Pained by a loss? Bereavement counselling can support you at these difficult times.
The first usual response to a bereavement is one of shock and disbelief
Counselling can be a helpful way of coming to terms with loss
Death of a loved one is often the most common reason for seeking a bereavement counsellor
At some stage in our lives, we have to face the heartache of losing someone, or something, we care deeply about. We could feel a variety of emotions and sensations such as shock, emotional numbness, anger, guilt and regret. We may also feel depressed, exhausted and slowed down.
The pain of losing something or even someone we care so deeply about can seem so monumental that we may feel like we can never recover from the loss. Yet, while we each have our personal ways of coming to terms with bereavement and grief, for those who cannot process these difficult emotions, such losses can leave deep emotional scars and possibly lasting emotional difficulties.
