Bereavement therapy examines how you behave and react in situations of loss that trigger anxiety. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one, but any loss can cause grief, including the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or a cherished dream. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness will never let up.
While these emotions can feel very painful, accepting them as part of the grieving process and allowing yourself to feel what you feel is necessary for healing.
As you deal with your loss, remember that there is no order or timetable for grief. Everyone grieves differently, but there are healthy ways to cope and heal from the pain.
Counselling offers a warm, empathic, safe and confidential environment in which the therapist and you collaboratively work towards healing.
- Working through the many feelings associated with your loss
