Bereavement

Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period - everyone must learn to cope in their own way. Our bereavement support is not just for loss through death but loss through many other different life events. Migrants have lost opportunities, family and oftentimes everything that they hold dear . Migrant families are often isolated and alone in a foreign country.
Grief, although normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways. Some people get angry, some people withdraw further into themselves and some people become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious - like depression.

Bereavement support may be able to provide support during these very difficult times. Talking about the loss often allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes - good and bad. Keeping things bottled up or denying the sadness could prolong the pain. Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward.
We hold special bereavement courses for small groups of up to 15 delegates
