Grief, Bereavement or Loss Counselling

Losing someone is never easy, even if you’re losing someone through a separation or divorce. We understand that tragedy such as this can have a significant effect on your everyday life. Through counselling I can help you work through your hurt and pain and help you to find a way to deal with it that you’re comfortable with.

Death of a spouse or partner

Sometimes relationship counselling involves dealing with the death of a loved one. It can be a major life challenge to adapt to the death of a spouse or death of your partner.It’s very common to seek help after losing someone close to you. Being bereaved can be one of the most stressful and difficult experiences in life. Counselling can help to support you deal with bereavement offering a safe and non-judgemental environment. Some of those feelings or emotions might be:

  • Overwhelming sadness and loss
  • Difficulty in accepting that the loved one has actually gone
  • Sense of injustice or unfairness
  • Fear for the future
  • Sometimes some relief (perhaps after illness or relationship difficulties).
