We provide therapeutic bereavement counselling for children and young people aged 5 to 25 years.

The Laura Centre is a children’s bereavement charity dedicated to helping young people and families navigate the challenging journey of grief. 

Our specialised services recognise that children and young people grieve differently from adults. That’s why we offer age-appropriate interventions, such as one-on-one talking and play therapy, to help them express their feelings and thoughts comfortably.

We also provide systemic support for bereaved families, led by qualified therapists who work to address the changes, challenges and emotions that arise after the death of a loved one. This approach encourages open communication, understanding and healing for all.

To refer a child or young person for bereavement counselling, 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.

Resources To Support With Bereavement

The impact of loss is profound. But with the right support, children can be encouraged to explore their grief at their own pace.

To help you navigate the unique challenges of bereavement, our therapists have selected a range of resources for young people.

Services For Adults & Couples

At The Laura Centre, we also provide free bereavement counselling for adults and couples who have experienced the devastating loss of a child. 

This one-on-one talking therapy provides a confidential and supportive environment for individuals to explore their grief, memories and emotions.
