Grief/ Bereavement Counselling
"Your grief is your love, turned inside-
When your sadness seems bottomless, it is because your love knows no bounds"
~ Alison Nappi
To grieve for someone who has died is the most natural thing in the world but everybody's journey with grief is different and depending on who you may have lost and the circumstances of that loss the depth and range of emotions can be difficult to manage. To experience numbness, disbelief, despair, depression, loneliness, anger, guilt, is all perfectly normal and there is nothing shameful about any of these feelings. Reactions and emotions may change day to day, even hour by hour and for some people, these mood swings may be frightening.
Many people find it helpful to talk to someone, outside the family, who will listen and support you as you begin to come to terms with your loss.
Turning to bereavement counselling after the loss of a loved one is not an acknowledgment of weakness, but instead is an admission of the strength. When a loved one dies, we have to adjust to a different world. This may be a place where future hopes and dreams we had made with our loved one have to be relinquished, where we regret no longer having the opportunity to speak words we wish we had said or change words spoken in haste.
Your first appointment with me will allow you the opportunity to talk through your feelings and discuss your personal sense of loss.

"Grief does not change you. It reveals you.
And herein lies the gift that cannot die.
It changes the course of your life forever.
If you allow yourself the chance to feel it for as long as you need to
— even if it is for the rest of your life — you will be guided by it.
You will become someone it would have been impossible for you to be,
and in this way your loved one lives on, in you"
