Crisis Counselling and Bereavement Support Service

In response to the distressing experiences of our local community due to COVID-19, ACC*, Havering Mind and London Borough of Havering are working together to offer a Crisis Counselling and Bereavement Support Service. The service is specifically for anyone living in Havering who has suffered the bereavement of a relative, friend or work colleague; or anyone coping with the stresses related to working in a residential care home setting during COVID19.

To access the Crisis Counselling and Bereavement Service, please contact the team at Havering Mind

After a short assessment, and if it’s right for you, Havering Mind will refer you to the counselling service which is being provided by ACC. ACC hope to be able to allocate you with a counsellor ideally within 7 days.

The professional counsellors providing this service will help you cope with your thoughts, feelings, and issues that you are facing at this exceptionally difficult time. Up to ten sessions of counselling are available – online or by telephone – on a ‘no-fee’ basis. That is the counsellors have agreed to volunteer their time and expertise.

The Crisis Counselling and Bereavement Support Service is available to residents of Havering over 18 years of age that have been affected by a bereavement or the stresses relating to working in a residential care home setting during COVID19.

*ACC stands for the Association of Christian Counsellors who are a counselling and psychotherapy membership body that hold an accredited register with the Professional Standards Authority. Counsellors volunteering for the crisis counselling support service come from all faiths and none and will work with people of all faiths and none. All of the counsellors will work under their professional ethics and practice standards and are insured.
