12th March 2019 – Bereavement Seminar, in partnership with Cruse Bereavement Care

Building hope for the future
A seminar to discuss bereavement, understanding grief, self-care and coping with loss to build hope for a new future. The discussion will be lead by the experts at Cruse Bereavement Care in association with the Swiss Benevolent Society. Support to help accept the reality of loss can be valuable as everyone’s’ experiences and responses are individual to them. Keeping in mind that bereavement can impact people in different ways whereby one might possibly experience reactions or a difference in feelings, behaviours, thoughts, physical reactions, or relationships for a period of time.

Various support sessions will be discussed from one-to-one to group.
