Grief following the death of someone close is one of the most painful and stressful life events. It is experienced in many ways–emotionally, physically, spiritually–and everyone grieves differently. Shock, anger, sadness, guilt, numbness and anxiety are common feelings during the grieving process, and they can be overwhelming.

Loneliness and isolation are also common feelings after loss, and the support of family and friends can be invaluable. However, it isn’t always possible to grieve freely and openly among them; after all, they are grieving too. Counselling sessions can help to validate your feelings and provide a safe, non-judgmental space to fully express emotions.

Counselling doesn’t aim to hurry the process along; it supports people as they grieve, in their own way and in their own time.

2wish provide funded sessions of 1:1 counselling with a local, qualified, BACP registered counsellor who is experienced in bereavement. We also work with counsellors who are trained in trauma to support those affected by PTSD. You can access this service as an individual, a couple, or as a young person. We can also offer counselling sessions via instant messaging or over the phone if preferred. We are very much person-led and let you guide the way as to if, and when, you are ready for support.

All our counsellors are self-employed and we work alongside counsellors from all over Wales. Every counsellor is registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and we follow their guidelines strictly.
