We are not able to offer pre-bereavement counselling, however we understand knowing someone will soon pass away is an intensely upsetting time although it can provide an opportunity to properly say goodbye. For many, dealing with the uncertainty around the expected date of death and the gradual deterioration of a loved one means that the period of loss begins before the actual death thereby extending the period of grief beyond that experienced with an unexpected death. This section of the website provides links to resources for adults and children facing the loss of a family member or friend, with further support available by contacting your local bereavement support service.
