"It is so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone." - John Steinbeck
The loss of someone or something we love can have a devastating effect. Grief can affect all aspects of life in ways that is often hard for others to understand, and many people find themselves isolated and alienated in and because of their experience of grief.
Counselling offers a place where your feelings and experience of grief will be accepted as they are for as long as you need them to be, without the need to mask or curtail them. Paradoxically, having this safe place where you do not need to hide your grief may ultimately bring you back to yourself (maybe a changed self) and to your life as it now is - in your own time.
If you are experiencing grief, you may feel uncommonly tired, tearful and your appetite may have lessened. Exhaustion and confusion. Distraction. Feeling like going crazy. World becomes dreamlike
