BeREAVEMENT AND LOSS
As a society, we aren’t good at talking about death or comforting those who are grieving. For this reason, grief can be an incredibly lonely time and the grieving person can be left feeling that there is something wrong with them, that they should be ‘over it’ by now. Not only have they lost a loved one, but they may feel isolated from the people who usually support them through difficult times. Those loved ones might also be grieving the loss themselves.
There is no timeline for grief. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Every feeling you have is valid.
As a grief counsellor, I offer a safe space for you to grieve, to talk about your loss, to find an expression for your feelings, to be compassionate towards yourself and move forward in your life.
When we experience other ‘endings’, perhaps a relationship break-up, being made redundant, or children leaving home, we need to go through a grieving process. As your counsellor, I can help you work through your feelings of loss as you adjust to life changes.
Dawn helped me to embrace my sad feelings rather than bury them. I have really benefitted from her help and can’t thank her enough.
