Bereavement Counselling

It may be that following a bereavement you, or any of your family, feel you need some form of professional counselling.

Although we don’t offer a professional counselling service, we can if you wish, put you in touch with a local or national self-help group or counselling team.  These organisations are usually run by individuals who have had similar experiences to your own or will be able to put you in touch with someone who has.
