Bereavement Services

In Stockport

Beechwood Cancer Care

Beechwood understand that the loss of a loved one can be one of the most devastating events any of us has to cope with. It's a time when help and support are vital, as those experiencing bereavement often feel isolated, alone and that there is no-one else who fully understands what they are going through.

Beechwood provide bereavement support that includes one-to-one sessions and complementary therapy to allow time and opportunity for people to explore their feelings in a safe and supportive environment. They also offer access to a Bereavement Support Group to help reduce feelings of isolation.

If you'd like to talk to someone or require information contact enquiries@beechwoodcancercare.co.uk or on 0161 476 0384.
