We're so glad you have taken this opportunity to read about our group bereavement therapy. Seeking help in this difficult time of your life is a healthy sign of wanting the pain to stop. We don’t want you to forget your loved ones, we want you to begin to enjoy a pro-active connection with your loved ones after their death. Being around and working with other people outside of your family and friends, you may discover you are not alone, there are other people who may feel similar to you and you may even learn that it’s ok to have fun again.
"Grief is the price we pay for loving someone”
What is grief?
Grief is a natural process that consists of a range of emotional, physiological, cognitive, and behavioural reactions that can be influenced by culture, family values or individual factors.
What are the benefits of grief therapy groups?
Group therapy has been under-used as an intervention with grieving clients. It can be very beneficial to individuals as although grief can be very personal, people may isolate themselves and judge themselves by comparing how others seem to be dealing with their loss.
What to expect from the group:
We are offering two separate therapy groups where we are looking for 10 participants in each group. One group will be for individuals aged 16-25 and one will be for individuals aged 26 and over. We are looking for people who are prepared to dedicate themselves to two hours per week for 12 weekly sessions.
