The many faces of grief.

There are many types of losses in life and everyone responds to these  uniquely.

In keeping with this there is little agreement amongst researchers about what is a “normal” length of time to feel the effects of grief.  Whilst many people manage the difficulties associated with bereavement without turning to psychotherapy, for others it can provide support at a very difficult and painful time.

Psychotherapy does not to try and “fix” people’s grief, rather it provides the time and space to process the meaning of a person’s loss which in itself can provide much needed relief.
