Grief & Loss

Grief and loss are deep emotions we go through when we lose someone we love, a meaningful relationship, or when undergoing a significant life change.
Grief is how we feel when we experience this loss. Each person grieves differently, and there is no one "right" way to grieve. We may feel sadness, anger, guilt, confusion, and sometimes even relief. Grief can also have physical symptoms like fatigue, changes in appetite, or sleep disturbances. Loss, on the other hand, refers to the actual event or circumstances that result in the absence of something or someone that was once significant or meaningful in our life.
Loss can take many forms, such as:
  • Bereavement: The death of a loved one, including family members, friends, or pets.
  • Relationship Breakup: The end of a romantic relationship, marriage, or a close friendship.
  • Job Loss: The termination of employment which can be emotionally and financially distressing.
  • Health Issues: The loss of physical or mental abilities due to illness, injury, or a medical condition.
  • Miscarriage or Stillbirth: The loss of an expected child before or shortly after birth.
It's important to know that everyone grieves differently, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Psychologists and support systems can help people cope with grief and loss, providing guidance and assistance during tough times. If you need this support, please contact us at CCP Psychology.
