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
Dove House and the Grief Centre are running an eight week group experience where you join with others to explore your thoughts, feelings, assumptions and challenges as you look to life after the death of a loved one. This is a support group for those who have experienced a bereavement sometime in the last few years, an opportunity to meet with others who may have been through similar experiences. Registrations are essential Please click here for details.
