...growing through grief

NOTICE:  Please be advised that Canberra Grief Centre will close between 21 December 2018 – 14 January 2019.

Loss is part of life whether that be loss of home, relationship, opportunity, health, person, pet and other such losses.

But when it confronts us, we are not always prepared for the impact.

Grief is the term to describe our experience of a loss.  It tells us that things have changed.   Our normal coping strategies may seem inadequate or inappropriate to cope with the change and adjustment required, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, confused, out of control and alone.

Canberra Grief Centre specialises in the provision of services to support grief, bereavement and trauma associated with a loss.

  • We can support you individually, with your partner and/or family
  • We provide care and support to grieving children and their carers
  • We can advise and support your school or workplace following an incident involving loss
  • We provide training and education tailored to the specific to the needs of your group
  • We assist and advise in the development of organisational policy and procedures to support a death in a school or workplace

We can support you after your loss, during the process of losing such as that experienced by carers, where diagnosis has been received or at end of life.

Grief does not need to be debilitating nor a journey you need to travel alone!  It can often be helpful to have a safe supportive space in which to make sense of your experience, understand the impact of the loss and enable you to find your way in life again.
