Counselling for Grief and Bereavement

  • Edit

At some point in our lives we will all experience loss and grief, and sometimes we need a little extra help and space to cope with that loss. Losing someone important to you, such as a spouse, parent, child, or a close friend can leave you feeling empty inside, as if you are living under a grey cloud that just won’t budge.

Many people experience bereavement as a sense of loneliness, and may feel as though they don’t want to upset or burden their friends, family, and colleagues by talking about how they are feeling. However, when you’ve experienced the loss of a close friend or relative, one of the best ways to work through your grief is to talk about how you’re feeling.

When grief goes unmanaged for too long, it can lead to a number of psychological and physiological symptoms, which can have a detrimental effect on your wellbeing:

  • Irritability and impatience
  • Detachment and loss of interest in activities
  • Preoccupation with your loss and the inability to concentrate
  • Numbness and the inability to express or experience joy
  • Digestive problems, overeating, or loss of appetite
  • Physical and mental fatigue and aching muscles
  • Chest pain and headaches

How can we help you?

If you have recently lost a loved one, or have gone through a break-up, and are struggling to readjust to life without them, we can help. At The Worsley Centre we offer professional counselling and psychotherapy for grief and bereavement. It can be difficult to open up and speak about your grief to those who are close to you; our therapists are here to provide you with a safe and confidential space in which to talk about your feelings, whatever those feelings may be.

Each of our therapists is professionally trained and qualified to listen to you in a patient, empathetic, and non-judgemental way, providing you with the opportunity to express and explore your painful feelings and thoughts. We offer guidance to aid you in coping with, and overcoming, your grief; and your therapist won’t push you to do or say anything that you’re not comfortable with.
