Bereavement Counselling Service


Grief is a normal and natural response to the death of someone significant in our lives. Every person grieves in their own way and there is no ‘right’ way to grieve.

Similarly, we all cope in different ways. Many people will simply turn to their existing relationships and coping strategies. For some people, it is helpful to seek specialised and non-judgemental support from a bereavement counsellor in a one-on-one protected space.

Our bereavement counselling service is open to all adults within the Illawarra and Shoalhaven regions. We can also discuss the needs of any child or young person who may benefit from specialist support.

Our counselling service is free and confidential. We provide trauma-informed care, and we are sensitive and welcoming to all diversity. 

We encourage enquiries from all potential clients and health professionals. A GP referral is not needed, as self-referral is required from the interested person.

We encourage you to get in touch with the Bereavement Coordinator/Counsellor if you would like to make an appointment or discuss the service further.
