The aim of this page is to give you a small insight into possible feelings and symptoms that you may experience as a result of a loss and/or bereavement and for you to know you need not suffer alone.


Bereavement and Loss


The loss or death of someone close can be a shock and temporarily shatter your world. Many factors can affect your mourning and grieving process such as age, who the person was to you, how attached you were to them (or not) or religious beliefs. If a death is involved, the way the person died can have a huge effect on your grieving process. Please know there is no 'right' or 'normal' way to experience grief and your experience is absolutely right for you.

Feelings of loss can include :-

Sadness
Anger
Guilt
Anxiety
Loneliness
Fatigue
Numbness
Helplessness
Shock
Yearning / pining
Emancipation (feeling set free)
Relief.

Physical symptoms of loss can include :-

Hollowness in stomach
Tightness in chest / throat
Oversensitivity to noise
A sense of depersonalisation ('I walk down the street and nothing seems real, including me').
Breathlessness
Weakness in muscles
Lack of memory
Hallucinations
Dry mouth.

There can be a sense of denial....you know the person is not in your life anymore, or has died, yet you find it impossible to accept you will never see, touch or hear their voice again which can be extremely hard to come to terms with.


Although grief is a universal natural reaction to loss it can be stressful and painful. Counselling provides a space for you to talk freely about what is happening for you without being judged or 'moved on' with no expection for you to quickly 'get over it'. I offer you space to connect and process your feelings as I walk beside you in your journey.
