Our therapists at Swift offer psychological support to families or individuals suffering as a result of the loss of a loved one.
We specialize in ‘complex bereavement’ cases in which people have not been able to recover, in some instances, even many years after the death of a loved one. We also work with children who have lost parents or siblings.
Bereavement and grief requires great sensitivity on the part of the therapist and the client needs to feel comfortable with the therapist.
So, in the first instance we try to match client needs and preferences with the most suitable therapist/counselor available.
One of our core values is to respect difference, including the right of people to hold different views. We take pride in being trained to work effectively with people from a wide variety of social, ethnic, gender and other backgrounds, which is an important factor in this type of work.
Bereavement and Grief counselling is available to adults & children.
We aim to see clients within one week of them contacting us.
