At the Grief Centre, we provide support, advice & counselling to help those affected by loss and grief.
Losses or changes can shift 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.
Specialised Grief and Loss Resources Available
In conjunction with Dr Fiona Pienaar, we have produced a set of resource booklets for people experiencing loss and grief following a death.
