How do I get bereavement counselling?
We’ve listed different ways that you may be able to access bereavement counselling. What’s available can vary depending on where you live and what services are available in your area.
Some services might not offer counselling – they may offer general emotional support or different types of psychotherapy. Check with them if you’re not sure.
