Bereavement Counselling in Swindon
Bereavement is a universal experience. We all lose family members, partners or friends at some stage in our lives. Other events like divorce or a child leaving home can give rise to very similar feelings.

One day, you may feel you are coming to terms with the loss. The next, you may be right back to where you started. You may feel you are going round and round in a whirlpool of grief and wonder how you will ever get out of it.

How can counselling help?
When you experience such a confusing welter of emotions, it can be very helpful to talk to someone who really wants to understand you and who will listen without judging you. You may be frightened of your own feelings and being with someone who says its OK and normal to feel that way can help you accept what is going on inside you.
