YOUTH COUNSELLING & SUPPORT - LOSS & GRIEF

Loss of a loved one and the grief that comes with it can be overwhelming at time. There are several stages in the grief cycle and each of these stages bring with it their own challenges, feelings, emotions and behaviour.

At the age of 18, a few weeks before I was to sit my HSC exams, on my Graduation day, my Father passed away. He was only 45, and as far as we knew, he was fighting fit. The shock, feeling of loss, confusion, anger and overall grief which followed was something I'd never experienced before, and had little idea on how to process. 

Nearly three decades on, I now use this personal experience, together with my professional skills to help young people deal with loss and grief which they are facing. Often it helps to speak to someone who knows what they've been through, who can understand what is causing the behaviour which may seem strange to others, and to find the hope in a future, albeit a different one to what was originally planned. 

Although losing a family member or friend can be traumatic experience, with care and support it can be a whole lot less distressing.

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away
"
Revelation 21:4
