Bereavement and Loss

When Someone Has Died

When someone has lost a loved one, trying to cope with the pain and loss alone can be difficult. People can be left feeling sad, lonely, helpless, confused, even angry. We provide help and support for people who have been bereaved, with the opportunity to meet others who have been in similar situations.

What we offer

The group meets at Sunderland Counselling Services offices, 37 West Sunniside, Sunderland, SR1 1BU every Monday from 2.00 to 3.30 (except for Bank Holidays). The group is facilitated by experienced bereavement support workers. If you feel that this might be of help to you, please call us on 0191 514 7007 for more information.

You will find a supportive and caring group of people who will try to understand what you are going through and will help you to cope with your grief.

One of the group members has said, “When my wife died of cancer it left me devastated. I didn’t think I could go on. Sunderland Counselling Services helped me a great deal – I found it very valuable to meet with other people in the same situation as me, with the same sadness, the same loneliness and the same anger as me. SCS has given me back my smile. It has given me a reason to live again.”
