Bereavement - One of the most painful and challenging experiences of life is the loss of someone you love and care about. Death is a harsh but inevitable part of life but it can leave those left behind feeling hopeless, powerless, angry, shocked, guilty, depressed, lonely or sometimes feeling nothing at all.
There is no right way to grieve but if the loss of a someone is affecting your ability to function then you may well benefit from coming to talk to a Psychotherapist here at East London Mental Health about how you feel.
Some examples of situations provoking grief/loss like feelings:
Feelings at the death of someone
Long-term illness or certain medical conditions
Change in mental or physical capacity
Acts of terrorism, violence or war (experienced or viewed)
Suicidal attempts and/or self harm
