Counselling For Grief & Bereavement
If you have experienced the death of someone who was important to you, you might be finding it difficult to adjust to the changes happening in your life right now. Some experts say that grief is actually another form of love. Whilst this is a very natural emotion it can be devasting to some.
The death of a parent, partner, child or friend – whether expected or sudden can trigger grief that seems insurmountable and endless. The truth is there is no set time limit to grief and that is quite natural.
According to the NHS, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Shock and numbness – this is usually the first reaction to loss, and people often talk about 'being in a daze'
- Overwhelming sadness, with lots of crying
- Tiredness or exhaustion
- Anger – towards the person you've lost or the reason for your loss
- Guilt – guilt about feeling angry, about something you said or did not say, or not being able to stop your loved one dying
