Bereavement Counselling

Bereavement Counselling

Sometimes talking in confidence to someone outside the family/whānau and friends, who understands the process, may help lift the burden and ease the pain.

Bereavement care from Hospice Waikato includes individual support and counselling for adults and children, group work, telephone support and an annual memorial service. Our counselling service is free, confidential and available to all Hospice clients and their families/whānau.

We have a range of counselling services that are available for patients and family/whānau during your illness and family bereavement.

• You may choose to join a Healing Journey support group or take part in one of our workshops.
• We also offer telephone counselling to support families living in rural or remote areas of the Waikato.
• All workshops are facilitated by trained professionals who are members of NZAC, NZCCA or ANZASW.

Please note: not all services are available in all areas. Our services are offered based n an assessment of need and may include referral to and collaboration with other services.
