Bereavement & Grief Counselling Leeds
When someone close to us dies, we are affected in different ways and each person finds their own way through the painful grieving process. There is no normal or right way to grieve.
It is usual to feel sadness, anger and even guilt when a person important to you dies. The physical and mental pain can be overwhelming, and frightening. You may become depressed and feel that life is not worth living.
You may respond to your bereavement by keeping busy or burying yourself in work. It may be that you believe that you need to be strong for others and there is no one there to help you. You may feel alone with your grief. You are coping and adjusting to living in a world which is totally changed.
Other people may not know what to say, can be unwilling to talk about the person who has died or are unable to cope with your feelings. This can be one of the hardest things to face.
However you are affected by your loss, grieving is a painful process and it can be hard to deal with it on your own.
