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
