At City Hospice we are here to offer bereavement counselling and support for anyone in Cardiff experiencing loss and grief

As Cardiff’s local hospice we provide a bereavement service for the people living in our City who are experiencing grief and loss. Bereavement counselling and support is available as a free service open to the family members of the patients who were once cared for by the City Hospice team and now is open to anyone in Cardiff that has suffered a bereavement and feels that they would benefit from counselling.  The City Hospice team will make contact with families known to us following the death of a loved one to talk about what support you may need, however, you are also welcome to contact the team directly. The bereavement service at City Hospice offers different levels of support depending on the need identified. This can include face to face counselling with a qualified counsellor, art psychotherapy and music therapy. Our services can be done through digital and telephone counselling for those that this is best suited.

If your loved one was not cared for at City Hospice and you would like to talk to us to see if we can help you please do contact us.

Children’s and Young Persons Counselling Services

We have counsellors and therapists who offer support to families on how to help prepare children for the death of a loved one and can offer pre-bereavement counselling to the child. We work with children and young people to provide one to one bereavement support and this is available to any child in Cardiff, regardless if the family have been looked after by City Hospice.

We have a specialist children’s service that has trained professionals, counsellors and art psychotherapists who can work with children prior to bereavement. We see children in schools when this is appropriate or easier for the families.  We are aware that we do not want children to miss out on their education, so we will travel to them.

Our children’s groups will be back, and we plan to meet regular monthly sessions every Tuesday, 4:30-6pm
