Bereavement

Bereavement is a natural process and everyone goes through grief 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.

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 loses 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.

Dr Langhoff also specialises in working with parents who have experienced perinatal losses.  For example, she can work with those who have suffered miscarriages. Additionally she can help those who have suffered pregnancy terminations (including late stage terminations), stillbirth and neonatal losses.
