Celebrant Services Offered
My name is Yvonne Roberts and I am 55. I am a mother to two lovely young men (yes I am a VERY proud mum of Daniel and Dean) and a grandmother to Jazzmin
Why did I decide to become a Civil Celebrant? It was a natural progression for me after spending the last 26 years in sales, working with, advising and motivating others. I became disenchanted with the hard sell of sales. I wanted to just help people to get to where they wanted to go but with huge, often unachievable sales targets, my natural empathy and desires were stifled.
I have been in sales for the past 24 years from toilet rolls to Christmas crackers to party ware and most recently designing and supplying care homes and hotels. 2 years ago I completed my PTTLS (basic teaching skills) with a view to progressing my staff training skills. Amongst my very obscure skills and certification are balloon decorating, pitman script shorthand, Reiki master, Swedish masseur; Indian head massage, advanced theta wave healing to name but a few!
Over the past 20+ years, I have been on a journey to understand the meaning of life from a spiritual perspective. This is not a religion, it is a set of beliefs to lead a more meaningful and compassionate way of life. For the past 10 years, I have been running my own spiritual centre (www.thecentre-
What this journey has given me is an understanding of the deeper needs of human beings as an individual. Each one of us has needs as unique as our own DNA! However, the one thing that is true for each and every one of us is the need to be heard, to be loved and to be recognised for who we are
I believe this understanding helps me to be with someone through their personal journey whether it is the pain and sorrow of a funeral of a loved one; the joy and happiness of a wedding blessing or the joy of introducing their child to the world. I know I will help them to be able to express what they are feeling through the work I do. I can be that conduit to bring what’s in their hearts and mind to life through the ceremonies I will create with them
I believe I have come to a place in life where its more important to do what brings me happiness rather than to confirm to what others expect of me. My happiness comes in the form of helping others to find their place of peace or happiness. I truly believe I can help you find what’s really import for you, even when you are not sure yourself.
