The Grief Journey

 

If you have experienced the death of someone who was very important to you, you may be finding it very difficult to adjust to the immense changes that are happening in your life right now.

 

Grief can shake everything up - your beliefs, your personality, and even your sense of reality.

Grief, although normal, can manifest in many  unexpected ways. Some people might get angry, some people withdraw further into themselves and some people become completely numb.

Bereavement counselling may be able to provide support during these  difficult times. Talking about the loss can allow a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes - good and bad. Keeping things bottled up or denying the sadness could prolong the pain.

 

Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward. Bereavement counselling tries to help you find a place for your loss so that you can carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.

Some people have the support of family and fiends and don't need the help of a professional. Others feel they would like to talk to somebody outside of their circle who has not been affected by this loss.

Bereavement counselling takes place in your own home and sessions last approximately one hour.

Sometimes only  one or two sessions are needed to clear  thoughts, at other times the journey can take a little longer. Each person's grief journey is unique to them and there is no right or wrong way to grieve, just your way.
