About Liverpool Bereavement Service

Liverpool bereavement counselling for adults and children

About us

Liverpool bereavement support: Liverpool Bereavement Service has been supporting people experiencing bereavement and loss since 1998. We are a dedicated bereavement service for children and adults across the Merseyside City Region.

We are an inclusive service working with people of all ages, children and their families.

Everyone experiences loss and bereavement at some stage in their lives. This can be a harrowing and life affecting time. Often people feel that there is no one to turn to and find it hard, sometimes impossible to cope with grief. Counselling can help you on your recovery and towards coming to terms with your loss.


Your counsellor will provide the appropriate therapy, at you own pace to help you find your own way towards acceptance and feeling able to cope.

Please contact us if you would like help and support in coping with the challenges you face following a bereavement.

The Team

Our counselling services are provided by a core team of committed volunteers made up of skilled, experienced and qualified counsellors together with soon to be qualified counsellors.

Our counsellors come from a wide range of backgrounds to deliver a person-centred approach which is sensitive, non-judgmental and empathetic support specific to your bereavement. All our counsellors are guided by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (standards for practice, ethics and conduct).

A board of Trustees oversee the running of the service and support the manager, coordinators and volunteers. They are responsible for the on-going development and direction of the organisation.

Covid-19 Announcement 

Following the Government announcement on 23 March 2020, the Liverpool Bereavement Service will be suspending its face to face client appointments. This applies to both our adult and Oakleaf children services. We’ve been in touch with our existing clients who can contact us if they need telephone support while the office remains closed. We also remain available by phone and e-mail for anyone who feels they will benefit from bereavement counselling when we do resume normal services.

While we are closed, we will no longer be receiving client donations. This means that one valuable source of our funding is no longer available. Yet we will still have costs to cover while the service is closed. Now more than ever we welcome donations. We remain committed to providing professional, affordable and free counselling services for those struggling with grief. We thank all of our dedicated counsellors who are continuing to support clients during this difficult time and all our counsellors who will be ready to offer quality counselling service when we re-open. 

Stay safe.
