Although our staff can offer you emotional support and practical advice following bereavement it is important to mention that they are not trained counsellors. They can offer support through their own life experiences and can impart knowledge and practicalities of how they have dealt with their own losses that hopefully can give help and comfort to you.
We would always advise you to speak to your G.P. if the adjustment to losing your loved one is too painful and you feel you need some help. They may refer you to a counselling service to help with the psychological and emotional trauma of bereavement.
