Loss and bereavement

Dealing with a life changing loss, whether it’s bereavement, becoming unemployed, the end of a relationship or anything else, can be one of the toughest things to do in life. While we all have our own ways of coping, sometimes it can be a real struggle to overcome all of the grief associated with loss. If you think you need support to cope with a recent loss, help is at hand.

Is loss affecting me more than usual?

Loss affects everyone differently and we all have personal ways of coping – some may seem barely affected whilst other people can take weeks or months to recover. Usually the more significant the loss, the more severe the grief. But even the smallest losses can lead to intense grief.

If you feel loss and grief are starting to have an extended and severe impact on your day-to-day life, you may wish to look at treatments or therapies to help you cope better.

What can cause severe feelings of loss?

Grief is the natural response to loss. It can be brought on when anything you love or care about is removed from your life. Most people will experience severe grief as a response to the death of a loved one, but there are a variety of other reasons that may cause you to experience a severe feeling of loss, such as:

  • Divorce or the end of a relationship
  • Losing a job or retirement
  • Loss of financial security
  • The death of a pet
  • Loss of health
  • Loss of a dream
  • Moving home

How can therapy help me overcome loss?

Therapy For You can offer you a range of interventions to help manage this type of problem. Our Psychoeducational course offers a treatment that helps you to learn more about your feelings, explore different methods of coping with grief and ultimately help you to overcome loss.

The empathy from others in the group was really helpful. I enjoyed having others in the group to support me.
