SUPPORTING YOU IN TIMES OF NEED
HBBS is a local ‘not for profit’ organisation which was founded in 1989. We offer a professional and confidential counselling service to local adults, young people and children. In the first instance our work was primarily addressing issues relating to bereavement but over the years we have diversified our work in response to the needs of local people and now offer generic counselling to support people of all ages with a wide range of issues. However, our bereavement support work continues to be important to us.
Our work covers not only the Havering and Brentwood areas, but also extends to Billericay, Wickford, Laindon, Pitsea and Basildon areas and we have access to counselling rooms across this geographical area.
We offer individual counselling programmes:
Bereavement and generic counselling for adults
Bereavement counselling for children and young people incorporating our 'Kids in it Together Club' organising social and activity events for former clients (All funded by grants, donations and fundraising) and generic counselling.
Training and support for teachers and other professionals working with vulnerable people in our community
Emergency clinical support team responding to local need at a time of crisis
