Estella Hutchinson

Grief Counsellor, End of Life Doula, Funeral Advocate

Estella is an empathetic and dedicated End of Life Doula who is passionate about empowering others to make informed decisions about their end of life. Estella is committed to creating a personalised experience for each of her clients. She works closely with you to understand your unique needs and wishes, then, she helps to safeguard those wishes. 


End of life care is a deeply personal and emotional experience, and Estella's non-judgmental approach helps to ease the burdens and anxieties that can come with this difficult time. She is there to listen, provide comfort, and offer practical support, whether that means running errands, assisting you to medical appointments, or simply holding space for those who need it most.


Estella brings a calmness to what can be some of the most turbulent times of our lives. Her unique sense of humour makes talking about death, both comfortable and thought provoking. In her spare time she hones her comedy skills as a stand up comedian.


Estella has a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) which means she can interpret doctor speak! She has a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, a Graduate Certificate in Wellness and trains new End of Life Doula’s through the nationally accredited 10966NAT Certificate IV in End of Life Doula Services for Preparing the Way.
