Bereavement Support & Counselling

Losing a loved one is always difficult and there is lots to sort following a bereavement. Our Bereavement Support Team are here to help you with practical support in the days and weeks following a loss. They can help you with anything that might be needed, from registering the death to arranging the funeral, writing letters and sorting through personal effects.

Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to family or friends when you have experienced a loss or when you have a problem, or to confide and explain how you are feeling.

Our friendly team are here to listen and help you in a safe and confidential setting. All our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and work in an ethical and professional way.

Our team can offer help and support to deal with bereavement, pre-bereavement and a variety of other emotional issues.

How to be referred

Anyone who has been bereaved can be referred to the service. This can be by means of self-referral; by referral from another family member or friend; or referral by another agency or health/ care worker that they have contact with. The only stipulation is that the bereaved person agrees to being referred to the service.
