Working with bereaved parents
Loss of a pregnancy or a child after birth, or later, is a life changing and devastating experience. Whilst grief and the feelings associated with bereavement are often described as a process, and broken down into stages, every bereavement is an individual and deeply personal experience.
When you lose a child, or the possibility of having a child, you may feel isolated, lonely and out of step with the rest of your world- family, friends and contemporaries. In my work with bereaved parents I understand that the impact of losing a child is far reaching, and grief sometimes can be locked away for years.
Adolescence can be a challenging time; intense feelings, physical and emotional changes, lots of different pressures from school/college, friends, and family can feel overwhelming. Making sense of all of this may be impossible, and you may feel isolated, lonely and that no-one understands.
Family relationships can change during this time, and this creates its own tensions within a family.
I work both short and long term with this age group.
