Support Groups

What is a Support Group?

Bereavement and Grief Support groups bring together people who are going through or have gone through similar experiences of a loss... they provide an opportunity for people to share feelings and coping strategies, and a safe place to become comfortable around others once more.

I have been a facilitator to both open and closed bereavement groups for more than 12 years. I am a Certified Bereavement Counselor and have trained peer facilitators in various programs.

Benefits of participating in a bereavement support group may include:

  • Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
  • Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue
  • Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
  • Improving skills to cope with challenges
  • Gaining a sense of empowerment, control or hope
  • Improving understanding of a loss and your own experience with it
  • Getting practical feedback about treatment options available.
  • Guidelines for confidentiality
