.

• Ask me about creating a living will or advanced care directive for life’s pivotal moments including a ‘what if’/ life file.

• Allow me to offer you dependable, objective understanding as I listen and guide you through an appreciation of life during illness, loss and any other unexpected experiences.

THE WHY
