Can Help

Liverpool Bereavement Service

This could be the  first time you have seen a counsellor and you may be anxious about talking to someone for the first time. You may be a parent of a child or young adult and have questions about what the counselling will entail. You may be feeling a little lost at the moment and are looking for some ways you can help yourself.  At Liverpool Bereavement Service we understand this and we are here to help you through what is a very difficult time.


All counsellors and volunteers follow the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework. Respecting your privacy and confidentiality are basic requirements within our code of practice.

All counsellors receive regular supervision so we can ensure good practice and high standards in counselling. Counselling is an opportunity to talk about your worries, concerns and anxieties in a confidential setting with someone who is trained to listen to you and explore your situation. It is up to you what you will talk about. Find out more about our Confidentiality & Disclosure framework  here

Children & Young People

Every child works through loss in their own unique way. Sadly, there is no magic wand that can make the process shorter or necessarily easier. We have information available that we hope will be able to give you an understanding of supporting children during this difficult time. You can read more about this  here

"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".
