At the Grief Centre, we provide support, advice & counselling to help those affected by loss and grief.
The death of a loved one shifts the whole foundation of our life. Nothing is as it was. Even what was most familiar, seems in a strange way unfamiliar. It is as though we have to learn a new language, a new way of being. Even the face in the mirror sometimes seems the face of a stranger.
The Grief Centre
The Grief Support and Education Charitable Trust (Grief Centre) is a Registered Charity established in 2009 to assist and support those affected by grief and loss.
Loss and grief are issues facing many in our communities. Until now little has been available to truly help those needing assistance.

At the Grief Centre we offer a variety of services, including Counselling, Support Groups, Information and Resources, Training, and books for sale to assist those that are grieving.
Upcoming Support Groups
Suicide Bereavement Support Group
This support group is for people who have had a family member or close friend die by suicide. It is an opportunity to connect with others who have experienced loss by suicide and to also benefit from the support and experience of two professional and experienced counsellors who will facilitate the group. There will be a structure which supports people to explore their loss in a safe environment as well as the opportunity to share their experiences with others. Each session will offer valuable information and discussion points as well as open conversation.
The group will be facilitated by qualified and experienced counsellors and will run for eight weeks on Wednesdays, 7 - 9 pm starting on 17 September in Central Auckland.

Bereavement Support Group - Henderson
A support group for those who have experienced a bereavement sometime in the last few years. This is an opportunity to meet with others who may have been through similar experiences. This group will run for eight weeks and is facilitated by qualified and experienced counsellors. Each week we look at different aspects of the grief and loss experience, giving you the opportunity to talk about your loss, and reflect on the changes this has brought to your life. With this may come new understanding of what has happened and ways to adjust to this loss.
The group in Henderson will be held on Tuesdays 7-9pm, starting 16 September. Please click here for the flyer and contact us for more information and registration.
