Bereavement is an individual process that is as unique as the relationship that you have had with the person that has died. Grief can take many forms and be expressed in various ways. It is not unusual to withdraw from people slightly and not feel like talking in your usual manner, just as it is not unusual for you to want to talk more than you thought you would about what has happened. Everyone is different, and your own response to loss will depend on your own personal circumstances. Physical and emotional responses to grief can at times feel confusing, overwhelming or isolating. We know that grief does not fit between office hours, and the companion of the internet can be a useful support when others are not available. Alex, Tania and their small team of counsellors are also available for e-support, so if you would like to email us, or to tell us your story, please do. We will reply to you as soon as we are able.
No matter how supportive or informative we aspire to be, there is never a substitute for face to face human contact. Always speak to your GP if you are concerned about yourself. Here in the UK the Samaritans are also available to talk to 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Samaritans: (24/7 listening support service) http://www.samaritans.org/ 08457 90 90 90
