Expert loss and bereavement counselling

Coping with grief and loss is a tough part of life. Everyone will experience loss at some point in their life. This will inevitably have an enormous impact on their social and professional life.

Grief can come in all forms, not just from immediate relationships. It can occur to close friends and pet owners.

Whether it is the death of a loved one or even the loss of a relationship, your employees will need support.

Stages of bereavement counselling

We offer a comprehensive in-person, telephone and online bereavement counselling service. We can help an employee with complicated grief and bereavement. Here are the levels of support you can expect for your employees.

Phone assessment

The first time an employee calls up, one of our qualified counsellors will assess them over the phone. An employee may not know they need bereavement counselling specifically. Our counsellors will target what they need and match them with their ideal counsellor.

Introduction with your counsellor

There will be an appointment with the designated counsellor. Together they will develop rapport and a plan. They will discuss what kind of support they need, whether it be pet bereavement support or family-based. The therapist will look at the different stages of grief and analyse which stage they are in.

Formal solution-based counselling sessions

Here at Health Assured, our goal is to get employees healthy and back to work as soon as possible. We use short-term, solution-based counselling. Each counselling service is regular, intensive and effective. This includes our bereavement counselling online services, telephone services and in-person sessions.

Assessment of sessions

As the sessions are solution-based, the counsellor and employee will discuss the progress they have made together. They will then recap any tools they’ve gained to help cope with their issues. This allows the employee to see clear progress and help them cope better with the loss in the future.
