Losing a loved one…


Online Bereavement Counselling


Even though we are all aware that living and dying are part of our life cycle, facing the inevitable reality of death can be an overwhelming task. We are here to provide you with support and guidance as you navigate the complexities of this experience.

Grief encompasses a wide range of emotions that arise when someone dear to you passes away. While these emotions vary from person to person, they often include:

  • Numbness: Especially when the loss is sudden, it can be difficult to comprehend that your loved one is no longer with you. You might find yourself acting as though they're still present, which is a natural response.
  • Anger: It's not uncommon to feel a sense of injustice or wrongness about the loss. Sometimes, this anger extends to the departed individual for leaving you behind.
  • Guilt: People often reflect on their interactions with the deceased and might feel regret for things unsaid or actions not taken. Some even place blame on themselves for what happened.
  • Frustration: The helplessness that comes with losing someone significant can lead to confusion and frustration, as you grapple with the reality that you can't bring them back.
  • Depression: Feeling profound sadness is a common response to the death of a loved one. It's okay to experience these emotions as part of the grieving process.
  • Tiredness: The emotional toll of grief can manifest physically, affecting sleep patterns and appetite.

Recognising that these feelings are normal and valid is the first step towards healing. Our online counselling service offers a safe and supportive environment where you can express your emotions, thoughts, and concerns without judgment. Our professional counsellors specialise in grief and loss, and they're equipped to help you navigate the unique challenges that accompany the death of a partner.

How Long Does Grief Last?

You’ll never forget the person who has died, and you might always feel sad when you think of them. But as time goes on you may remember things about them that make you happy. Things will definitely get easier.

The first year is the hardest for most people, but there’s no right or wrong length of time to grieve. You may feel better quickly – if this is the case, it doesn’t mean you loved them any less. You shouldn’t feel guilty for continuing to live your life.

Getting over grief might seem impossible at first, but it just takes time. It’s not easy, but people do cope with grief and become happy again once they’ve worked through it.

Finally, at some point you will move to a position of acceptance whereby you realise that life must go on. Whilst you may still think about the person or object that you have lost, these thoughts may become less intense and less frequent, allowing you to regain your energy and motivation.

However, reaching this final stage can take considerable time, and is a process that cannot be hurried. Talking about your feelings and the person you’ve lost with friend and family is usually a big help.  If you feel you’re stuck grieving longer than you’d like to be – or that it’s taking over your life – get some support. Our online bereavement counselling can help you through the grieving process. By helping you to deal with painful emotions, accept loss, make the relevant adjustments and develop productive and individualised coping mechanisms.
