Counselling whilst you are experiencing grief can offer support to talk through your loss, exploring your feelings and help you work towards coming to terms with your loss.
While they are traditionally centred on emotional responses, they also include physical, cognitive, behavioural and social elements. While bereavement and grief are used interchangeably, bereavement refers to the state of loss while grief is the reaction to that loss. Bereavement counselling can help the person going through the bereavement process to deal with the situation and come to an understanding of the situation.
Although some people are generally more comfortable talking to friends and family about their loss, many benefit from talking to a professional counsellor. Dealing with loss needn’t be or shouldn’t be a solitary experience – as a counsellor, I can help!
