One-to-one bereavement counselling
Support is based on need, and may vary from a telephone call or a chat over a cup of tea to bereavement counselling where issues can be worked at in depth.
Meetings can either take place in the Hospice’s private counselling rooms or your own home.
How long can I expect support?
We consider bereavement to be a natural process. How long it takes varies from a one-off contact to ongoing contact. Bereavement workers will regularly review your needs with you and work towards a mutually agreed ending.
If you find you do not feel comfortable with your bereavement worker, or would prefer to work with someone of a different gender or age, you can ask to see someone else at any stage in the process.
