Free local bereavement counselling

Story posted on

A Regular ‘coffee, care and cake group’ are continuing to offer free support to all individuals who have lost a loved one in Frome.

The monthly groups are organised by Southern Co-op’s Bereavement Centre and offer individuals the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation, in an informal and friendly setting.

Ingrid McAllister-Derry, bereavement centre manager and counsellor said, “We created the support group to be inclusive and available to everyone – regardless of whether you are a customer of Southern Co-op. 

“Bereavement can be a very lonely journey, even if you have people all around you. The group is deliberately informal. It brings people together who are in a similar situation and who understand what you may also be going through. 

“It is intended to be relaxed and comfortable, but with the opportunity to talk to a counsellor over coffee and cake or arrange a separate counselling appointment if this would help.”

The coffee, care and cake groups are open to everyone in the community and are free to attend. 

The Frome Coffee, Care and Cake group takes place on the second Monday of each month from 10am-12pm at Frome Medical Practice, in Enos Way.
