Bereavement is the feeling of grief when we lose someone or something close to us, or are suddenly facing big life changes.
Death and loss are an inevitable part of life and the accompanying shock, numbness, anger and sadness form part of the natural grieving process.
However, if we leave these feelings unprocessed then such losses can leave us with emotional scars and long term problems.
How can Counselling help with Bereavement/Grief?
If you are experiencing grief or loss then counselling can help you process your feelings in a more healthy way.
Our counsellors offer you a space to talk in a confidential and safe space; help you through the grieving process and in your own time help you accept the loss and discover your own coping strategies. Your counsellor can support you on this journey on either a short term or longer term basis.
