Sibuns Bereavement Support


Sibuns Bereavement Support

Grief is our natural response to loss in our lives. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and different people have different ways of grieving.

When someone dies, family and friends can find it hard to cope with the tremendous grief they experience and can be unprepared for important decisions and arrangements that need to be made.

After the funeral can be a particularly difficult time, and grief can leave you feeling disorientated, numb, angry, exceptionally tired and sad or lacking in confidence and hope. It is important to not brush these feelings aside – they are an expression of how much the deceased person meant to you and a normal part of the grieving process.

In recognition of this Sibuns Funeral Directors & Advisors provide a free after-care support service – someone to talk to and someone who can provide support and reassurance. Claire Steel has had many years working as a qualified counsellor and bereavement support person and can provide a sympathetic ear, whether it is just ‘being there’ or putting you in touch with other support networks. Claire has helped many families following bereavement : “I help people as they go through the grieving process and experience feelings of loss and bewilderment.

Every person grieves differently and my role is to find out what they need and assist them through the process.” We also offer a free book “Now What? A guide for people living with the death of someone close” by highly regarded Grief Counsellor Lois Tonkin. A colourful poster, Remembering to Live is also available for children and teenagers.
