COVID-19 Bereavement Support Group

The COVID-19 Bereavement Support Group has been established to support adults who are grieving the loss of a significant person in their life due to COVID-19 or those whose grief experience has been significantly impacted by the pandemic.

“The strength of support groups are in the connection and understanding that come from shared narratives”

The COVID-19 experience has been challenging for many, and particularly those who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives.

Bereavement Support Groups are a safe and inclusive therapeutic space for participants to discuss themes and topics related to grief and
loss, with a specific COVID-19 focus, and provide each other with emotional, practical and moral support.

The COVID-19 Bereavement groups will be facilitated by Specialist Bereavement Counsellors with experience in grief and loss clinical practice.

The COVID-19 Bereavement Support Groups are closed groups with a maximum of eight members.

Participants are strongly encouraged to attend eight sessions over a 16 week period.

The groups are free and anyone who has been impacted by the death of someone significant to COVID-19 is eligible to attend.

All participants will need to undergo an intake assessment, to determine their readiness for group therapy.

The following groups are open for intake:

  • Mondays (ONLINE)
    21st June – 13th September at 5.00-6.30pm
  • Thursdays (ONLINE)
    24th June – 23rd September at 10.30am-12pm
