Bereavement Support Group - Losing someone you care about can be one of life’s most difficult experiences. There are no easy answers when dealing with bereavement, every situation is unique and people react in different ways. This course offers a combination of insight and interaction in a safe and friendly environment where feelings and emotions are respected; not counselling, but a chance, as a group, to explore the grief process and it’s many emotions worked through as the inevitable adjustments to life that loss brings are experienced.
