Pet Bereavement Counselors:

There are literally hundreds of people who are now counseling in pet bereavement, and it is not possible for the APLB to register them all. Some hesitate to be listed in any directory, others are first discovering the benefits of this wonderful service, and many more are still unknown to us. We welcome all new applicants to contact us directly by mail or online at This listing is arranged according to geographical location. We are pleased that every counselor registered here is a member of the APLB.

The challenge for many people dealing with the loss of a beloved animal friend is one of getting understanding and support from those around them who have never experienced this unique bond.  Sinead assists her clients in understanding the grief process, while validating their feelings, and helping them sort through the many ups and downs of the process.  She brings to this calling a wealth of compassion, empathy, and love for those who have benefited from the joys of animal companionship.
