Bereavement Counselling

Bereavement Counselling

Losing a loved one is always difficult. The immediate aftermath is often a busy one and time is filed with arrangements and the company of those in support. It is often during this time that the bereaved forgets he/she is mourning and appears fine to outsiders, so much so that the support network falls away soon thereafter.

It can then be during this later time that the difficulties set in.

The bereaved may experience a range of different emotions and feelings which may be difficult if not impossible to deal with.

Losing a loved one can leave you feeling lonely, depressed, nervous, worried, angry, guilty and so much more.

At First Step we offer a confidential service to anyone suffering the effects of bereavement.

There is nothing to be ashamed of, our trained counsellors know exactly how you are feeling and are skilled in helping you come to terms with your loss and the feelings you are experiencing.

Whether you need help adjusting to life on your own, accepting the loss or dealing with the grief we can help.

It may be that you need help with funeral arrangements, care arrangements, financial assistance or applications for benefits we can assist.

If you just need someone to talk to as a one off then we can help.

It may be that you know someone, a young person perhaps who is struggling to come to terms with a recent loss in which case you may consider it appropriate to make a referral to our service.
