Bereavement Counselling is a lifeline when loss has left you feeling overwhelmed or numb
Losing that vital attachment of someone can be traumatic and can leave us feeling emotionally devastated, beyond belief - whether that be a loved one, family member, friend, or pet.
It is natural to go through a range of physical and emotional responses, to a significant change in our personal world.
Bereavement has and will impact on us all in different ways, and it's possible to experience many ranges of emotion.

How can I help as a Grief Counsellor?
Grief Counselling provides you with a safe, confidential space for you to feel, think, and express emotions, at your own pace. This non-judgmental approach will support you to be seen, heard and feel fully understood, which can be a great relief.
As a Grief Counsellor, I can help you learn coping tools, such as skills and techniques. This will include the Grief Process and the 5 Stages of Grief.
It is important to recognise that you are grieving the loss that you have experienced, even though some people may not understand your loss and tell you to get on with it.
As with all types of loss, finding a way to express your emotions is key to making the psychological adjustment needed and incorporating your loss into your life moving forward.

Other forms of Grief & Loss
Feelings of grief can also happen because of other types of loss or changes in circumstances. This can be triggered by any event that involves an identity-altering type of loss.
The end of a relationship / marriage or friendships
The loss of a job / financial loss
Moving away to a new location
A decline in our physical or mental health
Life changing illness or injury
Reaching out can take all your inner-strength and courage, but the benefits of doing so, can be huge in the long run...
The loss of Family Pets
The loss of a pet impacts everyone differently. Feelings of despair, loneliness and even depression can be overwhelming. There may also be a strong sense of guilt and self-doubt, particularly when a decision has been taken to euthanise or rehome a pet.
Grieving for a pet can be a very lonely experience. Often friends, family or colleagues don’t quite understand the pain and emotion that losing a pet can bring.
