Understanding Grief

Kilkenny Bereavement Support is a voluntary organisation whose volunteers have undergone a course in bereavement support.

They come from all walks of life. Some of the volunteers are trained counsellors or are taking a course in counselling.

 

how we work

Having contacted Kilkenny Bereavement Support, (056-7756538) the Director of Services arranges for a bereavement worker to meet with the bereaved person.

Villa Maria, Talbots Inch, Freshford Road, Kilkenny is the location for such meetings.

 

The volunteer offers what is essentially a listening service. Kilkenny Bereavement Support believes that bereaved people more than anything else want to tell their story, to be really listened to, to know that this is done in confidence, to be allowed to express their emotions, and to spend as long as they wish in this process.

 

why contact kilkenny bereavement support?

 

Following a death, some people can feel overwhelmed by their feelings and may find it difficult to express those in their own environment.

Following a death, some people can feel overwhelmed by their feelings and may find it difficult to express those in their own environment.

For some people, a wave of grief may not be experienced several years following the death. This can be a frightening experience for some if they find that the supports they relied on once are no longer there.

 

It helps the healing process to talk with a trained listener and work through the strong feelings associated with grief.
