Loss and Grief

Grief is something that happens as the result of losing something or someone that is important to us.  However, it affects everyone so differently and is highly dependent on the situations, the type of relationship, upbringing, culture and any other individual differences.

Loss can leave us feeling numb, sad, angry, desperate, or even left behind, but all of these feelings are a natural part of the grieving and each have their own place in the process.

Coping with loss and grief

There are a few things you can do to help yourself during this difficult time including:

  • express yourself
  • give yourself time to feel
  • keep to a routine
  • sleep
  • eat healthily
  • avoid numbing substances such as drugs and alcohol
  • seek professional counselling
