The location of appointments is agreed between the families and the counsellor to provide the most suitable package of care to the child or young person. 


Beatrice Standen - Bereavement Co-ordinator

The child and adolescent bereavement services (CABS) offers individual and group bereavement counselling to children and adolescents in the Northamptonshire area, in a school setting or at the Northampton General Hospital, children's out-patients department.

We offer support to parents, carers, school staff or any agency which are caring or working with a bereaved child or adolescent.

We also offer support to families where a member has a terminal illness.

Training can be provided to schools and agencies.

About the team

The child & adolescent bereavement service is run by a full time qualified bereavement coordinator and administration support.

We are also assisted by volunteer bereavement counsellors, who are trained in counselling, covering areas such as person centred counselling, psychodynamics and cognitive behaviours.
