Be More Ben Coffee Morning

24th May | 28th June | 26th July | 30th August | 20th September | 25th October | 29th November 2019 from 10:30am – 12:30pm at The Imperio Lounge, Portishead

We run regular, informal coffee mornings for bereaved parents to meet with other people who completely understand what losing a child is like. For this reason, we ask that only parents whose child has died attend. Usually on the last Friday of each month, our venues are always child friendly and bereaved siblings are welcome. On occasions, we are joined by professionals working in bereavement and end of life care, counsellors or other professionals who can offer support through #bemoreben. Dates and venues may change so check our Facebook page for updates.

Be More Ben Family Lunch Club

DATES AND VENUE TBC

We found after Ben died that there was hardly any support available for grandparents and none for other family members, such as aunts and uncles. Not only does the extended family have to cope with their own loss, they often have to provide the majority of the support for the immediate family, parents and siblings. With this in mind, we are going to host Sunday Lunches for families affected by the loss of a child in the family so they can build support networks with other people who understand. Dates and venues may change so check our Facebook page for updates.

Ongoing Counselling

Consistency is so important when your life has been so full of change, which is why we offer ongoing counselling to parents whose child has died for as long as it’s needed. We work with a number of highly qualified counsellors who are experienced in working with bereavement and loss. Sessions are available by referral only and are offered at a mutually convenient time for both you and your counsellor.

Supporting Your Well-Being 

SESSIONS AVAILABLE

Grief can be all consuming. Additionally, if you have cared for your child while they are unwell, taking time for yourself is almost impossible. We are so pleased to work with Victoria Gazzard, an experienced complimentary therapist so we can offer bereaved parents the opportunity to take some time themselves to support their health and well-being. Your sessions are tailored to meet your needs and may include; Massage, Reiki, Reflexology, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Metamorphic Touch. Sessions are by referral only and are offered at a mutually convenient time at the beautiful Iwood Manor Lodge in Wrington.
