Bereavement and Traumatic Grief Counselling
Grief and Bereavement is a response to loss, particularly involving death. This type of emotional response can also affect us physically and socially. These feelings may be overwhelming but are completely normal if you have just experienced the loss of a loved one.

A bereavement and traumatic grief counselling case study
Patricia, a single mother on low income and a part-time employee in a local shop, had recently experienced the traumatic grief of her father’s death. She was struggling to face work because of the immense pressure she felt with now having to support and care for her elderly mother as well as her two young children.
Patricia had no one she felt she could talk to about the loss of her father. The thought of caring for two young children and her mother both financially and emotionally were overwhelming and Patricia began to feel she was sinking.
During our sessions, I encouraged her to talk about how she was feeling about the death of her father. I provided practical advice on allowances that Patricia would be entitled to, along with details of local care centres that could help her and her mother.
I appreciated the flexible approach to therapy which was tailored to my needs. Richard was good at remembering what I had said in previous sessions. I found his questions intelligent and thought-provoking!
I found the whole experience incredibly useful and I feel I’ve moved on massively in a relatively short space of time. I feel like a different person to how I felt when I walked into therapy! The main thing for me was being equipped with the tools to deal with anxiety and realise that I can deal with it! I would thoroughly recommend it.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I really feel like I’m getting better and starting to become the person who I really am.
