Abuse / Bereavement Groups

Bereavement Groups

Bereavement Groups

These groups will run for 10 weeks, 2 hour sessions, starting at 6:30pm and finishing at 8:30pm, with a small refreshment break mid-way through (maximum 12 persons per group). The group will take a 2 week break half way through the sessions to allow participants a little breathing space and time for self reflection. 

These groups will be what we term as 'closed groups'. Once you have registered your interest and the group is established, no new faces will suddenly appear within the group, as the group will now be classed as closed. The group facilitators will also remain the same throughout the life of the group. 


The aims of these types of groups is that we can all share our experiences and thoughts around a whole range of issues. We are all in a constant state of learning in one way or another. 
Group participations is a proven way to learn about what other people are having to cope with in their everyday lives, and how they may or may not be able to deal with their issues. 

The choice is yours

The group will be provided with a comprehensive list of subjects that you can choose from. Alternatively, you can choose your very own subjects through group discussion and decide amongst yourselves what it is that's most important to the group. 

Cost: £10.00 per session (payable on the day via Cash/Cheque/Credit card)

These groups are extremely popular, so be sure to book as early as possible. If you are unsuccessful in getting into a particular group, we will (with your permission) place you on a waiting list and give you plenty of forward notice of the next group dates. 

Please note

50% of your fee will be placed into our concessionary fund to help disadvantaged people gain access to FREE one-to-one counselling sessions. 

These FREE sessions will be limited to 2 counselling areas:

On behalf of these disadvantaged people ASCA North East would like to sincerely thank you for attending our group work sessions and thus helping individuals to access abuse and bereavement counselling.
