Jackie O’Carroll

I trained as a general and children’s nurse many years ago, and worked in various settings in the NHS, in Manchester, London and Liverpool, including 3 years as a sister on a neonatal unit and as a very happy school health nurse. When I had my son I took a break and completed a degree in literature and history – one of the best and most challenging things I have ever done!

I left nursing in 2000 and worked in Social Services with children in care and then managed Disabled Children’s Services for 2 years. In 2004 I left the public sector and had lots of different experiences, including having my own consultancy business. I also trained as a Life Coach, completed a post-graduate diploma in emotional intelligence and last year worked as a home help.

I bring all this experience and all my skills to the End of Life Doula role, offering practical, emotional and spiritual support to families and people approaching the end of life.
