Support with Bereavement
Bereavement affects people in different ways and there is no right or wrong way to feel. You may feel shocked or numb on learning of a bereavement. You may feel angry or feel some guilt or you may simply cry and feel very sad. All of these responses are a natural reaction to losing someone you care for.
In time these feelings may begin to change as you adapt to a different way of life. When someone dies, your bond with that person does not stop, but will develop into a different but equally significant relationship.
Everyone is different and some people wish to grieve privately whereas others may find it very helpful to get support from friends, family or professionals who have relevant skills and experience. Below are some contact details which you may find useful in supporting you or other friends or family members in the event of a death.
We believe that being empowered to create a funeral that reflects the person that has died, can help you to create memories to begin to support a positive grieving process. At Full Circle funerals we are dedicated to supporting you to expand on your ideas to achieve the funeral that is best for you and your loved ones.
If you feel that you may benefit from some additional support, your GP may be able to refer you to local support groups or counseling services and if you are employed, your company may offer an “Employee Assistance Program” which may be able to offer you support.
At Full Circle Funerals we also host a monthly informal bereavement group so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out more about this or to discuss other support options with us.
We also offer SAIF Care, which provides a range of services to bereaved people over the age of 18, including telephone support, e-mail support and up to six free sessions of counselling.
