Bereavement counselling

Dealing with bereavement, particularly if it involves the loss of a partner, close friend or relative, can be very difficult and may result in having to adjust to significant changes in your life.

Grief can change everything - your beliefs, your personality and even your sense of reality. Although completely normal, grief can show itself in a number of unexpected ways.

For example, some people get angry, others may withdraw into themselves and while a few become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious - like depression.

Bereavement is the time spent adjusting to the loss of this person in our lives. There is no time limit (despite the Victorians going into official mourning for a year and a day) and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period - everyone will cope in their own particular way.

Counselling for bereavement offers support and helps people cope more effectively with their loss. Talking about the loss often allows a person to make important adjustments to their life. By bottling things up or denying the sadness, the pain could be unnecessarily prolonged.

Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward. Bereavement counselling tries to help clients find a place for their loss so they can continue with their life and eventually find acceptance. It also aims to get you to the point where you can function normally.

More specifically, bereavement counselling can:

  • help you understand the mourning process
  • help resolve any areas of conflict that may be remaining
  • explore areas that may be preventing you from moving on
  • help you adjust to life with a new sense of self
  • address any possible issues of depression or suicidal thoughts
