Grief and Loss Banner

Losing someone close to us is what we often think of when dealing with grief.

However, life situations such as the loss of a job and professional identity, relationship breakdown or the loss of a pet can all lead to grief. We can grieve over so many different things in life. It is part of being human.

Grief is a process and it takes time to work through. However, given the intensity of the emotion and its wave-like effect, many people may prefer to push it away and turn their attention outwards as a form of distraction. Because let’s face it: grief hurts and is extremely painful. However, if grief is not processed and moved through fully, it can show up in other ways that can negatively impact your health and wellbeing.

There is no set timetable for grieving and it is not a linear process. There are a number of stages that can be experienced differently and in various ways by individuals. It can take weeks, months or even years to move through grief, and even then, certain events, milestones or experiences can trigger the grief to return again.

Working together, I can help you to identify where you’re at in the grieving process to understand the ‘why’ behind what you’re feeling. I will hold space for you to express how you feel; to give yourself permission to grieve, and to open up to the range of feelings and experiences associated. Support and professional help can help you cope with the grief, and my role at Kokoro Psychology & Health is to do just that.
