We run a group called You n’ Taboo which exists as an information and education service, holding events, talks, education sessions and other meetings in order to help people understand not only their rights, but what is possible and how to make it happen if they would like to have more say and involvement in their own end of life and death care or that of people they care for. As and End of Life Doula and an Independent Funeral Director I am also able to provide these services if families would like to engage me to do so. Families remain as much a part of the journey and they wish and I remain a support and guide.
I was a commercial funeral director for years before becoming independent to take a family and community approach to dying and death. I am a prescribed business under the Tasmanian Law. I am also a qualified End of Life Doula, listed with the Australian Doula College.

The natural burial and holistic death and dying ‘space’ is a global community focussed on ideas and practices which really matter to people’s lives. For too long the power has been taken away from individuals around these decisions of significant consequence. You ‘n Taboo are champions of the trend to lift the veil on these issues. Their activities and community engagement are not only starting the conversation. Thanks to the experience of You ‘n Taboo’s facilitators – Rebecca and Edwin – they are assisting people to prepare, act and take charge!
If you have ever pondered the inevitability of your death, or perhaps that of your loved ones, you may have been greeted with the far-too-common experience of being completely overwhelmed. Rebecca, Edwin and the team at You ‘n Taboo have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are stalwarts of the death literacy movement in Tasmania. As a funeral celebrant and biographer, it is wonderful to see You ‘n Taboo promoting natural alternatives to traditional burials and it is reassuring to know my clients have access to knowledgeable and friendly people to sit with and chat about this ‘great unknown’ we call death
I have found Bec & Edwin to be individuals of great integrity, deep compassion and clear wisdom. They balance these with an intricate knowledge of the processes of death and dying as practiced here in Tasmania as well as the possibility elsewhere. I consider them to be clear sighted and generous in the sharing of their accumulated insights. As an end of life doula, I’m grateful for their guidance.
