Grief and bereavement

Grief is an intense emotion which ocurrs as a result of acute loss, usually the death of someone important or close to you

People can go through different stages in the process of grief; these different feelings are normal and it is helpful to understand this. If you become stuck at any point in the process of grieving then often a sense of hopelessness or depression can develop. It is important to recognise that you may need help in understanding what you are experinecing. Once the process is understood and completed it is possible to move forward in life and create a positive future. Often the fear behind allowing grief to pass is that somehow this means you will be letting the person go if you move forward.

If you are experiencing the loss of someone important to you and sadness which is painful and you find it difficult to move forward with your life I can help you understand why this might be and help you find peace of mind. Do come to see me for an Initial Consultation where we can talk about this gently and without obligation.
