Sometimes mourners feel such overwhelming pain and loss that they come to believe they are losing their grip on reality. One small step is to talk about your loss, to share the burden of your pain. It really can help.
If you are struggling after the death of someone close, we can help you. We offer a series of one-to-one bereavement support sessions with one of our trained bereavement volunteers. All sessions are in person. Bereavement support is offered in Welsh or English, whichever language you are more comfortable with.
Preparing for a loss
Living with a terminal diagnosis or supporting someone with one, can also feel like a loss. You may experience feelings of anger, guilt, uncertainty. These feelings can be difficult to share and make coping even harder. Sometimes, it can be good to talk about our feelings, especially to someone outside the family. The service we offer is confidential, non-judgemental and provides a safe space to talk freely and openly.
Our Compassionate Café is an accessible and safe space for anyone living with a life-limiting illness, their carers, people experiencing grief or if you have questions about death and dying.It’s a space to learn about being a Compassionate Neighbour and how being compassionate can support us in challenging times. The café is part of a series of informal, drop-in workshops, all our welcome, just a community spirit to share and understand. The cafe usually runs on a weekday and lasts about an hour and half with refreshments. Each cafe has a different discussion theme. We are a small community of people who believe being kind and compassionate can make a difference and help others. For more information, please call Susie on 01970 611550.
