Grief & loss counselling Belmont, Geelong

Many people seek therapy to deal with grief and loss. Grieving is a process that can come from any form of loss, for example losing an important friendship, a job that you loved, a home that you lived in your whole life, or even losing your autonomy or sense of identity as a result of injury. Losing a loved one is one of the most traumatic and painful experiences of loss. Grief is a very personal experience and can affect people very differently. There are some common emotional responses to grief:

  • Shock
  • Guilt
  • Anger or irritability
  • Deep sadness and mood swings
  • Feeling helpless or numb
  • Feeling disconnected
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of motivation
  • Poor concentration or forgetfulness
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Loneliness

Sometimes after a loss these emotions feel overwhelming and it is difficult to function normally. It can help with the healing process to explore and work through your feelings with a supportive and empathic therapist who understands the grieving process.

Grief counselling can help with:

  • Processing painful thoughts, feelings and memories associated with the loss
  • Finding ways to manage feelings associated with grief
  • Accepting and moving forward with your life
  • Finding joy in your life again
