Bereavement Counselling London

What is Bereavement?

When we experience bereavement we are coping with grief and loss. It is normal to feel sadness and even anger or guilt, as we have lost someone or something close to us. The natural grief stages include fear, loneliness, sadness, denial, anger and letting go. While painful, the grieving process enables us to come to terms with the loss. Many people find it hard to deal with grief and try to manage by keeping things bottled up, or denying the sadness. However, this can prolong the pain and lead to long term difficulties which affect your relationships and work and can even lead to depression.

How Can Counselling Help?

Bereavement Counselling can help you through the grieving process. Many people find it helpful to talk about their grief and loss in a confidential safe space. Whilst those around you may mean well, people often find they don’t fully understand or it is just too difficult to talk to family or friends about what you are going through. Our bereavement counsellors provide the support you need to process the painful emotions, manage the loss, adjust to your new life and make relevant changes to help you cope and move forward.

Understanding the Stages of Grieving Following a Bereavement

There are recognised stages of grieving which we all go through when dealing with bereavement. However, as we all manage grief symptoms differently. You may experience some or all grief stages as you go through the bereavement process.

The initial response to bereavement is often one or shock or disbelief even if the loss is expected. Sometimes denial can follow if it is feels very difficult to accept the reality of the loss. Many people will feel anger over their loss, which may feel unjust, untimely and unfair. Guilt can be experienced as many people reflect and imagine, maybe there was something they could have done, or done better that might have changed things. Feelings of fear, sadness and loneliness which are normal responses may develop into depression as it becomes difficult to ease the pain of the loss.

Then symptom, such as sleeplessness, low mood, irritability, loss of motivation, social withdrawal, changes in appetite and physical pains may occur. In the final stages of bereavement we reach the position of acceptance. This is when we have come to a point where we are able to accept what has happened, the pain of the loss is manageable and we feel able to continue moving forward with our life.
