Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss.
If you have experienced the death of someone who has impacted your life, you might be finding it difficult to adjust to the immense changes you’re going through.
There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period. Counselling can provide support during these very difficult times. Talking about your loss often allows you to adjust to your new life with all its changes.
Our Bereavement Counselling service is run through Hillingdon Mind. To make a referral, please contact Hillingdon Mind on 01895 271559 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
