Counselling for Grief and Loss

We will all experience grief and loss at some point in our lives, but most of us will never be prepared for it. Grief and loss doesn’t only happen with the death of a loved one but also during the end of a relationship and in the diagnosis of a serious health problem.


What is grief counselling?

Grief counselling is a form of psychotherapy designed to help people cope with the grief and mourning following the death of a loved one. It can also help with the significant life changes that trigger feelings of grief.

Not all people need grief counselling. Each individual has their own coping mechanism that they employ to help them mourn and endure the feelings of grief until they finally move on. However, counselling is generally recommended to individuals whose grief are:


  • Interfering with daily activities;
  • Causing problems in existing relationships;
  • Causing feelings of guilt and depression; or
  • Causing problems with existing relationships.

Loss and grief may even be felt during life transitions like leaving a job, moving out of the family home or moving to a new country. Whatever you’re experiencing, we at Chettiar Counselling are here to help you.


Here’s how we can help.

Grief and loss can really take its toll on you. From losing your appetite to having difficulties sleeping, grief and loss are “felt experiences” and it’s sometimes hard to cope with the unsettling feeling that comes with it. This is where we at Chettiar Counselling can help you.

Our therapists are experienced in helping clients deal with the different stages of grief and loss. We guide you through the journey of managing your grief by giving you someone to talk to and providing you all the support you need as you cope with this difficult time in your life.

We believe that one of the best ways to deal with grief and loss effectively is by knowing how the process goes. So, we help you navigate this road and give you the space that you need to heal yourself from this grief.

If you or a loved one is going through grief and loss, get in touch with us right away to know how we can help.
