Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service

What Happens In Counselling?

Talking may bring relief and help you to better understand your feelings and reactions.  Counselling can help to adjust to a new life situation and identify additional support, if required.

The Counselling Process 

Many people need support following a bereavement and sometimes it can be helpful to talk to someone who is not emotionally involved and is professionally trained to listen.  Bereavement counsellors have specific knowledge of the grieving process.

  • After an initial assessment, you will be allocated a counsellor.
  • How long does counselling last? You will meet with your counsellor for 50 minutes, once a week. The number of sessions will depend on your individual situation.
  • Where will you see your counsellor? Counselling can take place either in your own home or at a venue elsewhere, or by telephone and online.
  • How much will it cost? You will be asked to make a contribution towards your counselling. No one is turned away for financial reasons.
  • Is it confidential? Counselling is a private and confidential form of help and we offer the maximum confidentiality within the framework of BACP guidelines.
