It can be difficult to process your feelings around illness and death, and counselling can help you identify and express your emotions.
We can help support you and your family through your journey and provide a safe and confidential space to talk through your thoughts and feelings. We offer face to face sessions in Midhurst or at your home, or via the telephone or online. You will be seen by either a qualified therapist or counselling student who is on placement and nearing the end of their training.
All our therapists work to the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) code of ethical practice
Following a bereavement you may experience a range of emotions – shock, sorrow, anger, helplessness, denial, regret, guilt and anxiety. It can be hard to admit these feelings to others, or even yourself. Struggling with your feelings can take a toll on your mental and physical health and make it difficult to move on.
If you have lost someone close to you, then speaking with a trained volunteer can help you express your feelings without being judged or worried that you will upset someone.
Our Bereavement Volunteers offer six face to face sessions either in Midhurst, at your home or via telephone appointments.
Bereavement Support Groups
Facilitated by an experienced therapist, the Support Group provides an opportunity for you to meet once a month. It is a safe and secure environment to share your experiences and gain support from local people in a similar situation.
The Group meets in Midhurst on the first Tuesday of each month for a period of 6 months.
There are many support groups across the country and it is worth talking to your GP or Citizens Advice for local information on counselling groups and practical advice on managing day to day tasks.
Service to Remember
Every December a special service is held at St Mary's Church in Easebourne and is open to the family and friends of all our patients who have recieved care over the year.
There is also a Book of Love, where anyone who won't be with you this Christmas will be remembered and a light will be lit for them on the Tree of Hope.
