Bereavement is the grief that occurs after the passing of a friend or a loved-one. While experiencing sadness is part of the normal grieving process, sometimes a person is unable to cope with the bereavement and finds themselves unable to move on with their life. Bereavement counselling is a process where a therapist or counsellor can help you understand and move through the stages of the grieving process.
Although everyone’s experiences with bereavement are different, there are four main steps to the grieving process; accepting the loss, experiencing the pain that comes with grief,
adjusting to life without the person, managing the emotional energy that you put into grieving. A counsellor can help you make your way through these steps and work with you to ensure that you are emotionally equipped to continue on through life.
Symptoms of grief include
nausea, fatigue and weight changes.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a counselling technique that is evidence based and works well in helping people deal with bereavement. Counsellors will take the client through the grieving stages and teach CBT techniques that help the client deal with their loss.
In addition to offering face-to-face therapy, all of our CBT therapists offer
This is where you engage with your therapist either through Skype or over the phone.
