Bereavement can affect people in a range of different ways. There’s no right or wrong way to feel when you have lost a loved one.

A therapist can help you to explore your feelings and come to terms with your grief and loss.

In this short film, our member Paula Fowle explains how she supports people who are bereaved so they can move forward with their lives.

She talks about the different stages of the process of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

She highlights how bereavement counsellors offer clients a safe, non-judgmental space where they can offload their feelings.

And she explains how she gives people ideas for things they can do to help them cope with what they are going through.
