Grieving is a natural response to loss but bereavement can be a confusing and lonely experience.
Our bereavement support program is designed to offer a place for people to turn to when they are grieving.
Our service provides ongoing support in a safe and caring space through our Bereavement Support Coordinator and trained bereavement support volunteers.
An alternative for grief and bereavement support pertaining to Australian Indigenous community members may be obtained through the HealthInfoNet
How we can help
Our Bereavement Support Coordinator oversees all bereavement support opportunities and will meet with you to discuss your situation and how we can assist.
At the Geographe Bay Centre, we provide a neutral and confidential place for support sessions, where our volunteers listen with deep understanding and will respond in a supportive and non – judgmental way. Our volunteers are able to listen to strong emotions, validate that grief is a normal response to loss and support you in understanding the grief process.
I wasn’t prepared for the utter emotional, physical and mental roller coaster that came with my grief – the anger, the guilt, the fear, confusion, physical exhaustion and devastation. This centre has been my ‘safe place’. It has been invaluable to me to express myself to others who showed no judgement and who understood.
