Losing a loved one can be enormously distressing, confusing and complex. Bereavement therapy isn’t engaged in within the first six months as you need to grieve and let your brain naturally process. There may be complicating factors that make it more complex, for instance, the age of the person, the way they died, unspoken words and the type of relationship that you had. If you’re feeling stuck and need a little help, therapy can help you.
On saying that, loss doesn’t only include losing a loved one. Loss comes in many forms – losing a job, loss of physical ability, loss of a future dream that can no longer happen, changes in life stages. Therapy can help you become unstuck by exploring your thoughts and feelings around your loss.
