Restoring Rhythm

Rosemary (Rosie) Saunders

I have worked for over 10 years as an occupational therapist in Ireland and Australia in mental health, acute, residential and community settings with adults. In 2020 I began my end of life and death doula preparation course. I am passionate about creating meaning, finding beauty and our shared connection.

The concept of using the healing properties of plants as a catalyst for our own innate healing abilities has always appealed to me. I became an Aromatherapist in 2022 to integrate my health and wellbeing knowledge, skills and abilities through a beautiful and gentle modality to nourish and nurture the mind, body and soul. Occupational therapy aims to maintain, promote and restore. It is a lifestyle approach working collaboratively to draw on our own inner wisdom and knowing, realise dreams, fulfill potential and live a balanced and satisfying life.

My intention is to accompany people on their journey whatever that may be and navigate together through life's meanderings, facilitate deep connections and create a sacred space to support all life transitions.

I have learned that death is our ultimate teacher and its definite presence inspires me to live a conscious life knowing that this life is both precious and fleeting. I believe we are here to experience life through all of our senses, to feel, to know and to be, the deep love that connects us all.

I offer a blend of creative and gentle care to nurture your body, still your mind and heal your heart.

I wish to support conscious living and dying by restoring rhythm, creating space for healing to take place, celebrating life and honouring death.
