Coping with Bereavement

We all cope with bereavement in different ways and there is no set pattern to our grief. Visiting a bereavement counsellor may be a way forward for you. Your Doctor, Health Worker or Social Worker will be able to refer you to a local support group. They would also have a list of private counsellors for you to self refer.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to talk to your Funeral Director, who will guide you to some of the services open to you. Here are some contacts that you may also find useful:
