Bereavement & Grief Counselling
When someone dies or you experience a loss you may feel a number of things including shock, pain, loss, anger, guilt, depression, longing, emptiness and even isolation as often people don’t know what to say and how to respond to your loss and so they avoid you.
If a person has died then often once the funeral is over many of the people who did come forwards with condolences will quite naturally get back to their normal lives yet for you the pain continues.
Or if your loss might be something else, a limb, a role, something else of great importance in your life you will also have to go through the same grief process and adjustment and as your Counsellor we can help you through the process but also we will understand that it will take time for you to come to terms with and we will always be happen to listen and give you ways to work through your grief and give you comfort. We may also look at areas that need adjustment, acceptance and resolution in order to move forwards.

Case Study – Henry (Name Changed)
Henry a well dressed, neat and tidy man and father to two daughters came to me many years ago when tragically one of his daughters died from Leukaemia. The circumstances and the pain with which she died in hospital had left him with great unresolved anger and he had not been able to recover from his grief.
As we delivered into the intervening years it became clear he had simply stopped caring about anything and had withdrawn from socialising or even spending much time with his other daughter.
He just felt like he was functioning but no longer alive inside. His loss and the trauma of it had left him emotionally traumatised, heart broken and emotionally closed up and his daughter and wife felt very resentful that he no longer paid any attention to them at all.
He had felt so low he had considered giving up on his life but slowly and surely I encouraged him to open up to me and express his feelings. Losing his child has left him feeling powerless and useless as he was unable to protect her and save her. He felt as her father he should have been able to protect her and he felt on some level that he had failed and this left him feeling emasculated as if he had failed.
On having the space and privacy to just express all his feelings and Henry used some of my suggested tools and techniques to release his pain and anger and in time he realised that he still could make a difference in his life by supporting and spending time with his other daughter who had felt grief stricken by her sister’s loss and then abandoned emotionally by her father.
In time I heard from Henry that he had returned to a shared special holiday place that he had shared with his wife and children years before and he held a small private remembrance for her there. His daughter expressed afterwards that he had become quite a changed man since he finished counselling and they had got Dad back.
