How we can help

Death and Bereavement may bring many changes which are often difficult and painful. It can be helpful to talk with a counsellor who is specifically trained to support you and help you begin to talk about what has happened. Our counsellors work with individuals and couples who have experienced a bereavement at any time in their lives. We provide counselling in a variety of languages including Bengali, Hindi, Urdu, English, Italian, Spanish, French, and German.

Counselling Service

Each session lasts for fifty minutes and is an opportunity for our clients to explore their issues in depth, so that they can begin to heal and recover from their loss or bereavement. We will provide you with an initial assessment which is an opportunity to meet with you, and begin to form an idea of your issues and how we can help.

How to Make a Referral

You can refer yourself to the service by telephoning us on 020 3022 5177. We will take some basic information from you and offer you a counselling assessment appointment with the counselling manager. At this appointment the manager will assess your needs and arrange for counselling sessions to start as soon as possible.
