Bereavement Counselling

When you lose a loved one due to bereavement, it can generate a wide range of feelings, including grief, anger, sadness, or guilt.

The way we each experience and manage bereavement is unique, and can differ due to a wide variety of factors, such as religious or cultural beliefs, family reactions, or how well you knew the person.

No matter the circumstance, be it family, friend, or co-worker, it can be very upsetting and feelings of sadness can be hard to overcome. If you find the sadness is affecting your life, or if you feel depressed or distressed, then accessing our counselling service would be a significant step forward on your bereavement journey.

Bereavement Counselling aims to help the person who has lost a loved one or friend to cope with the more usual feelings and symptoms associated with grief. It also aims to help the person reach a healthy and clear way forward in which they carry the positive memories with them as they continue their own journey of life.

Bereavement Counselling aims to help those who have lost someone to cope with the feelings and symptoms associated with grief, and to reach a healthy and clear path forward.  

Our Bereavement Counsellors are trained to understand that everyone experiences grief in a different way. It is a uniquely personal thing and each session is tailored to suit your circumstances and feelings. The counsellor will work with you to find ways of keeping some connection with your deceased loved one or friend so you still feel close whilst moving forward in your own life.

Currently we offer an initial 8 sessions of 45 minutes, after which you are able to discuss further sessions with your counsellor. Our counsellors are trained and have had ongoing support, undergo supervision and are interviewed, referenced, and DBS checked.
