Experiencing death is unique to each person and the process for that person is also unique. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved person.
Grief may also bring physical affects such as sleep disturbances, memory loss and weight loss.
Grief can become complicated when after sometime the person is struggling to deal with their feelings of loss and grief.
Bereavement counselling enables the person to express their feelings and thoughts or sit quietly with someone without any requirements or expectations.
Talking can help find a way to live without the physical presence of the deceased, provide comfort, support and facilitate mourning.
I trained as a Bereavement Counsellor with Cruse Bereavement but more importantly I have experienced different types of grief. I understand how it feels and how our experiences can be so different from one another.
Grief can completely derail a person and it can feel as if life has lost all meaning.
For me it helped having someone completely impartial sitting beside me not judging me, giving me empathy and support in my time of need.
