Grief and Loss

Counselling for Grief and Loss

Grief is a strong, sometimes overwhelming emotion for people and can be one of the most psychologically distressing experiences an individual ever has to face.

Grief, although painful, is a natural reaction to loss and can be created by a range of issues:

  • Death of a loved one, friend or colleague
  • Ending of an important relationship
  • Miscarriage or abortion
  • Terminal illness
  • Divorce
  • Job loss or redundancy
  • Loss through theft
  • Loss of independence through disability
  • Children leaving home

Though grief is universally felt, it is a personal experience and creates different emotions for everyone – which can be both intense and overwhelming. Most commonly, it can create feelings of:

  • Shock
  • Disbelief
  • Social isolation
  • Pain
  • Helplessness
  • Sleeplessness
  • Anger
  • Exhaustion
  • Irritability
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Changes in appetite
  • Depression
  • Numbness
  • Loss of motivation
  • Longing
  • Apathy
  • Physical ill health
  • Loneliness
  • Denial

These feelings can also affect your relationship with others and possibly create a dependence on alcohol and drugs.

If you are not sure whether the grief you feel is normal or you feel that you need grief support to help you work through your feelings, our trained bereavement counsellors will be able to help you.

How can grief counselling help?

Grief can be a lonely experience. Grief counselling allows you the opportunity to express and release the emotions and feelings that you have. You will be able to talk openly without the worry of offending or upsetting someone close to you.

Grief counselling can also help you through the various stages of grieving. Though no one person feels the same as another it is common, however, to feel shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger and frustration and depression, loneliness and isolation. But from this pain there is adjustment to the new situation, a belief and the ability to rebuild and finally acceptance and hope for the future.

Grief counselling with one of our dedicated trained counsellors can offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment where you can safely address the issues you face and help you come to terms with your grief in a way that is most appropriate for you.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
