Loss & Bereavement
There is a natural process of grief and mourning after the loss of a loved one. The difficulties of such a sad time can be greatly helped by the support of others around one especially where they can help one realise that the feelings are normal, acceptable and understandable to others and are likely to take some time before one moves right through it.
In some cases, the time after such a loss and the healing from it becomes complicated or blocked for various reasons, such as the loss triggering memories of an earlier loss, even way back to childhood, or perhaps the death of the loved one was in traumatic circumstances, or one had a complex relationship with the person who died. There may be difficult beliefs about oneself in connection with the death. In cases such as these, psychotherapy can help to work through the difficulties.
