Our bereavement counselling is available to anyone living, working or studying in Kingston or registered with a Kingston GP and is provided by a team of around 40 trained volunteer counsellors supported by experienced supervisors.
Counselling can be arranged during the day or in the evening according to your availability. For counselling sessions, we use our dedicated counselling rooms in our premises in Canbury Park Road, close to Kingston town centre and Kingston train and bus stations.
Anyone living, working or studying in Kingston upon Thames is welcome to contact us to discuss bereavement counselling. If your GP is a Kingston GP and they send us a written referral.
