Independent funeral directors Wathall’s has expanded its bereavement support service to help more local families come to terms with losing a loved one.

Having established its Dandelions Bereavement Support service for adults last year, the professional help available has now been extended to children and young people aged eight and above.

The children and young people’s bereavement counselling service will be headed by qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor Sarah Legg, who is an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.

She, and fellow Wathall’s counsellor Fay Bloor, meet with clients in a dedicated bereavement counselling room at the firm’s Allestree branch, in Duffield Road.

Sarah said: “Every child and young person handle grief in different ways – just as adults do.

“Working with children and young people is my passion and I feel privileged to be part of the Wathall’s bereavement support team and have this opportunity to provide dedicated counselling, which is very much needed in the local communities that we serve.”
