Adult service

The key aim of our Adult Service is to deliver a high quality bereavement counselling service for the community of Kingston upon Thames with equal access to all that need it. We welcome and respect people from all backgrounds.

Counselling can be arranged during the day and evening according to your availability. For counselling sessions, we usually use our premises in Canbury Park Road, close to Kingston town centre and Kingston train and bus stations, but we can also arrange sessions in your own home or at other locations.

The services we offer to those who are living, working or studying in Kingston or registered with a Kingston GP include

  • advice and information
  • pre-counselling assessment
  • one to one counselling
  • aftercare support group

What we offer is shaped by the needs of the individual and we endeavour to match those accessing our service with a counsellor with the appropriate expertise, such as pre-natal death or suicide.

We accept referrals from Kingston GPs or other health professionals, or self referrals. 

As we’re sure you are aware, times were very hard for charities before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. 

At Kingston Bereavement Service we have successfully carried on offering our service during the current crisis, by offering telephone and video counselling 

Unfortunately with the difficulties faced by all those in the voluntary sector, we are finding it increasingly difficult to secure funding and we have had to take the difficult decision to begin charging for our services in the New Year 2021; we will confirm the date nearer the time. 

Charging will be on a sliding scale as detailed below but it is important to note that we will never turn anyone away for purely financial reasons. 

Income below £9999 - £5 per session 

Income   £10k - £15k - £15 per session 

               £15k - £24k - £25 per session 

               £25k - £34k - £40 per session 

               £35k - £44k - £50 per session 

               £45k - £54k - £60 per session 

               £55k - £64k - £65 per session 

               £65k and above - £70 per session  

All assessments will be charged at a rate of £25.

Please note this only applies to the adult service.

We also offer a service for children and young people.
