At times it may seem like nothing you say or do can help you to feel better about yourself. Losing a loved one is a very traumatic and lonely experience, even when a death is expected. Others might want you to have re-adjusted by now and got over your loss; however bereavement can have long-lasting effects.
We are all unique and grieve in different ways. Bereavement counselling can help ease the pain of grief and give you the opportunity to talk about your feelings in a safe and supportive environment.
Why I can help
I have over 20 years of experience helping both men and women cope with the grief of losing their loved ones. I also worked as a counsellor with Victim Support in London for many years helping families and friends who have lost loved ones through homicide.
Person centred counselling
My method of counselling is primarily “person-centred”. This approach, developed by psychologist Carl Rogers, focuses on the idea that every individual has the internal resources they need for growth.
This approach is particularly helpful for those who wish to explore themselves and their feelings and who value personal responsibility, rather than those who would like extensive advice or wish to gain a diagnosis of what they are experiencing. I do not work from a script or have a set of questions to ask, you choose what you wish to talk about and I work with whatever you bring to the conversation and at your own pace.
If you would like further information, I offer an initial telephone consultation completely free of charge to help you and I decide if I am the right counsellor for you. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
If you decide to have counselling you can book an initial session. At this appointment you will have an opportunity to decide whether or not you feel comfortable talking to me, whether we can both work together, and if counselling is right for you at this time. You will be under no obligation to pursue counselling. Deciding who to work with is extremely important, so you may want to meet a few prospective counsellors before making a decision.
FEES: £60.00 Per 50 minute session
