Having previously worked within the NHS as a bereavement counsellor, I have seen how grief can leave people feeling confused, overwhelmed, lonely and isolated. In addition to this, you may be feeling guilt or shame in the aftermath of a bereavement, and may feel you need to make sense of this. Bereavement can sometimes lead to problems within families which can make the grief even harder to deal with. Each person has a highly individual experience of grief, there is no right or wrong way to do it, we all grieve differently. It can be an extremely intense and chaotic time, therefore the space to process and make sense of your loss can be cathartic.
Bereavement can be a complex experience. Often the passing of someone significant can reignite painful feelings or memories around the death of a previous loved one. You could therefore find it helpful to examine your feelings around this confusing time.
