Woman Deep In Thought

Bereavement service

The death of a family member or friend can be painful and distressing. You may need to speak to someone about how you feel and the changes you are facing. At St Joseph’s we have a team of highly trained and experienced counsellors who can help.

Patient and family counselling

Emotional distress and worries are not unusual among people affected by life limiting illness and are an understandable reaction to what can be a painful and challenging experience.

Children and Young Person's Bereavement Service

St Joseph’s Hospice provides bereavement support to children, young people and families who have lost a family member, care giver or other significant person in their life.
