The number of sessions needed may vary from between one or two, to periods of up to two years. People who use the Service may have lost a baby in pregnancy, or have had to endure the death of a partner, child, lover, parent, relation, friend or colleague in many different circumstances. The deaths may have been caused by illness, accident, suicide, murder, war or natural causes. Very often people may experience a loss or life event that brings up old memories or feelings from earlier bereavements.
