Our counsellor Scott has made an in-depth study of bereaved fathers and their experiences, and is passionate about encouraging them to reach out for support when the time is right. 

Here he talks with Martyn, whose son Shaun died after an illness. They speak openly and movingly about the experiences of bereaved dads - from the search for meaning after the death of a loved one, to the significance of remembrance and rituals; and from being isolated in grief to the importance of being able to talk, either to friends and family, or to professionals.

We hope that you find their discussion helpful and don't forget, if your child has died in any circumstances and you would like to talk please call our counselling team on 01691 672618 or email [email protected].

Our counselling service is British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Accredited and all our counsellors are registered or accredited members of the BACP.
