Bereavement

Bereavement counselling and therapy is offered by the majority of our therapists in London. Grief is a natural process and everyone goes through it in their individual way. The signs of grief are often similar and you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Sadness
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Shock
  • Denial
  • Fear and feeling insecure

However, grief can sometimes also manifest itself in physical ways too. These include fatigue, insomnia, headaches, increased or lack of appetite and difficulties concentrating.

The death of a loved one, redundancy or moving home are all losses therapy can help with. In therapy, clients can learn to deal with painful and confusing emotions. Instead they can develop productive and individualised coping mechanisms. Therapy provides a safe space to explore feelings in a confidential and supportive environment.

Our therapists are trained to support children, adolescents and adults with their bereavement. They work with all stages of the grieving process, such as recent loss and also complicated grief some time after the loss.

In addition we have specialists who work with parents who have experienced perinatal losses.  For example, those who have suffered miscarriages. Additionally we help those who have suffered pregnancy terminations (including late stage terminations), stillbirth and neonatal losses.
