How can counselling help
Support That Makes a Difference
Together we will work through the stages of grief. There is no right or wrong way to grief. There is no time limit to the journey. I'll be led by you and we'll go at your pace. There is no limit to hear your story over and over again as very often it's the repetition and making sense of the loss that helps the grieving process. Grief can trigger further unexpected emotions and feelings and I'll be beside you to help you to manage them.
My aim as a therapist is to guide you through what at times can be a difficult journey, offering you an accepting space to explore whatever brought you to counselling.
As a result of any loss you might have started to feel more anxious and this can cause you to feel trapped and frightened to face the world. Being depressed can cause you to lose interest in the things you used to enjoy. You might feel afraid that people will see you as a failure. You might constantly feel guilty or have a feeling that you are letting everyone down.
The therapeutic relationship offers connection which means it helps you to reconnect with yourself and regain meaning and purpose in life.
I understand how difficult it is to entrust your most inner despair to anyone. Finding the right therapist can prove to be a challenging task. All initial enquiries are very welcome.
