We are all deeply affected when someone we love dies. Grief is a normal response to loss but you may find talking to someone independent can help support you through your experience.
Our Bereavement Services
At KEMP we provide support to anyone living in the Wyre Forest who is facing or has experienced a bereavement or loss in the last 5 years. It's not just for people who have lost a loved one to a life-limiting illness, or people who have had a family member use KEMP's Day Hospice...we offer bereavement support for all circumstances
Our services are available to children from the age of 5, young people and adults through one to one counselling and group support. We can see you at the hospice, in school and in some cases we'll come to your home.
All our bereavement services are provided free of charge.
Who Can Refer?
Anyone can make a referral to our bereavement service.
What Happens When I'm Referred?
One of our team will contact you to arrange to carry out an assessment appointment. The assessment usually takes around 90 minutes and is carried out by one of our Counsellors. If, following assessment, it is agreed that one to one work may be beneficial then you can be offered up to a maximum of 10 sessions with one of our Family Support team.
Our Family Support Team, made up of both staff and volunteers, adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework.
