Bereavement, Loss and separation

Grief can be described as the emotional response to the loss of a loved one and is often not just sadness as it often involves a progression of different emotions and reactions that include shock and/or numbness, anxiety, anger and sadness. It may take days, weeks, months or even years for someone who is grieving to cycle through several different emotions.

There is no set itinerary or time limit on bereavement, loss or separation, however if there is a lack of emotional response or an emotional response so overwhelming that it begins to affect a personís employment, education or personal relationships, then it may be best to seek therapy. It is important to understand that recognising some help is required, is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength to seek that help and support when it is needed and understand that everyone who has to face bereavement, loss or separation will all have their own unique way of dealing with grief.
