Integrative Person Centered Counsellor – BSc (hons) Psychology, Dip. Couns, Registered MBACP
Are you finding it difficult to cope with a recent loss or a death in the past?
Do you feel like a stuck record talking to your friends and family and don’t want to burden them?
Are you protecting the feelings of others by not talking about and dealing your own?
Bereavement can leave us feeling lost, alone, guilty and sometimes feeling like it is pointless to carry on living without that person.
As well as the difficult and overbearing emotions you experience, there are also practical changes to deal with such as financial, new responsibilities and decision making
It is important that we deal with the loss in order to protect our mental wellbeing and to enable us to move on with life.
How can I help?
I am a qualified counsellor with experience in working with many issues and specialising in grief and bereavement. I can be someone to talk to about the loss and all the emotional and practical changes that you will/have experienced after the death of a loved one.
Speaking to a counsellor takes away the burden you may feel you are putting on those around you and allows you to speak freely about your thoughts and feelings without judgement.
Counselling can simply be a place to just off load to an open, honest and non-judgemental party. In this very fast paced society it is sometimes difficult to make the time to look after ourselves and work through our worries and problems however big or small. Often, we feel like we don’t want to put the burden of our worries and problems onto family and friends and sometimes they can’t give us the time and attention we may need. Talking to someone that is removed from your situation can provide a new and often different perspective, something that can be a really helpful and highly effective way to lessen the burden you carry around with you on a day to day basis.
