Bereavement and loss

The loss of someone close to you is very sad, upsetting and will naturally lead you to grieve, which is all part of the healing and coming to terms with your loss.   It is a sad and difficult time.  However, there is plenty available to help at a time like this.

You are welcome to come to Student Services to talk to one of our Advisers or Counsellors, perhaps just for some initial advice or if you feel you want to talk.  You can drop in to make an appointment either at The ASC (The Advice and Support Centre) at 79 North Street, or our offices at Eden Court on The Scores.   Alternatively, you can:-
