Loss and Grief: Sitting with a grieving client.

 

One of the biggest challenges for any therapist can be sitting with a heavily grieving client. There can be a strong impulse to try to help, to try to ‘’ímprove’’ or some way attempt to ‘fix’’ an unfixable situation. We live in a culture of ‘moving on’, which can isolate the grieving person even further, sometimes with catastrophic consequences.

 

Grieving, is a process. Whether it be the loss of a home, a marriage, the striking finality of death, or even an addiction, loss can be the most difficult emotion for a therapist to sit with. One of the main frustrations is around knowing whether or not we are being in anyway effective.

What our Students Say

“My experience with PCI was the best decision in my life, I would rate PCI 10. I'm not saying it was easy, especially starting a new career at the age of 50, but I got through with a lot of hard work and dedication. Liam McCarthy and Josephine Murphy were an inspiration and all the other Tutors I had during the four years. Since I got my Degree I have been so busy counselling, only last week I was offered another new job, its amazing. Next year I will be 70 and hopefully the work will continue.”
