Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period – everyone must learn to cope in their own way. Grief, although normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways.

The death of someone close to you can be emotionally devastating. You might find you experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms as you come to terms with your loss.

  • Panic attacks
  • Anger
  • Suicidal feelings
  • Anxiety
  • Loneliness
  • Sleep problems
  • Depression
  • Stress

How can we help?

You will probably never stop missing the person you lost, but with enough time and the right support, a new life can be pieced together and purpose can be reclaimed. Bereavement counselling aims to get you to the point where you can function normally

If you’re unable to move through your grief, or are concerned about the welfare of someone who isn’t coping well, seek help, or encourage them to seek help.
