This course is for people that have experienced a variety of different types of loss; this may be the loss of a loved one, or the loss of stable good health or wellbeing or having to adjust to unexpected and difficult life events.  The course is designed to help you help yourself.  We hope that through coming to the course you will gain a deeper understanding of the emotional responses associated with grief and loss.  We will introduce you to some of the concepts widely accepted as the way people manage their loss and how you can use this information and the suggested techniques to improve your coping ability and to help you move forward in your life.

Courses like this provide the opportunity to recognise that others have similar as well as different emotional reactions to loss and grief, which normalises people’s experiences and can be very reassuring during difficult times.  Please do not be put off by the notion of a group experience; you will not be put under any pressure to talk about your experiences if you do not want to, it is fine just to sit and listen. 

A lot of people who attend the course are apprehensive at first, which is understandable; however previous patients have explained that by attending the course it has helped them to realise that they are not alone in their problems and that the understanding that they have gained from attending has been invaluable in helping them move forward in their lives.

If you prefer to complete treatment on your own and at a time that suits you, we offer a range of online courses that could help you to overcome your problems

This course is suitable if you are or are suffering from:

  • Low/depressed
  • Adjusting to later life
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Stress
  • Sleep problems
  • Worry/anxiety/panic

Helping me to understand what I am going through is normal, it has also helped me change the way I approach life.
