SUPPORTING YOU & HOW WE CAN HELP
Individual and Family/ Whanau Counselling
Our counsellors offer sessions to help you talk about your loss and grief in a caring way and help you make sense of the change that is taking place in your life.
Specialised Child Counselling
We work with children from age 6 or parents of children younger than 6 to support them to optimise the child’s development and wellbeing as they adjust to loss.
Support and Understanding
Sometimes people can feel they can’t speak up because of the expectations our culture has about grieving. To be told things such as “it’s time you moved on” or “you’ll find a new partner” can make it difficult to continue expressing your grief.
We will listen to you without expectations and accompany you as you make your way through this time.
You may associate grief with the death of a loved one but any loss can cause grief.
Grief Support Services Also Offers:
