Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period - everyone must learn to cope in their own way. Grief, although normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways. Some people get angry, some people withdraw further into themselves and some people become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious - like depression. The people we normally lean on for support may be grieving alongside so it can be helpful to be able to talk to someone neutral who is trained in bereavement support. Through my work with Cruse Bereavement Care I have extensive experience of working with bereaved people both adults and children.
