Sadness, Depression & Bereavement

Sadness, depression, bereavement, loss, divorce, separation, adoption & boarding school issues are all painful to experience and painful to mourn.All of us probably suffer from depression at some points in our lives.

Psychotherapy, counselling & psychology provide methods of helping people to process sadness and move forward in their lives.

The main tools we can use in trying to work with sadness are:

Researching, recognizing and getting a better map of the history and content of the sadness.

Mourning for the losses entailed in the sadness. This might be a death, a divorce, a childhood trauma or deficit in care, retirement or any other loss which requires a process of honestly recognizing and feelingly processing the loss.

Where possible and to the extent possible, moving on and finding a new life and continuing to repair inner injuries.
