Bereavement Counselling

What is Bereavement?

Bereavement, sometimes called Grief, is a very complex human dynamic and is most often associated with the death of a significant person. However, it is important to understand that this is not necessarily always the case, in fact more people suffer from bereavement when they have lost someone they love, despite this person still being alive.

Anyone can suffer from the intense experience of loss, whether this is resulting from death, divorce or abandonment, the same emotions are involved irrespective of what the cause and these emotions can be extremely debilitation, causing confusion, anger and an all–consuming sense of hopelessness.

For anyone excperiencing grief on this scale, there are a set number of stages to the grief model and, although not everyone passes through all of these stages, they pass through most. With this in mind, it is important to understand what these stages are and how they may manifest themselves so that each individual can prepare and cope better. The good news is that all grief will subside and pass with time, it is just the journey that can feel a little rough.

Regaining hope and finding renewed purpose in your life can seem an impossible task for many, for some it is the last thing they want. With time though, this is what is needed in order for your life to move forwards once more. With professional help and the right support network in place these things are achievable.
