Bereavement & grief counselling for couples

Grief is a normal and natural response to loss and it can have a profound effect on our relationships. Shared losses can bring us closer to a partner so that the experience is faced together, or sometimes a relationship may become strained and disconnected. We all grieve in different ways and these differences can be the cause of conflict, pain and misunderstanding for couples at an already difficult time. Whilst it is common to self-protect when we are stressed and hurting, it could be more helpful to open up and allow others in to help.

Couples bereavement counselling offers a safe and neutral space to work through the pain of grief and loss, helping to strengthen couple bonds, increase understanding and find ways of mutual support and communication. It can also help you find a shared sense of hope going forwards. This type of specialised couples counselling supports different kinds of losses including:

The loss of a child, sibling or parent

Perinatal losses

Bereavement by suicide

Delayed onset of grief

Counselling can also be a helpful way of exploring anticipatory loss, when someone close to you or you look after, is living with a chronic or life-limiting illness.

As an experienced bereavement counsellor and qualified couples therapist, I have a particular interest in working with couples in grief who would like to work together, rather than individually. I offer in-person bereavement counselling for couples in a relaxed and comfortable environment, working with a warm, supportive and non-judgemental approach to whatever you need to talk about.

Couples bereavement counselling fees - £70 per 60 minute session.

As a first step I provide a free initial assessment in-person or online for around 30 minutes, so we can talk about what is going on for you, your expectations of couples bereavement counselling and how I might be able to help. I will email some forms to be completed by you both, before this session takes place.

Get in touch

You are very welcome to contact me if you have any questions about how counselling works, or would like to arrange an initial assessment appointment. This enables us to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling, if it could be useful for you and if I am the right therapist to help.


You can also get in touch on 07305 994 014 if you would prefer to speak to me, or send me a message. I am happy to discuss any queries or questions you may have. I aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours Monday to Friday where possible. Click here to view my Privacy Policy.
