Grief & Loss Counselling

Helping You Heal From Your Loss

The feelings of grief and loss occur after someone has passed away or for another reason.

When feelings of grief and loss occur, you may start to feel intense sadness, bouts of crying, anxiety or guilt.

Grief and loss is a normal part of life. You don’t have to live with your grief forever.

There are ways to help you get through this difficult time in your life. Waking up and feeling the way you do each day, isn’t the only option.

Common Signs That You’re Still Grieving Over Someone

  • Sudden onset of crying when you think or talk about the loss you’ve experienced.
  • Continuous headaches from prolonged stress.
  • A loss of appetite.
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping of a night.
  • The feelings of aches, pains, body heaviness, fatigue or weakness.
  • A feeling of yearning and sadness that won’t go away.
  • Feelings of guilt, frustration, anger, anxiety or constant worry.

Your Approach to Getting Better

The onset of crying, a loss of appetite and insomnia are all very common and normal symptoms of the grieving process.

However, if you’ve been feeling like this, years after the event occurred, then it’s time to get professional support. You don’t have to feel like this anymore, there is hope.

You can overcome your prolonged grief and feelings of loss if you’re ready to make the change.

The first step to helping you overcome your grief is understanding that it’s ok to cry over someone you love.

The next step is understanding that it’s not your fault and that you won’t be abandoning their memory if you move past the grief.

The third step is getting the professional help you need from a registered psychologist specialising in this area. Grief counselling can help to heal open emotional wounds that may of never been closed.

How Can Grief Start?

The feelings of grief and loss can occur or be triggered by a number of different life changing events. Some of these include, but aren’t limited to:

  • When someone you love passes on unexpectedly or overtime with a terminal illness.
  • A loss of an unborn baby as a result of miscarriage.
  • When you lose a favourite pet that you’ve loved for a long time.
  • The loss of your children when they leave home for the first time.
  • The loss of a job when you’re fired or retire when you didn’t want to.
