Pauline Garnett, Managing Director of GoodCounsel Limited, based in the Yorkshire Dales, has set up a second venture. Pauline, who lives in Wensleydale has trained to become a professional celebrant and is a member of the Association of Professional Celebrants.

Pauline started her first business in 2012, ‘GoodCounsel Limited’ which is an independent consultancy business, specialising in leadership and coaching development alongside providing interim HR director level service for short term needs and special projects.

In addition to this Pauline works as a business coach, supporting people who are seeking to develop their careers. She is also a trustee for Samantha Sykes Foundation Trust, a charity helping vulnerable young adults leaving care, who need extra support for further education.

During Pauline’s career in HR she has supported those who were marrying, having children and terminally ill employees and their families. This all contributed to Pauline’s decision to become a celebrant.

Pauline said:
‘It is important to celebrate life and I work with families and relatives to ensure we create the service they really want. it’s my passion to create personalised and meaningful rituals for any life event. I listen to personal stories and ideas of the perfect day to create a ceremony that makes memories."

In Pauline’s role as a celebrant, she can deliver completely tailored services to celebrate weddings and namings – incorporating historic traditions and modern twists and always encouraging diversity and inclusivity.

Cremations and burials across North Yorkshire, Teesside and Wear Valley. Your choice of what you would like in the service for your loved one. Pauline can design an individual service with you that can include your favourite songs and hymns, poems, readings and personal tributes. Working with local funeral directors to support you.

Though her working career has been global from the Shetland Islands to Saudi Arabia, she is now firmly home. A Yorkshire lass in the Yorkshire dales.

Pauline adds:
‘I love living and working in Wensleydale. My husband Michael and I enjoy exploring with our dog Gracie. We are natural entrepreneurs in Yorkshire and we are immensely fortunate to have some outstanding businesses here.
