Bereavement and grief

It is only natural that a death should cause profound grief and a deep sense of loss.

This can be overwhelming at the time of death, but often the imperatives of organising a funeral – and the comfort of friends and relatives – can carry the bereaved through the immediate aftermath of a death. Several weeks or months later, when others have returned to their own lives and preoccupations, the sense of loss can seem even more profound.

There are a number of organisations, as well as individuals, who can help the bereaved to cope with their loss. They include the well-established charity Cruse Bereavement Care.

If you are looking for a bereavement counsellor, the Counselling Directory should be able to help.
