When It's Your Time To Talk

Phone:

Our caring counsellors are here to support you with a confidential chat when you’re ready. No matter how far along the pregnancy was, or whether your loss was recent or in the past.

Sessions: 50 mins by appointment.

Video:

Speak face-to-face (virtually) within a safe environment. Our counsellors use earphones to ensure chat privacy and our online platform operates with a secure “closed door” function.

Sessions: 50 mins by appointment.

Online Chat:

We understand that not everyone is ready to talk verbally. This online service enables you to click into a text chat and see your counsellor, and you can choose to share your screen if you wish.

Sessions: 50 mins by appointment.

In Person:

When you feel that talking face-to-face is your next step, we are here for you. With locations in both Castle Hill and Miranda, we offer our time and guidance with no pressure or expectations.

Sessions: 50 mins by appointment.

Get Connected

Tee up with other dads that have experienced what you’re going through. We facilitate a private and secure WhatsApp group where you can share a thought or post a photo, and know the people on the other side will get it. Many dads have made great mates through chatting.

It’s pretty simple. Request to join by sending a text to 0422 447 268 with your name and a short message or email support@bearsofhope.org.au with your details. The group administrator will be in touch with a few short questions before approval.

Connect through one of our Facebook groups. These groups are private, forums for bereaved parents (and one for family and friends) across Australia. They are an opportunity to speak when it’s too hard in person, and a place to start healing with those who understand.
