Sessional Bereavement Support Worker
I’m Abbie, and I’m a trainee counselling psychologist. I have both a BSc (Hons) and a Masters in Psychology, and alongside my work with Star I am currently undertaking a doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I’ve been working with Star since October of 2021, and I have loved every bittersweet minute of it.
Bereavement can be a scary, lonely, and impossible experience, but it doesn’t need to be. There is no one size fits all to grief, or to the support that they might need. I aim to help support and guide young people through this challenging time by following their lead, listening to them, getting to know their needs, and providing care that is personalised to them and their situations. To be able to help and support so many wonderfully bright, creative, and brave children and young people during one of, if not the most, difficult periods of their lives is a privilege that I am incredibly proud to be a part of.
