Grief Counselling

Grief Counselling

Are you struggling to move forward after a loss? The experience can evoke distressing emotions; anger, denial, sadness, despair, guilt, confusion, disbelief, numbness or fear. You might be unable to stop crying, to concentrate, sleep or eat, feel withdrawn or over-reactive. You may feel like you are going crazy. But as painful as this is your reactions are normal. And with the support of family and friends you will start to work through your grief. However, if you lack support or you are experiencing complex grief then grief counselling is needed.

Grief Counselling

Secondary losses – Grief is often exacerbated by other losses. These might include  loss of income, home, other relationships, sense of freedom, meaning, intimacy, independence, mental health, certainty, and sense of self and identity.

All change is loss – When we think about grief we tend to associate it with the loss of a loved one or beloved pet – bereavement. And this is certainly one of the most distressing experiences any of us will ever have in our life time. However, there are other unwelcome life experiences that can also turn your life inside-out. Such as, miscarriage, job loss / business failure, relationship breakdown, moving, and in 2020 the impact of Covid-19. The list goes on. 

There are also the everyday life changes we experience. Most of the time we adapt to them. But sometimes they blindside us. Or we experience too many in a short period of time and like the game Jenga game the last block threatens to topple us. 

As a grief counsellor I help my clients make sense of their loss and find meaning again 

If you are not coping with your grief, feel unsupported or are experiencing complicated grief its time to ask for help. Counselling can support you through the process of transitioning from life before your loss, to a different way of living – with a renewed sense of hope and meaning in your life. It’s not about getting over the loss, it’s about how you integrate it into your life moving forward.
