Is grieving the death of a parent or partner affecting you more than you can bear? Do you feel that others don’t understand you, or that your grief is isolating you from friends and family?
If you are grieving for a loved one, your relationship with even your closest loved ones can be affected. To be bereaved literally means to be torn apart. This experience can be frightening and lonely. Nikki and Tony can support you as you undertake the challenging journey from bereavement to healing.
While you mourn, it is normal to feel a mixture of painful emotions such as sadness, loneliness, guilt, anger, and irritability. Having a safe, caring space to work through these painful feelings decreases their intensity and makes them more manageable.
Therapy for grief helps you heal
Nikki and Tony provide a gentle, accepting, and thoughtful presence that encourages you to process painful feelings and experiences and move toward healing and growth.
Together, you will journey through the darkness towards light and hope. Nikki and Tony’s approach is warm, collaborative, creative, and tailored to how your unique experience of loss is affecting you. They will work with you to rebuild the parts of your life that felt like they shattered after your loss.
You might find that the way you cope is different from the way your spouse or siblings are coping, and that it causes tension in your relationship. While bereavement will remain an intensely personal experience, you can learn how to manage the grieving process in a way that keeps your most important family and friends close to you as you move towards healing.
In therapy, Nikki and Tony can help you see and understand how your grief is affecting you, and the relationships that are important to you. You can learn to connect with the positive elements of the person that you lost and learn to accept yourself as you move through the grief process.
