Bereavement Counselling in Derby

My Solution Wellbeing offer counselling and treatment for bereavement or loss. We have a dedicated team based in Derby and our counsellors are trained in Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) , Person centred counselling , Motivational Interviewing Therapy and Mindfulness practice.

If you have experienced the death of someone who was very important to you, you might be finding it very difficult to adjust to the immense changes happening in your life right now. Grief can shake everything up – your beliefs, your personality, and even your sense of reality.

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.

Bereavement counselling with My Solution Wellbeing may be able to provide support during these very difficult times. Talking about the loss often allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes – good and bad. Keeping things bottled up or denying the sadness could prolong the pain. Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward. Bereavement counselling with My Solution Wellbeing tries to help clients find a place for their loss so they can carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.

Grief is the agony you feel inside when you realise that you have lost somebody. Grief is complex. It comes in a million different forms – some people cry for days, weeks, months. Some people get angry and lash out, other people withdraw from the world and grieve in their own private way.

Different emotions associated with grief include:

  • Sorrow
  • Longing (to see them again)
  • Guilt
  • Numbness
  • Anger
  • Hopelessness
  • Loneliness
  • Despair

What you feel after a person has died will depend on the relationship you had with that person and the nature of their death. Of course, there is no telling what form your grief will take, and everyone’s experience is unique.

As painful as it feels, it is important to let yourself grieve for your loss. Some people lock their emotions inside and try to get on with life as usual. Denying yourself the time to grieve properly could result in complications that prevent you from getting on with life.

Bereavement counselling with My Solution Wellbeing is designed to help people cope more effectively with the death of a loved one.

Specifically, bereavement counselling can:

  • Offer an understanding of the mourning process
  • Explore areas that could potentially prevent you from moving on
  • Help resolve areas of conflict still remaining
  • Help you to adjust to a new sense of self
  • Address possible issues of depression or suicidal thoughts

You will probably never stop missing the person you lost, but with enough time and the right support, a new life can be pieced together and purpose can be reclaimed.

Bereavement counselling with My Solution Wellbeing aims to get you to the point where you can function normally – however long it takes. One day, you may be able to find happiness again. By creating a place to keep the person you lost, and finding ways to remember them (like anniversary celebrations, or leaving flowers at a memorial site), you should be able to preserve their memory and honour the impact they had on your life, without letting their absence obscure your own future.

My Solution Wellbeing counselling team is based near the Derby city centre. My Solution Wellbeing can help you with your First Step to Change.

Person centred therapy or client centred counselling as it is also known, is a humanistic approach to grief counselling, which focuses on the ways that individuals perceive themselves consciously, rather than how the counsellor can interpret unconscious thoughts and ideas.

Motivational Interviewing Therapy

This counselling method is used to help people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities, this helps the individual to change their behaviour and thoughts. This process is practical and empathetic, and takes into consideration how difficult losing a loved one can be.

This combines CBT with meditative practices to help people who are suffering with chronic unhappiness. Helping to reduce levels of stress and anxiety.
