Grief & Bereavement Counselling
Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one and grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions, such as fear, guilt, anger, and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person depending on their background, beliefs, relationship to the person who has passed, and other factors. You might be feeling uncertain about how to move forward and need support processing through these difficult and often traumatic emotions and experiences.
Loss comes in many forms other than death, including moral injury, abandonment, estrangement, divorce, job/career loss, health changes, mortality, loss of childhood, expectations and hopes, dreams and visions of the future, potential, or ability. Often loss forces us to evaluate expectations and needs, mourn our past selves, and take a leap of faith into the unknown. All change involves a grieving process.
Every grieving experience is different. A person may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, yet not be able to get out of bed after another. Whatever your personal struggles are, grief counselling can help.
