There is nothing more certain; in that we all have or are going to be faced with bereavement.
Whether it's the loss of someone, something, a role, job, health, expectations, hope, a pet and so the list goes on.
For me that is where the similarities end. It is a individual and unique experience and not always a sad or happy one.
Feelings and thoughts could include relief, Grief, shame, blame, anger, purpose, emptiness, loss, Loneliness, worthlessness, frightened, scared, Why, senlessness, I should have, I ought to have, and once again the list goes on and is individual to you.
If you feel that it would help to have these thoughts and feelings valued, respected listened to then please contact me. Kevin Powell a Counsellor in Northampton

Anger to me is a natural emotion made up of feelings that are unique to you. The danger is what happens when we are angry, to ourselves and others.
Depression can have an impact on all aspects of you, physically, mentally and emotionally.
