When we lose someone or something that is close to our heart, we can feel intense pain.
Often our social network is unable or unwilling to hear our pain for as long as we need to express it.
Counselling and psychotherapy can help with bereavement and loss by giving you a place where you can express your thoughts and feelings knowing that the psychotherapist will be there for you however long it takes.
Sometimes the natural process of bereavement can also ‘get stuck’.
When this happens a trained psychotherapist can often spot how bereavement is the underlying cause for more complex problems.
Unresolved grief can often cast a shadow for decades into the future.
This is particularly the case for the loss of a parent in childhood, or the loss of a child as an adult.
Professional psychotherapy support can help you become unstuck, allowing the natural process to reengage, and healing to occur.
