Support with Bereavement

Bereavement affects people in diverse ways and there is no right or wrong way to feel. You may feel shocked or numb on learning of a bereavement. You may feel angry or feel some guilt or you may simply cry and feel sad.  In time these feelings may begin to change as you adapt to a different way of life. When someone dies, your bond with that person does not stop, but will develop into a different but equally significant relationship (a continuing bond).

In a society and culture where were don’t speak openly about grief, many of us don’t fully appreciate the psychological and physical feelings that we may experience.  This may they also lead us to worry about whether these feelings are “normal” – we could encourage you to watch this Marie Curie video, where some people share their personal experiences.

You may or may not want support with bereavement; everyone is different, and some people wish to grieve privately whereas others may find it helpful to get support from friends, family or professionals who have relevant skills and experience.  We warmly invite you to join our peer bereavement support group, if you think that might be helpful.

If you feel that you may benefit from some additional support, your GP may be able to refer you to local support groups or counselling services and if you are employed, your company may offer an “Employee Assistance Program” which may be able to offer you support.

Grief Podcasts

There are many resources available to support people with grief, loss and bereavement.  If you are aware of what is available, then you are more likely to find something that is helpful for you.  Many of us now enjoy audiobooks and podcasts, especially as we travel or need to give our eyes a break from reading and screens

In addition to the Full Circle podcast there are many other grief podcasts available, and we have listed a few for you to consider.  You may find that some resonate more with you than others so you might like to try a few different ones before deciding which one you find most helpful.
