Grief and Loss

Grief counselling involves your grief, our couch – a place to just ‘be’

Experiencing a deep loss can be heartbreaking and a challenge. You are not alone and it is perfectly ok to seek grief counselling during this time. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss where you can feel a deep sense of loneliness, sadness or anger and despair.
Grief is a natural human experience. You might be feeling numb, sad, angry or shocked. Everyone experiences grief in their own way and dealing with these emotions does not make you a weak person.

Should I be experiencing grief?

Grief is expressed by everyone differently. Your background, beliefs and relationships all play a part in how you express and deal with your emotions and loss. Some people deal with grief emotionally while others prefer a distraction by focusing on work, routine or tasks. You may feel many ups and downs during the grief process. There is no set timeframe for how long you will experience grief. The reason for grief counselling is to help you function so you are not limited in your habits, decisions, relationships and personal growth.

How will grief counselling help me?

When experiencing grief, it is important to seek a compassionate and experienced psychologist. At A resolution, we consider grief counselling a humbling experience. We work with you to help you process your loss and help you to focus on taking care of yourself and building your social support networks. Our goal with grief counselling is to alleviate some of the most challenging aspects of grief. In the absence of someone you love you might be faced with new routines, a new sense of identity and visualise a new future. With this comes new emotions and grief counselling can support you on this journey so you can settle more comfortably into this new way of life.
Grief counselling is designed to help you with the following:

  • Getting through the day
  • Working through painful memories and emotions
  • Processing numbness, sadness, anger or anxiety
  • Focusing on the positives
  • Learning to enjoy life without guilt

Grief Counselling can involve just you or other members of your family.
