Bereavement Counselling Service - Serving Our Community For 44 Years.

Founded as Camden Bereavement Service in 1969, today Camden, City, Islington and Westminster Bereavement Service is a registered charity, that relies on public support, and which exists to provide free bereavement counselling help for any adult either living within or registered with a GP, in the boroughs of; Camden, Islington and the City of Westminster, or who live, work or are registered with a GP, within the City of London.

Counselling which can be either during the day or the evening, is provided by trained and supervised volunteer counsellors on a regular weekly basis. The number of sessions needed may vary depending upon need; from between one or two, or may be a fixed contract for ten weeks, or may be more open-ended for up to a year or more.

People who use the Service may have lost a baby in pregnancy, or have had to endure the death of a partner, child, lover, parent, relation, friend or colleague in many different circumstances. The deaths may have been caused by illness, accident, suicide, murder, war or natural causes. Very often people may experience a loss or life event that brings up old memories or feelings from earlier bereavements.

The Service is confidential and open to anyone over the age of 18 within the catchment area specified, of any sexuality, ethnic origin, culture or religion. In particular it is committed to providing a service to people who are not used to help from counselling.
