Loss is part of life and comes in many forms;
loss of home, relationship, opportunity, health, person, pet and other such losses.
But when it confronts us, we are not always prepared for the impact.
Grief is the term to describe our experience of a loss. It tells us that things have changed.
Our normal coping strategies may seem inadequate or inappropriate to cope with the change and adjustment required, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, confused, out of control and alone.
Canberra Grief Centre specialises in the provision of services to support grief, bereavement and trauma associated with a loss.
Supporting you individually, with your partner and/or family
Care and support to grieving children and their carers
Advice and support to your school or workplace following an incident involving loss
Training and education tailored to the specific needs of your group
Assistance and advice in the development of organisational policy and procedures to support a death in a school or workplace
I can support you after a loss and during the process of losing such as that experienced by carers, following a medical diagnosis and at the end of life.
Grief can be difficult to navigate and painful but it does not need to be debilitating nor a journey you need to travel alone! It can often be helpful to have a safe supportive space in which to make sense of your experience, understand the impact of the loss and enable you to find your way in life again.
