The Bereavement Journey

If you are visiting this page in response to a personal bereavement, we are truly sorry for your loss. Here at The Parish Trust, we hope and pray that you may find some help and comfort here during this difficult time. If you would like to join our next Bereavement Journey Course, the details are listed on this page.

Loss needs to be processed for our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Unresolved grief can also affect our attitudes, relationships and attainment. The Bereavement Journey® is a place to talk: 7 Sessions of films and discussion for anyone, whether grieving a death now, or wanting to explore a previous bereavement that may be unresolved. This course is for bereaved adults to do their own grief work. It is supported by a Guest Manual and facilitated by a trained professional.

Attendance is recommended for all the Sessions, although it is possible to join at Session 2. It is most beneficial to attend at least a few weeks after the death – ideally after the funeral, but this is not essential and The Bereavement Journey can benefit those in anticipatory grief, also pregnancy loss.

Topics include:

  • Attachment, separation and loss
  • The pain and responses of grief
  • Anger and guilt
  • Coping with others’ reactions
  • Delayed and suppressed grief
  • Adjusting to change
  • Moving forward healthily

Faith is reserved for the final, 7th session on Faith Questions in Bereavement, which is optional, making the course suitable for anyone of any faith or none.

Next Course Dates

Please note that in order to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and to enjoy the Easter Holidays, The Parish Trust will be closed from Thursday 28th March 2024 and will reopen on Monday 8th April 2024. We wish all our stakeholders and beneficiaries a Happy Easter.
