We know that the loss or illness of a best friend hurts and sometimes talking things through can help.

Whether you need support through the care-giving phase or help with the process of letting go, we offer a range of professional grief support services and promise to be with you.


Option One

University of Queensland Psychology Clinic Program for Grief Support

In 2018, Sunset Vets and the University of Queensland Psychology Clinic established a partnership to help support clients through the initial stages of grief associated with the loss of an animal companion.

This program allows for anyone struggling with the loss of a pet to access complimentary services by professionally supervised, provisional psychologists who are undertaking advanced postgraduate study in Clinical Psychology.

This is a referral based program that supports clients with up to 90mins of one-on-one support, as well as access to further subsidised consultations through the Clinic if additional follow up care is required. 

If you would like to apply for this support, please complete the form below.

Please Note: We welcome referrals from other veterinarians across Australia. Please get in touch to find out how we can best support your clinic.

Option Two 

Talking Animals – Specialised Animal Bereavement Support

For clients who would prefer to access private therapy sessions, support is provided by Tamzin Barber, an AHPRA registered psychologist with extensive experience in pet loss and bereavement.

Support is available by phone or Skype link up or via email with a written treatment plan.

Please get in touch for information and pricing and let us help you find the support you need.
