Counselling for people facing death, dying and bereavement in Bristol

Who are we?

We believe that everyone in Bristol should have a safe space to talk and be listened to when they face death, dying and bereavement. Often, people who most need access to our counselling services face financial challenges as a result of their situation.

That’s why we provide free access to individual, couples, and group counselling for adults affected by life-threatening illness.

Whether you are personally experiencing an illness, supporting someone who is, or coming to terms with a bereavement The Harbour is here to help. We believe it is important to help our clients in finding their own ways to come to terms with their experiences.

How can we help?

Our team of therapists at The Harbour believe that each of our clients’ experiences are unique, and for that reason we provide relationship-based, specialist support.

What is it like?

It has given me the support, space and opportunity to talk through my concerns at coping as a carer and helped me to get things into perspective and enter into a new phase.

My therapist has been a real support and help to me.
