Grief & Loss

Feelings of grief are a normal response to loss and usually resolve with the passage of time. Reactions to grief differ from person to person as expressions of grief are influenced by cultural background, gender, beliefs and personality. However at times for children, teens or adults the grieving process is more intense or becomes stuck. In such cases ongoing sadness, aloneness and yearning, guilt or anger, sleep disturbance or loss of interest in previously pleasurable activities significantly impact on one’s life. Sometimes the death of a loved one can shatter our structure of meaning and leave us feeling particularly bereft. However one needs to journey through such intense loss and grief so you can resume living your own life again with joy. Professional guidance and support can be helpful on this journey.
