Grief & Loss

Grief and loss is inevitable as you go through life and yet when it happens, often you feel shocked to the core and cycling through the five aspects of grief:

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance

It’s unlikely that you’ll experience these neatly and in order. Grief and loss has a tendency to be messy and painful and can bring up old losses we thought we had healed from.

Grief isn’t always death either – we can grieve the loss of people who are still alive, the loss of hopes and dreams when life doesn’t turn out the way we planned and we can grieve for what we needed but never received when we were children.

While there’s nothing that can bring back someone who has died, or a relationship with someone who won’t or can’t be in contact with you anymore, therapy can help you work through your painful feelings and help you find a sense of purpose and meaning from what has happened.

I provide you with:

  • A safe space to explore and express what you’re feeling (and what you’re not feeling)
  • Understanding your grief and how you can learn to live with it
  • The tools to transition through your grief so you can rebuild a life without your loved one.
