WHAT IS GRIEF?

Grief is messy, gutty, wild, powerful. It unseats us, turns us inside out and upside down. Grief can make us feel that we’re losing our mind. Can make us do strange things. Grief can make us feel that we no longer know who we are anymore.

Grief is anything but tidy. Grief can wipe out any sense of happiness, contentment, and generally being ok. Grief makes us, our life and everything in it feel massively not ok. Grief can feel like a life sentence we don’t deserve. Grief can cause us to isolate ourselves from ordinary life, from close family and friends. ¬†We tell ourselves that no-one would want to be with us, because we’re ‘infected’ with grief.

After a while we get the feeling that even our closest friends and family are finding our grieving and sorrows too much. After about 6 months we’re reminded that ‘it’s time to move on’. The thing is, grief doesn’t have a time limit, a sell-by date. Grief stays with us for life. It changes over time and as we adapt to it and understand it. It doesn’t remain intense and all-consuming for ever. But it does remain a companion, a part of our life.

GRIEF IS A HEAVY BURDEN

Grief demands to be taken seriously. It won’t be dismissed although it consents to be submerged, only to erupt later. Oh yes… it doesn’t go away by itself after a while.

Grief is a heavy burden which we cannot carry alone. Talking with close family and friends can take us a long way, but close family and friends may also be grieving.

Taking your grief to a Therapist, who isn’t involved in your social circles, takes immense courage and determination.

Grief Therapy can enable you to set down burdens, lighten your step and enable you to imagine your life without your loved one.

Talking with a Grief Therapist is a positive, self-caring step to take.

What is Grief Therapy?

Grief therapy, also known as grief counselling or bereavement therapy, is a specialised form of counselling aimed at helping individuals navigate the complex and often overwhelming emotions associated with loss and grief. This therapeutic approach provides a supportive and compassionate space for individuals to express and process their feelings, thoughts, and experiences after the death of a loved one or other significant losses.

Grief therapy can be beneficial for those struggling with various aspects of grief, including sadness, anger, guilt, confusion, and feelings of isolation. It offers a safe and non-judgmental environment for individuals to explore their grief, learn coping strategies, and find ways to adjust to life without their loved one.

What are the benefits of Grief Therapy?

Among the many benefits of grief therapy is a key benefit of reaching a point when you feel able to release the intensity of your emotional and psychological distress relating to the loss of your loved one and to begin creating a continued relationship (known as continuing bonds) with them. While grief remains with us for the rest of our life it doesn’t mean that it feels intense and horrendous forever. The feel of grief changes as our lives change.

I am anticipating a death, can you help?

Many people benefit from being able to recognise and understand how anticipatory grief affects them. This can help us to feel empowered instead of helpless and confused and may help us support our loved one who’s dying.
