Loss is an integral part of our lives. We all experience loss and traumatic circumstances at some point in our lives. Loss refers to being deprived of a highly valued person or object. What we value and how we value, depends on the individual. However, the experience of loss is universal and is shaped and modified by cultural and ethnic factors. An individual can experience loss of a job, pet, relationship, skill or an ability, piece of art, furniture, house, a valued external object, part of one's self, etc. Loss invariably causes pain and suffering to an individual. Grieving for the loss is a natural human reaction. Grief refers to how the individual experiences the psychological, behavioural, physical and social recations to the perception of the loss. Grief reponses may involve depression, deep sadness, crying, guilt, anger, anxiety, confusion, fear, disorientation, social withdrawl, etc. Grief can become a challenging issue for most of us. However, a counsellor can help you to deal with the grief process whether it be due to loss of a loved one, separation, job loss or retirement. Please contact us to find out how we can help you to cope with the grieving process.
