Grief & Loss Counselling
Grief is an exceptionally strong emotion and is frequently accompanied by feelings like anger, sadness, shock, guilt, and remorse. It’s a natural reaction to loss, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, a home, a relationship, or an unborn child.
At first, the intense emotional and physical pain of grief can be overwhelming and seemingly uncontrollable. People’s responses to loss are partially dependent on their relationship with the lost person or thing but, as a very individual experience, everyone experiences and reacts to grief in different ways.
Coping with Grief
As we are all different individuals, there is no one right way to grieve. Your experience of grief, including its length and intensity, will be unique.
To begin the process of working through grief, you must first acknowledge it. When asking people for assistance through this difficult time, you need to be assertive and articulate in expressing your needs.
Psychological treatments are proven to help people with their issues by helping them to develop better coping skills and change negative patterns of thinking so that they can deal better with life’s conflicts and stresses.
Psychological therapies can help a person to recover and can also prevent issues from reoccurring. Psychological treatments can include Psychological Counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Inter-Personal Therapy (IPT), Behaviour Therapy, and Hypnosis.
Medicare rebates are available to those who are eligible. Rebates can be paid directly into your bank account when sessions are paid for using cash, cheque or EFTPOS.
