 the death of, or separation from, a partner

losing a parent to death or separation from conflict

About Grief & Loss
When we lose something or someone that is important to us, we grieve.
This journey can be very painful as we struggle to come to terms with this empty space, with the change to the landscape of our lives.
A loved one leaves us - either from death or because either you don't want to be there anymore or because they do not. 
A loved one hurts us and we suffer the pain of losing trust, losing hope and being confused and troubled - this is also a form of grief.
Grief takes away our momentum, our motivation, our desires and sometimes our reason.
We lose a job and the income it gives us and we are confronted with the loss of routine, our status, perhaps our confidence or the security we have earned.
This too is when we may grieve.
Age may take away our energy, our mobility, sight or vision...and our independence!
This can be very difficult and confronting as we grieve the loss of what we once knew.
There are so many forms of loss and so many ways we grieve - depending on the emotional attachment to that loss, our resilience or the triggers from other life events that this loss causes.
We may have the support of family to help us get through these times - or they may not be able to help as the are also grieving and affected by the loss.
Friends can be a great source of support - but they may also not be in a position to help or unable to understand your grief.
Grief Loss Online Counselling or Face to Face Counselling can be a great experience in understanding and managing hour grief.

What is Grief?

Grief is a multifaceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something that has died, to which a bond or affection was formed. Although conventionally focused on the emotional response to loss, it also has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, cultural, spiritual and philosophical dimensions

My love

I hear you in the soft patter

Of the raindrops on the window on a

Wet and windy Winter’s night

I see you briefly in the misty light of a

Clear and frosty morning

I feel you in the rush of water

Flowing over my skin as I shower

Away the toil of the day

I catch your scent as I brush past

A hedge of lavender on my morning walk

And then, just once

The taste of blueberries and fresh cream

Reminds me of your laughter

And my heart is touched by your love


And always

"It takes strength to make your way through grief, to grab hold of life and let it pull you forward"
