Bereavement and grief counselling in Stafford and Stone

Bereavement counselling can help if you are struggling to come to terms with the loss of a loved one. Grief is a completely human response  - it is not a weakness or a moral failing but a natural healing process to help us cope with the anger and shock of losing something very precious to us and eventually accepting that awful loss.

Those around us can sometimes fail to give us what we need in our grief - they may be scared or unwilling or simply unable to help us bear our scary or overwhelming emotions. They may wish us to 'get on with things' after a few weeks, leaving us feel even more lonely and isolated. They may say the wrong things or even avoid us.

You may benefit from bereavement counselling if you do not feel those around you are able to support you or if you are experiencing more than 6 of the following symptoms since the death of your loved one:

Significantly changed sleeping patterns

Considerable weight loss or gain

Great or regular confusion

Inability to stop crying

Inability to concentrate

Telling others you are not coping well

Unable to make decisions

Alcohol or drug use

Uncontrollable rage

Suicidal thoughts

Thoughts of harming yourself or others
