Counselling Services

It is not uncommon to seek professional help when loss is hard to bear and many parents have benefited from such invaluable support.  We list some counselling services in Singapore used by parents in our network.  Please note that they are listed in no particular order and fees/charges may apply.  It is always best to “shop around” for a counsellor who suits your needs and whom you can relate to comfortably ; do call them, meet them and discuss your requirements.
