NWBS is a registered charity, which provides confidential one-to-one counselling support for people who have experienced bereavement or loss, including pet loss.  The service is free of charge, but we do accept donations, if they are offered.

A bereavement or loss can be one of the most traumatic and stressful periods in a person's life.  There are times when it becomes difficult or impossible to cope with this alone, or it may not be appropriate to involve friends or family with your problems.

It is at times like this when you may feel it would be useful to talk to someone who is not personally involved with your bereavement or loss.


We are an independent voluntary organisation funded by donations and offering a free confidential support service to those experiencing bereavement or loss.

We are a recognised and registered organisation operating under the BACP's Code of Ethics.
