Bereavement Counselling – How does it help?

When we experience bereavement, due to the death of a loved one or another form of significant loss, every aspect of our being is touched upon. The resulting grief reaction is, at times, distressing, overwhelming and confusing.

Unfortunately, when grief does come into our lives, many of us feel unprepared and unequipped to deal with it, or lack the awareness of how to address it. We may seek the support of family and friends but their responses may not always be helpful, especially as time passes.

Bereavement counselling provides a safe space in which grief can be expressed and heard, without judgement or expectation. It is an outlet for the suffering that exists within, a chance to unburden and to find relief in sharing with an empathetic listener.

Counselling for bereavement can help to cope with a grief reaction, to make sense of it, and to help in adjusting to a loss and all the challenges this brings. Grief is a process that we work through and, hopefully, move through, a process which counselling can facilitate.

Lamenta is an online bereavement counselling service in Ireland, specifically offering support to those struggling to cope with their grief reaction. If you feel like this type of support could help you then do contact me or book a call online.

Online Counselling – What are the benefits?

Many counsellors and therapists are now working online as a result of the coronavirus and the covid-19 pandemic, thereby removing the risk of contagion and infection. There are, however, several other reasons to access online counselling therapy over more traditional forms:

Convenience - not having to travel to see your counsellor, saving time and money.

Safety - feel more secure being in your own home rather than your counsellor's office or centre.

Removes barriers - it can be easier to open up in your own space and not sitting opposite your counsellor.

Confidentiality and anonyminity - feel more comfortable speaking to a counsellor in a different area and not being seen (with telephone counselling).

Lamenta is an online counselling therapy service in Ireland that specialises in bereavement counselling by video and telephone calls. If you think this type of support could benefit you or you want to try it for yourself, you can book and pay for a call online for as soon as the following day, depending upon availability.

About Me

Hello, my name is Marcus Elliott. I have been working in psychological support services since 1990 and qualified as a counsellor in 2003, gaining professional accreditation in 2015. I also have over ten years of experience working as a telephone counsellor. In 2017 I left my employment at the time in order to pursue a career as an independent and private practitioner. My own life experiences have brought me to a place in myself where I have decided to specialise in counselling for bereavement and loss, an area which I feel is still very much misunderstood and ill-informed. I hope you will give me the opportunity to help and support you in coping with and working through your own personal grief process.
