Grief is something we all have to deal with at some point in our lives. We will all lose someone that is special to us, loss of someone you love can be harder than you expect. It’s not uncommon for some people to struggle for a long time, which is a sign that it may be time to consider a qualified and professional bereavement therapist.
Everyone grieves at their own pace, it’s your own reaction to losing someone, which includes a full range of feelings. Feelings can include sadness to anger. How you adapt to losing a person will vary from one person to the next.
Grief counselling enables us to help you grieve in a healthier way, understanding and coping with your emotions. There are five stages of grief that you will probably go through, this includes denial, anger, bargaining, depression and then accepting. During this time, many people also experience physical symptoms including nausea, fatigue, aches and pains, heart palpitations, weight gain or weight loss, feeling light headed and insomnia.
