Grief is a normal feeling that we experience as a response to loss. It is an incredibly powerful emotion, which is often accompanied by feelings of shock, anger, sadness, guilt and remorse.
While grief is most commonly associated with the loss of a loved one; we can experience grief after any form of loss, such as miscarriage, loss of a home or relationship breakdown.
Grief has the capacity to create intense physical and emotional pain. Initially, it can be overwhelming and uncontrollable. How you respond to a loss will be partially dependant on the depth of your relationship with the person or thing for which you are grieving.
Grief is a very individual experience. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and the length and intensity of your grief will be unique to you.
It is vital for you to acknowledge your grief in order to start the process of working through it. You should be assertive with others about what you need to assist you through the process.
Life Resolutions psychologists can assist you in working through the loss and towards acceptance so you can move forward with life.
Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment by registered psychologists under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. This scheme provides considerable financial assistance to people living with mental health problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental healthcare.
To access the Medicare Rebate, you need your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist.
You may be eligible to receive Medicare rebates immediately into your bank account when paying for your session by cash, credit card, EFTPOS or cheque at all Life Resolutions locations.
