About us

The Bereavement Counselling Charity provides trained counsellors who offer listening, empathy and unconditional emotional support to enable people to come to terms with the emotional and practical changes bereavement brings, helping to normalise these intense feelings and to promote well-being.

We believe that by respecting and connecting with the grief of an individual, we can support a person's journey of change following their loss.

We provide an affordable counselling service to the following areas:

Denmead, East Hampshire, Emsworth, Havant, Hayling Island, North Portsmouth and Waterlooville. 

HOW WE CAN HELP

We we lose someone close to us, the pain can be unbearable.  Getting through each day may feel impossible.  Death is a common experience and inevitable for us all, yet it remains one of the most difficult topics to talk about. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Our service is confidential and provided by trained counsellors. The charity is governed by the Board of Trustees drawn from people in the local community with experience in caring and clinical professions.

Member organisations *

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
