Thanks to funding from the South Yorkshire Community Fund, Rotherham and Barnsley Mind is able to offer bereavement counselling free of charge over the next few months. Sessions will take place over the phone or digitally.
It is usual to struggle with a range of emotional and practical difficulties leading up to and following the death of someone close to you and during this very difficult time of isolation, emotions will naturally be heightened.
We understand that everyone’s experience of loss will be different and a range of support options available
We aim to offer flexible, personalised and cost effective support for people experiencing these difficulties.
Counselling can give you the opportunity to explore issues such as emotional pain, anger, guilt, and depression with a trained therapist. It can also help you with acceptance and strategies to coping with life and loss, during the time leading up to and after the death of someone close.
Group therapy is a structured and shared therapeutic experience that involves the presence of a trained professional and other group members who are working through their grief.
Group therapy is confidential, and collaborative which focuses on particular concerns shared by group members. The therapist may encourage participants to share their experiences and work on achieving a greater sense of self-awareness and improved understanding to help recovery.
Having therapy in a group setting may have additional benefits, as it offers a support network and provides opportunity to meet others experiencing similar difficulties. On completion of our bereavement course you will be offered the opportunity to join our peer bereavement groups which can provide a continued support network with others that have similar experiences.
If you are being affected by issues or concerns that are stopping you from enjoying life or reaching your full potential, then our counselling services could help. Find out more
