Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we can go through. Today approximately 300,000 people in Ireland are coming to terms with the death of someone important in their life, perhaps a parent, a wife, a husband, a child or a sibling.
The death may be through natural causes, Accident, Suicide, Murder, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, Stillborn Baby, Miscarriage or Cot Death. Maybe the death was recent, or maybe it occurred many years ago. Grief is a powerful, often painful and confusing response to the loss of an important person.
What is the meaning of life? We are born, we grow up, we meet someone special, or maybe we don’t, we have children, or maybe we don’t. Either through illness, accident or other circumstances, we die.
• What’s it all about?
• Is there a God?
• Is there a Heaven?
• Why are we here?
• Will we meet again?

I worked as a Bereavement Counsellor and Supervisor for ten years. I developed a speciality in helping people who had been bereaved traumatically through road traffic accidents, murder and suicide and I facilitated a Suicide Support Group. This bereavement work, throughout "the troubles" provided invaluable experience.
"The loss of our son who was killed in a road traffic collision devastated us. Counselling enabled us to make some sense of it all. Padraig was an amazing source of strength to us."
