Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service – help in bereavement

Many people need support following a bereavement, and family and friends can be of great help. Yet, it may be difficult to talk to those we know well about our emotions. Sometimes it may be helpful to talk to someone who is not emotionally involved but is there to listen and care. The Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service are volunteer counsellors, professionally trained and supervised, who work with people of all ages. A counsellor will offer support and help you explore difficulties, and find strengths within yourself.
