The loss of a loved one is a devastating experience, we are faced with the unimaginable task of coping with all that bereavement brings and the challenge of finding a new sense of life and purpose. All of this takes time – nearly always longer than we think, so we have collated a number of sources and a Private Facebook Page to connect with others, share memories & photos, quotes, poems & remember those who held such a huge part of our hearts to provide a support network when you need it most.
If you think you might need professional grief counselling, please speak to your GP. They may be able to refer you for counselling to assist with the way you are feeling and give you further information about local counselling services and support groups available to you.
