Grief counselling

Grief and Loss


Grief is a normal, human response to the loss of something that is special to us. It is also one of the worst things a human can experience. 

It can be a person, but it also might be a pet, a relationship, our family home, a job, our health, or even the changes in living arrangements when children grow up and move out.

Wherever there is loss, there is grief.

When we first experience loss, the grief seems overwhelming and we wonder if we will ever get through it. Fortunately, we a hard-wired to move through grief. But sometimes it takes a little assistance to get there. After a loss, we may experience a range of intense feelings, such as sadness, anger, anxiety, disbelief, panic, relief, irritability or numbness. Grief can also affect our thinking. We may think we will never get over this, or that we are going crazy. Sometimes grief can also cause difficulty in sleeping and physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, aches and pains.

With experience in both palliative care and as a funeral celebrant, Matt has a unique experience working with grief, helping you come to terms with your loss, and getting used to the ‘new normal’. He has worked with hundreds of families and individuals, providing support in the darkest of times, recognising that everybody’s experience of grief is unique.
