In the sad days and weeks after we lose someone special to us it’s natural to feel sad and tearful. Sometimes we need a helping hand and added support for a period of time. Our skilled clinicians are here to help and listen at difficult times like these.
What is Bereavement?
Bereavement is the period after which someone has died. During this time the individual will need begin to adjust their lives to the loss. The death of someone, especially someone with high importance to the individual, may be very hard to adjust to causing the individual high amounts of grief. Although this process is normal after the loss of a loved one sometimes the grief can be too much for an individual to cope with resulting in problems such as the individual becoming withdrawn, angry and can result in further issues such as depression.
