Bereavement Counselling

Free Bereavement Counselling Service to patients, their families and friends.

Our aim is to provide counselling to the people in our geographically defined area who are experiencing a long term illness or the loss of someone close. You will be seen at our comfortable ‘home from home’ counselling cabin, our therapeutic space in the grounds of Jecca’s House. Here, we provide a safe, confidential place to talk. Your concerns will be heard in a non-judgemental, caring and respectful way.

Although there is no charge for our service, we rely on donations to help cover our costs. Please donate what you are able to afford at the end of our arrangement.

Many years experience

Our counsellors have many years experience between them.  We have a team of counsellors who receive on-going training and supervision according to BACP guidelines. They adhere to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Framework for Good Practice.

We receive referrals from District Nurses and GPs who will be able to give you further information and advice. We also welcome calls directly to our office to arrange counselling. If you think you or someone you know could benefit from our help please get in touch.

Informal Bereavement Support – Groups, activities and workshops

Our groups, activities and craft workshops are also open to anyone who has experienced bereavement within the last five years. These include our Bereavement Support Group, Jecca’s Bereavement Cafe, as well as the relaxation group, Men in Sheds and local walking group, for example. Please take a look here to see if anything takes your fancy and at our weekly timetable.

There is no charge for receiving therapies or counselling service at Campden Home Nursing.

Please note, we are not a crisis service, and if you feel you need immediate help, we would strongly recommend calling The Samaritans.

If I can give my sadness a voice, perhaps I can come to terms with my loss (a client receiving bereavement counselling)

I just wanted to thank you for all you are doing for me, for making it safe to say things outside the home, for allowing me to see I don’t have to continually pretend everything is wonderful, it’s not a weakness to not be okay, and showing me how I can find a way out of the darkness I have been surrounded by for so long.
