Grief & Separation

Print

Separation and grief has impact on all members of the family and extended group

 

Grief is an emotion caused by loss, usually as a result of a death or separation.

It is also an emotion that is best served by being expressed.

When grief is held in, it generally prolongs the suffering and can be a cause of depression.

Talking to a therapist is likely to bring this strong emotion to the surface where it can be expressed.

This process generally needs to be repeated a number of times before it recedes into the background of our lives and becomes an integrated part of who we are.
 

Grief can cause strong feelings of isolation.

Talking to a therapist who cares is an important way to heal yourself and to feel that you belong.
