Dying Matters Awareness Week 2019 | 13 – 17 May

Remembrance and Thanksgiving Service | Sunday 19 May

The theme for this years Dying Matters Awareness Week is ‘Are We Ready?’ and places emphasis on the importance of the nation opening up and talking about dying, death and bereavement.
To mark the event Lynne McAllister, one of our Bereavement Counsellors will be providing a reading at the St Albans Cathedral Remembrance and Thanksgiving service on Sunday 19th May.
It has been a year since The Counselling Foundation took over the Bereavement Support Service from the St Albans Bereavement Network (SABN) since its closure.  We are proud of the support we continue to offer in our community to those who have experienced bereavement, regardless of when the loss occurred.
Losing a loved one is tough, we’re here to listen

Bereavement counselling matters – because it’s about you. Counselling can help you find a way through, be it in the immediate aftermath of a death, or many years later, your counsellor is there for you.

We are able to provide specialist bereavement support for anyone over the age of 18. Counselling provides a safe and completely confidential space for you to talk about your feelings of loss and grief and to be honest, sad, angry, scared or to just not know.

Contact us:

If you would like to confidentially talk to one of our friendly administrators to book in an appointment, then please contact us 01727 868585.

This service is open to all and allows those who have experienced a bereavement to remember, give thanks and to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died.

Accompanied by the St Albans Abbey Girls’ Choir, the service will commence at 3.00pm followed by the release of doves at 4.15pm.

Everyone of all faiths and none are warmly invited to this non-ticketed event.
