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
- 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:
- Social isolation
- Changes in appetite
- Loss of motivation
- Physical ill health
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.
