Loss is the feeling of missing something/someone that was once a significant part of your life but is no longer available or present.
Loss comes in many different forms, some examples:
When we go through these kinds of losses some of the emotions we go through may be very similar to bereavement and grief, the main difference is that a bereavement is following the death of a loved one.
Loss can feel similar to grief with a deep sense of sadness. Loss can also sometimes make us feel anxious or question our sense of purpose.
Therapy can help you understand and work through your emotions following a loss. Sometimes people may feel a sense of loss quite deeply and it may not be recognised even by themselves.
A recent example of this would be how people responded and adapted to the coronavirus. The loss of our normality and routine has impacted some people significantly.
Therapy can help you work through how you are impacted by a loss and how you also manage the impact of your loved ones losses.
