A bereavement or loss can be one of the most traumatic and stressful periods in a person's life. There are times when it becomes difficult or impossible to cope with this alone, or it may not be appropriate to involve friends or family with your problems.
It is at times like this when you may feel it would be useful to talk to someone who is not personally involved with your bereavement or loss.
The counsellor is there to listen to your thoughts and feelings about your loss. They will not judge you or try to tell you what to do.
The counsellor's role is to help you find your own answers by sharing their understanding of your experiences.
Sometimes counselling might be suggested by your family, a friend, your GP or other health professional.
We recommend that you contact us yourself, unless you feel unable to do so.
