BEREAVEMENT AND LOSS COUNSELLING
If you have experienced the death of someone who was important to you, you might be finding it difficult to adjust to the changes happening in your life right now. Grief can shake everything up - your beliefs, your routines, and even your sense of normality.
Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period - everyone copes in their own way.
Grief, although normal, can manifest in unexpected ways. Some people get angry, some people withdraw into themselves and some people become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can trigger mental health conditions, like depression.
Bereavement counselling can provide support during these very difficult times. As a bereavement counsellor I can help you cope with grief and adjust to life without your loved one.Talking about the loss often allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes - good and bad. Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to adjust. I can help you to find a place for your loss so you can carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.
When someone you care about suddenly leaves your life, it's not a case of taking time out to recover. 'Recovery' suggests that you will emerge exactly the same as you were before. In reality, all of your experiences shape the person you are, and experiencing the death of someone you care about often has the biggest impact.Bereavement is about trying to accept what happened, learning to adjust to life without that person and finding a place to keep their memory alive while you try to get along as best you can.
