Grief and loss take many forms. One of the most significant traumas that anyone can ever experience is the death of a loved one. Yet grieving and loss may also accompany the loss of a job, a relationship or friendship, the death of a pet, or a life-altering event such as injury, fertility issues or menopause, illness, and moving house or even countries.

Grief and loss are deeply personal experiences that may be felt and expressed in different ways. In grief, it is common to feel completely alone, and that no-one can understand the depth of your pain. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. However grief affects you, counselling is a safe and supportive way to effectively process your grief, come to terms with your loss, and find ways to cope in drastically changed life circumstances.

We have just introduced a FREE service to connect you with a qualified counsellor so that you can have a 15 minute chat about how they can personally support you. Find out more about our FREE Mental Health Wellness Call service.


Grief often presents itself in unusual ways. Some common emotional responses to grief include:

  • Anger

  • Anxiety

  • Changes in appetite

  • Disrupted sleep patterns

  • Guilt

  • Loneliness

  • Mood swings/constant tearfulness

  • Numbness

  • Remorse

  • Sadness

  • Shock

These feelings, thoughts and behaviours can affect your ability to function in daily life. Grief counselling can help in the healing process, as it explores and addresses your personal needs at your own pace.

Grief counselling can help you with:

  • Working through painful memories and emotions

  • Making your grief manageable

  • Learning to enjoy life again

  • Acceptance


Real change and significant improvements don’t happen overnight. They are only seen when you work closely and consistently with a professional to: 

  • Identify patterns and behaviours that don't serve you; 

  • Help you see what you’re not seeing for yourself; and 

  • Create a plan to move forward. 

In general, to see maximum benefits, 6 to 8 counselling sessions with one of our experienced and qualified therapists is recommended. We do offer single sessions however our years of experience has shown us that clients get the best results with 6 - 8 sessions. Maintaining your mental wellbeing requires life long maintenance. We believe it is just as important as brushing your teeth or regular exercise. You don’t brush your teeth three times a year and expect to have pearly whites with no cavities do you? Our mental wellbeing is the same, one-of inconsistent support will only get you so far.

On the daily we see the life changing results regular therapy (within a set timeframe) promotes. Ezy Pay (our chosen buy now, pay later provider) is available for packaged sessions. We recently introduced this payment option to give more people the opportunity to maximise the benefits of consistent therapy and support.


Contact us via phone or email. When we hear from you, we will spend some time:

  • discussing your needs and recommending suitable counselling options; and

  • answering any questions you may have.
