The Bereavement Counselling Charity
We aim to provide free bereavement counselling to all ages living within the Petersfield, Horndean, Waterlooville, Cosham, Havant, Emsworth and Hayling Island areas. Counselling gives time and space for someone to express their feelings in a safe and accepting environment. Exploring a person's reactions to bereavement often helps to bring a clearer understanding and enable them to live with their loss. We offer individual counselling to adults in their own homes. Our service is free, confidential, and provided by trained counsellors.
