Support after the death of a loved one

"Thanks for helping me to get my life back."

Introduction

Bereavement can be a lonely and isolating experience. People may not understand; they may not want to talk about it, or know exactly how you feel, however close they are.

The Bereavement Counselling Services provides free and confidential help to anyone who has been bereaved.

It may be a recent death, or you might still have painful feelings months or years later.

You may feel angry, resentful, upset or unable to think of life without your loved one.

You may feel as if you are just about holding things together, or not coping at all.

You may feel you should "be over it by now."

You may feel you should always have positive thoughts about the person who has died.

Whatever your feelings, if you want to talk to someone in confidence, we are here to help.
