St Helena Bereavement Support Service

Bereavement services for adults and children in north east Essex

St Helena bereavement support services help adults in north and mid Essex who have been bereaved, regardless of how or where their loved one died.

We also offer bereavement support to children and young people up to the age of 17 in north east Essex for those whose loved one has died – no prior connection to the hospice is required. Support can either be individual or as a family group.

As grief is a very personal experience, we offer a range of support tailored to an individual's needs.

For adults
We offer informal groups designed to provide support, information and coping strategies for people who are adjusting to living with grief. We also offer therapeutic counsellor-led groups for support after bereavement by suicide,
stillbirth and neo-natal death, or death of a child. Our groups are welcoming and run by experienced staff and volunteers. Our bereavement support may also include one to one counselling and support, based on an assessment of your needs. We have an experienced team of specialist bereavement volunteers and counsellors who provide this support.

For children
Support can either be individual or as a family group, depending on the age of the child/young person. However, children under five will be supported via their parent/guardian or within their family unit and not individually. We also offer creative and play therapies along with talking therapies.
