Grief Counselling – Bereavement & Loss

grief counselling for bereavement and loss

The loss of a loved one, whether it is a family member, friend, colleague or pet can be very hard to bear.

Death may be expected or unexpected, a suicide and sometimes, unexplained and all of these circumstances can bring a wide range of feelings and challenges for the people left behind.

We can experience other losses too, for example, the loss of independence through illness or injury or the loss of employment, friendships, self-worth and confidence, your purpose in life, financial security or the loss of basic needs.

Grief through loss takes time, understanding and often requires support to work through. There is no magic answer and everyone experiences grief differently, but grief counselling can help you to start making sense of what has happened and work towards living with and around your grief.

For Young People

I offer counselling for young people age 14 and upwards. Growing up in the modern world can bring many challenges for young people who are navigating puberty and the physical and emotional changes this brings. This is a time where they are starting to explore . . .

Walk and talk sessions

Walk and Talk sessions – immersing ourselves in nature, connecting with our own sense of sound, smell, touch can improve mental and emotional well-being. Sometimes, we can find it difficult to open up and know how and where to start talking . . .

What is Counselling?

Counselling falls under the umbrella term ‘Talking Therapies’. As a Counsellor I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk at your own pace, discuss difficulties and challenges and explore thoughts and feelings . . .
