Psychotherapy and Counselling for Loss and Grief

Home » Counselling » Psychotherapy and Counselling for Loss and Grief

Unbearable feelings of loss can be triggered by the death of people in our lives, separation or breakdown in relationships and the loss of a job or indeed an idea of ones self or future. Our reaction to loss, mourning, can have a profound impact upon us and take many forms. Mourning is a natural process and it takes time but it can be one of the most painful human experiences.

We may hold grief for someone who was unborn through miscarriage, pregnancy termination or stillbirth. Our beliefs, thoughts, emotions and hopes for the future may be distorted significantly by the experience of loss. Feelings of shock, guilt or shame are common-place and the question “What if” can be a familiar preoccupation.

Psychotherapy and counselling can provide a safe and contained space to explore and experience what may feel like unbearable feelings. The therapist or counsellor will assist the person in mourning and work through the process to come to terms with their loss.
