The sessions were invaluable

Thank you for helping me, the sessions were all invaluable, as it the service you offer. The safe environment and being able to talk to someone freely, without judgement, has been what I needed to help find myself. The Liverpool Bereavement Service is second to none and everyone that works there is so special and much appreciated. With much love and respect to you all and a big thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I now know better days will come

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sue for all the support you have given me over my time with you. You have been such a safe place for me come each week and I feel it has helped me massively being able to talk, laugh and cry for that hour with you. Thanks to you, I now know losing my amazing dad is never something I will get over, and nor would I want to. But better days will come.

Thank you for your understanding

Thank you very much Sue for all your support right from the beginning when I contacted you by telephone. You have been so understanding with regards to my health situation, which eased my anxiety until I was able to attend counselling.

Thank you for your kind words and compassion

To all the staff at Liverpool Bereavement Service, a big thank you for all of your kind words, compassion, and for taking the time to listen and for the care you give to people who use your valuable service. A special thank you to Lynn for your hard work listening to the silence, I think I will be forever a woman of few words. Best wishes to everyone.

I was lost in grief

Words cannot express my gratitude for you & everything you do for bereaved people. I was 'lost in grief', and then I found you! Your efforts to make time for your wonderful counsellors to see me helped me find my way again. I feel blessed to have met you. For people struggling with grief you are a beacon of light in the dark. Thank you for everything you have done and long may you continue the excellent work you do to change the lives of people like me.

"I found Carol to be kind, compassionate, empathetic, knowledgeable and helped me to make sense of the way I was feeling by giving me time to work through how I was feeling and why. She also provided much needed reassurance that everything I was feeling was quite normal and helped me to reflect on the happy memories I have".
