Funeral director launches free bereavement group

Douch Family Funeral Directors is launching a free monthly bereavement group for those mourning a loved one.

The community events will take place on the first Thursday of each month, beginning on November 2, from 11am to 12.30pm.

Sessions will be led by Cindy Weller, a highly qualified counsellor, and will be held in a private room at the Ferndown Royal British Legion Club.

There will be tea and biscuits available as well as a sympathetic ear and advice.

Emma Regan from the funeral group, said: “We support several bereavement charities and wanted to help further.

“At funerals we often wish we could follow-up and help those we see, and this bereavement group will allow us to do that in a small way.

“Our Ferndown branch, AE Jolliffe & Son, will be supporting the meetings and we are inviting anyone in the community – no matter how long it is since they lost a loved one.

“Cindy, who is running the groups, is also able to provide one-to-one sessions.”

The second session takes place on December 14 and to book a place in the groups people are asked to call AE Jolliffe on 01202 872050.

Cindy, who lives in Ferndown, is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).
