How we can help

We offer counselling and other support to people of all ages who have experienced a bereavement, significant loss, or life changing or limiting illness.  We also work with people who are trying to cope with anticipatory grief, i.e. you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. We recognise that bereavement impacts everyone differently, and that some bereavements can feel a lot harder to talk about than others, such as those associated with suicide, or a traumatic incident.  We also know that the impact of bereavement isn’t always immediate, sometimes people start to struggle months or even years down the line, or just feel very stuck in their grief when it feels as though everyone else has moved on.

Accessing counselling can help you to make sense of what you are experiencing, regaining a sense of control, express your emotions, and empower you to make the changes you want to see in your life.

Bereavement Support Groups

We recognise that not everyone who experiences a bereavement or loss needs specialist counselling in order to be able to feel like themselves again, and because of that we have started to offer support groups where you can meet other people in a similar position to yourself and learn some skills to help you to cope with your own circumstances.

To find out if there are bereavement support groups in your area please follow the link or call us on our Head Office number 01782 683155.
