Grief can feel incredibly lonely, confusing, it can be difficult to talk about how you feel to the people around you.
You may feel stuck, unable to find a way to begin to build a different life without your loved one. Grief can have a ripple effect on your emotions, relationships and the wider environment around you.
Counselling can help you to unscramble some of those emotions and thoughts, allowing you the space to process what has happened. To express painful emotions which can be impacting on your health.
As a counsellor I will help you to make sense of these feelings, to listen, to understand what this is like in your world. I will provide you with tools that will help you gain some control, grounding techniques to help stabilise, and be more present instead of feeling overwhelmed with emotions from your past.
Loss isn’t just about the death of a loved one, it can be from a relationship separation, divorce, children leaving home for university. You or someone close has been diagnosed with an illness and your trying to come to terms with this.
I work from home where I aim to provide you with a relaxing atmosphere, or if you prefer, to be outdoors in the natural countryside.
Through grief relationships can become strained. It can be hard to support each other’s emotions, but having an awareness how your partner is feeling can help you to understand them.
These sessions take place on your own allowing you the freedom to speak openly
I qualified as a integrative Psychotherapist in 2008. I have worked in a Children's Hospice for a period of 18 years, being a part of this environment I could see the impact of bereavement and loss and the shear devastation the families were going through. The different range of emotions that the hospice journey has on families, whilst still trying to live through this.
I also work as a counsellor for a baby loss charity providing the much needed support when a couple have gone through the Trauma of a pregnancy loss, still birth or neonatal death, or the emotional impact that fertility can have for couples that are trying to start a family.
I have experienced my own personally losses and bereavement so I can identify some of the emotions and feeling that being conveyed in the sessions.
