There is an immense amount of pain involved when people experience a profound loss. You may have lost a loved one through death or are going through a relationship breakup, job redundancy, business failure or deteriorating health. Grieving is the inherent and inevitable reaction to all these losses. At one stage in our lives, all of us will experience loss, grief and bereavement.
During Grief Counselling I listen and bear witness to your experience. I acknowledge the full extent of your pain. Perhaps there is guilt, anger, confusion or shame also present in the turmoil of feelings. There often is. Opening up to the healing properties of (self-)compassion is never more pivotal than when we are trying to find our way back to life, that has changed by our loss so dramatically.
People often want to know whether the way they are feeling is ‘normal‘. Throughout Grief Counselling, I will help you realise that your feelings, whilst individual and deeply personal, are a normal part of the grieving process. It is ok to feel this way.
Together we will explore ways for you to come to terms with your loss and move forward with your life.
I can help you if:
- your grief interferes with everyday functioning: stops you live your life as well as it is possible within the scope of your new circumstances.
- your grief manifests in physical and emotional symptoms: sleep disturbance, changes in appetite, mood swings, hard to shame, anger or guilt.
- you find yourself left alone with no one around who understands your feelings.
