 Grief Counselling 

Specialising in grief counselling for adults, Your Sunset offers fee for service counselling sessions via a home visit service in the Canberra region or Zoom if you are further afield.

 

Grief, loss and bereavement come in many forms throughout our lives -

 

Death of a person

When someone we know dies, there can be a range of emotions and reactions. Sometimes our loss isn't publicly recognised which can compound these feelings.

 

Pregnancy loss

The loss of a pregnancy regardless of the circumstances is often a heartbreaking experience. This is not only for the woman, but for male partners as well, who are often left without direct support.

 

Death of a companion animal

Our pets have become integral parts of our family units and their deaths (or trip to the rainbow bridge, as some call it), can leave us with a deep emotional void.

 

A natural disaster

Flood, fire and drought... we truly have it all in this great land. When the adrenaline of the emergency wears off and everyone else has got on with their lives - you can be left feeling completely lost on what happens next to rebuild after a natural disaster. Lets talk about it.

 

Moving to a new city, state or country

Relocating to Canberra for your dream job or university placement, whilst exciting can also leave you feeling lost and disconnected and with feelings of sadness for the life you left behind.

 

The end of a relationship

Throughout life we experience many relationships, some are intense and when they end can leave us feeling empty and with many unanswered questions. 

 

A diagnosis

You or someone close to you may have received a medical diagnosis that has changed your life plan, it doesn't need to be a life limiting illness to throw your world upside down and leaving your grappling with life's big questions.

 

Becoming a carer

Sometimes someone you know gets sick and suddenly you find yourself navigating the world of being a carer. This radical change of role can impact people in unique and unexpected ways.

  

Job loss

Job losses happen for many reasons and can leave us questioning our identity and what comes next. Often, especially when unexpected we also lose a network of friendly colleagues which can make the loss feel greater.

 

Retirement

It seems we work our whole lives to reach retirement but when it arrives we often realise we weren't ready! A lot of our identity and routine are tied up with work. Retirement is a time of readjustment and giving yourself time to decide what comes next.

Home Visits

There are times in our lives when we just don't want to go out! When you are grieving everything can seem hard.
