Pet Bereavement Counselling
What makes us different is that as well as being counsellors, we are all pet owners – between us we have over 100 years of pet ownership! We understand how important pets are in our lives, and the difficult choices that sometimes have to be made. We understand too, only too well, the distress caused by the loss of a beloved pet, or indeed of a working or assistance animal.
45% of UK households include a pet. As you are well aware, pets increase our quality of life, improve our mood, and offer us real health benefits. For many of us, our pet is our best friend, an important member of the family. But when a pet is aging, terminally ill, lost or stolen, placed in a new home or has died, the end of the relationship can cause significant emotional distress. The grief that is felt is real and can be overwhelming. Often it isn’t taken seriously by family and friends, and it can really help to talk to someone who is not personally involved.
