Bereavement and Loss

Grief is Natural...

Grieving is a natural response to the death of someone you love, but it can be distressing and traumatic; when someone you love dies it can feel as if the world has changed forever and become an unfamiliar and lonely place.

Grief can be Isolating...

You may not be able to share your pain with your family and you may feel isolated and as if no one understands or wants to know how you are feeling.  It may feel as though everyone else’s lives have moved on, but you still feel desperately sad and isolated.  Perhaps people do not know what to say to you, or perhaps when they try to talk to you they say the wrong thing.


Grief can be Frightening...

Grieving can be very painful and alarming, and it can feel horribly unsettling; you may be experiencing feelings that you don’t understand.

How Counselling can Help...

If you would like someone to listen and spend time with you while you begin to come to terms with what has happened to you please do contact me.


There are all sorts of other losses that can cause similar feelings of distress, for example: the loss of a marriage, the loss of a pet, the loss of a career or your children leaving home to begin their adult lives. There may be other losses that are painful for you.

Loss can be confusing and upsetting - it might feel as if you have lost your way.
If you would like some help please contact me.
