Grief and Loss
Counselling or Psychotherapy)
Grief is a reaction to any form of loss that encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger, and the process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to what was lost, and other factors. Whether a loss is sudden or expected, it is highly distressing and traumatic. People feel tremendous stress and strain when someone they love dies, and no matter what the circumstances, grief can include a wide range of emotions from sadness to anger. Loss can also be the loss of a relationship after a marriage breaks down for example, or the loss of an animal, a home, a job etc. Grief counselling is intended to help the client grieve healthily, to understand and cope with the emotions they experience, and to ultimately find a way to move on.
