Living with Loss

Bereavement and grief are experiences that are almost certain to happen to each of us sooner or later in life. Counselling can help us to rebuild our lives following the loss of someone close.

Grief is a natural reaction after the death of someone who has been close to us. When we're grieving, it can be difficult to understand what's happening. Grief is often a solitary, unique experience and coping with the loss of a loved one and the resulting mix of emotions can be overwhelming.

In the aftermath of a death it is perfectly normal to cycle through many different emotions. Feelings of sadness, confusion, frustration, anger, denial, guilt and even relief can all be typical of those who are grieving. All parts of life can be affected by bereavement and, like a physical injury, the recovery and healing process can take time. This period cannot be rushed and varies from individual to individual.

Whilst grieving for someone we have lost is a natural process, it is very easy for grief to spiral out of control or take over our lives. It may start to interfere with our relationships, ability to work and our overall health and wellbeing.

Bereavement counselling can help us better understand our reactions and emotions. It can provide us with a safe space for us to talk about the person we have lost, the circumstances of his or her death and the role they played in our life. Counselling can also be an important first step in helping us to explore how we would like our lives to take shape in the future.
