Why Bereavement Counselling?
Everyone responds differently to bereavement and working through grief takes time.
Some common feelings can be:
Profound sadness and pain - at the loss of someone in our lives
Guilt - perhaps there was something we feel we could or should have done
Anger - even towards the person who has died
Talking to relatives and friends may be an important part of expressing grief and coming to terms with it.
However, it can be helpful to talk to someone not personally involved who will listen without needing to talk about themselves, who won't say 'pull yourself together' or 'it's time you got on with your life'.
