Bereavement and Loss

Everyone experiences bereavement or a loss at some stage in his or her life, whether it is the death of a loved one, a friend or pet. The experience often means that our lives will never be the same again. Sometimes the feelings of despair, loneliness or even guilt may overwhelm us, so much so that we need help and in time, with the right support, you can work through your feelings and learn to live with your loss. Dealing with grief and loss is something most people have to do sometime in their lives. Grief is a natural response to the loss of someone or something very dear to us. Losses that may lead to grief include the death or separation of a loved one, loss of a job, death or loss of a beloved pet, or any number of other changes in life such as divorce, retirement, losing part of your body through an operation or accident. Anyone can experience grief and loss; each person is unique in how he or she copes with these feelings. The stages of grief reflect a variety of reactions that may surface as an individual tries to make sense of how a loss affects him or her.  An important part of the healing process is allowing and accepting your feelings and the whole experience.
