Anam Cara Online Bereavement Support Evening

Anam Cara provides information, resources and bereavement support after the death of a child of any age and through all circumstances to all bereaved parents.


We are delighted to be hosting another Bereavement Support and Information Evening in October.

Our next event is taking place on Thursday 21st October at 7pm. Our guest speaker for the evening is Brid Carroll. Brid, is a qualified Psychotherapist and Counselling Supervisor who has worked with a special interest in loss and bereavement issues for over twenty years. She holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Childhood Bereavement with St. Christopher’s Hospice, London and a Higher Diploma in Bereavement Studies from the Royal College of Surgeons and NUI Ireland.  Brid has worked with the Irish Hospice Foundation and the HSE as Bereavement Liaison Officer in the HSE South region. Brid is presently counselling children, young people and families dealing with loss and change through death separation and illness.

Brid will open the evening with a short talk on parental grief. She will cover the different circumstances of death, whether expected or sudden. She will also talk about the impact a death of son or daughter on grieving parents and surviving siblings, along with the complex issues grieving parents must face, highlighting what is normal in the process.

After Brids talk, there will be an opportunity for parents to talk to our Anam Cara Facilitators and volunteer parents.

This would be an appropriate event for any bereaved parents. In particular parents who have been recently bereaved or have not received any bereavement support since the death of their son or daughter.

This is a parent only event and they can reserve their place on this Eventbrite link https://bit.ly/3mqSwq5
