Experiencing Grief and Loss

When someone is grieving, especially if it is their first experience of the death of someone close to them, not knowing what to expect or how to handle certain situations often intensifies their grief. Many people say that feeling they have little control over what is happening to them or around them is a significant factor that contributes to their anguish in the feeling they have little control over what is happening to them or around them..

Every loss is a very personal experience and no two people experience loss in the same way. Many people find it helps to talk with someone who is not part of their family or close circle of friends.

Part of the struggle of grieving involves attending to life changes and adjusting to new roles and relationships. Even though you may never manage to ‘get over’ the death of someone, it is possible to learn to live without them physically in your life and to find meaning again.

One to one individual individual counselling
One to one bereavement support can be over the phone, via email or face to face. It can be an opportunity to talk, in confidence, about the consequences of your loss, with someone who will be able to listen to your experience of grief. Support is person-centred, non-directive and can help you think through any changes you may need to make and find a new way to a new life.
