Family Workshops

One to One Counselling is offered to adults and young people. It gives them the time and space to explore their feelings and help them adjust to their new and difficult situation.

Creative arts therapy groups help children to express and make sense of their worries. They offer the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Therapeutic support groups for adults to explore their concerns in a supportive, facilitated environment and to meet others in a similar situation.

‘If you want to access help for your family please call 020 8371 8455 option 1. This is a helpline run by our partner organisation Grief Encounter where you can discuss your concerns and, if appropriate, refer your family to our services. You will be sent a form to fill in so we can begin to assess your needs and see how we can help.


Referrals from professional agencies can also be made via this number.


We offer support to children up to the age of 18 and to their parents/carers.  We accept referrals for cases of bereavement and life threatening illness within the immediate family ie parent/child/sibling. In exceptional cases we may accept referrals where a member of the extended family has died/is ill eg grandparent.


All services for children are provided free of charge; there is no charge for adult services however any voluntary donations would be gratefully received.
