Adult Services

Liverpool Bereavement Services provide 1:1 counselling for people who are struggling to cope with a loss.

How we support you coping with grief.

Grief is a natural response following the loss of someone significant in your life. It may be a spouse, relative, friend or colleague or anyone else whose loss is difficult to bear.

Grief can be complex and overwhelming emotional experience and bring feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Sharing your feelings and thoughts with a sensitive, focused and supportive counsellor is likely to be a healing process.

Your counsellor will understand that grief is a highly personal experience and provide the time, space and therapeutic support specific to you needs.

Our counsellors.

Our counsellors are experienced, trained, vetted therapists who will work with you in a way which is non judgemental, accepting of you and your situation unconditionally and respectful.

Liverpool Bereavement Service will provide a safe environment in which to explore your feelings, fears and hopes the aim being to help you cope with your loss and your life in the future. Our counsellors are members of a professional body and work within a clear and comprehensive ethical code.

Counselling takes places in a comfortable, private room on a one to one basis. Each session lasts 1 hour. Initially your sessions will be for 6 consecutive weeks at which time your wishes regarding further sessions will be reviewed by our counselling manager. If it is thought that you would benefit from additional sessions these will be arranged and reviewed as necessary.

If you need support after someone has died, sessions take place each week for 50 minutes at our Liverpool counselling rooms.  Your counselling will be reviewed at week 6 to assess your ongoing needs. However, if it is reviewed with the Service Manager that more sessions are needed then they are continued and reviewed fortnightly.
