Bereavement counselling

Bereavement counselling

Should you feel that professional help is needed by you or any of your family, we can suggest positive steps for you to take and to guide you in the right direction although we do not have our own in-house bereavement counsellors.
Firstly we may suggest that your General Practitioner or Minister of the Church could give you guidance and support in the difficult times immediately following bereavement.
Additionally we can put you in contact with one of the local or nationally recognised self-help or counselling groups which are run by individuals who will have either been through experiences similar to yours or can put you in contact with those who have.
