Loss & Bereavement

You are here:

Loss shows up in our lives in various forms, it might be the loss of a job, the death of a family member, or a beloved pet, you might be experiencing estrangement from family members or childlessness, whatever the loss it is often life changing.  There isn’t always a lot of space in our lives to process the feelings of grief in whatever way they manifest, whether there is sadness, anger, depression, shock or disbelief there are a multitude of ways grief can show up. 

You may find yourself struggling with family dynamics following a loss of parent or sibling or feeling overwhelmed by simple everyday tasks, it might be hard for you to concentrate or focus or you might feel isolated in your grief. Grief is an individual process for everyone and it’s possible you will feel misunderstood.

My experience of counselling at a north London bereavement service has shown me that providing a safe, confidential space for people to explore the emotions and complexities around a loss can be a helpful step to take.

"Grief turns out to be a place none of us know until we reach it"
