1:1 support sessions with trained volunteers.
A 5 week structured bereavement support group, led by a counsellor and volunteer. This is a supportive group encouraging you to talk about your feelings and share thoughts and experiences with others who are also bereaved.
Ecotherapy Group: An outdoor bereavement therapy group combining gardening, outdoor craft activities and introducing some relaxation techniques. It is aimed at gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Everyone who attends is bereaved, and the group aims to help people to work through grief, learn new skills and make new friends whilst enjoying the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors. Ecotherapy takes place during the summer months and is a 5 week rolling programme for up to 8 participants.
We also offer one to one outdoor bereavement counselling sessions. These can be scheduled to take place in quiet areas of the Hospice gardens, or they can take the form of individual walk and talk sessions outside of the Hospice grounds.
