Loss and mourning

About loss and mourning

Loss and mourning, you think of the death of a loved one. But there are more moments you lose something that was precious to you, your marriage, the hope for a child or the loss of your job. Everyone knows that loss is part of life, but when it happens to you, you don’t always know how to deal with it.

The consequences of loss

The way you mourn depends on a number of factors, such as your age, the degree to which you are prepared for the loss, your inner strength and the support from the outside. Usually, mourning is an intense but also a long process. During that process, mourning takes a great deal of your available energy and attention. All kinds of physical and emotional problems are the result:

  • insomnia, little appetite,
  • fatigue, listlessness,
  • restlessness, palpitations, pain in the chest,
  • feelings of guilt, anger, despair,
  • gloom, sadness.

In all cases you have to learn to deal with the loss. That is never easy. Still, in most cases, together with family and friends, you can put things to rest after a while. But sometimes it is not possible to proceed with your normal life, you can also experience problems in your relationship with others or in your work situation. If the loss starts to control your life, it becomes too heavy. You just can’t get out and need guidance.

Treatment of loss and mourning

Losing something or someone can sometimes be so emotional and drastic that you cannot handle the mourning process alone. Family, friends, nobody can help you to get out of the disturbed process of natural mourning.

The guidance is intended for giving your loss a place in your daily life. We do the same for the direct and indirect consequences of that loss. We look very specifically for solutions that help you with your life.
