Our specialised bereavement services support families who are suffering from anticipated loss.

Often, the grieving process begins from the moment of terminal diagnosis. At The Laura Centre, it’s our mission to provide unwavering support every step of the way. 

We recognise that this anticipatory grief is just as valid and challenging as the grief following a loss. That’s why our team of experienced professionals are on hand to provide compassionate assistance from the initial diagnosis to the subsequent stages of bereavement.

Grief counselling is an integral component of this support, providing individuals with a nurturing environment to rebuild their lives and tools to manage their emotions. 

To refer yourself or a child or young person for anticipated grief support, please speak to a member of our team on 0116 254 4341. Alternatively, visit our Contact Us page to discover our opening hours and more.

Extra Support & Resources For Families

When a parent or child is diagnosed with a terminal illness, you may experience anxiety, anger, loneliness or confusion. 

To help you navigate the unique challenges of the anticipatory loss, our therapists have collated a range of useful resources.

Services For Adults & Couples

At The Laura Centre, we also provide free bereavement counselling for children, young people and families who have experienced the loss of a parent, carer or sibling. 

Led by qualified therapists, this support recognises that children and young people grieve differently from adults, and provides a safe space to help them express their feelings and thoughts comfortably.
