Elephant in The Room

Psychotherapy & Counselling

helping you adapt to life after loss


We all experience losses in life – not just when someone dies but when we lose anything that is important to us: our relationships, our dreams of having a family, our health, our home, our job, our independence, our pets, and our hopes or expectations.

Often we are able to grieve for those losses and adjust, but sometimes we are left feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, angry, guilty, ashamed, withdrawn, or numb for many months or even years later.

Adjusting to losses in life is not about ‘getting over’ them but about finding ways to live a life that includes them.

I am a BACP Accredited Psychotherapist & Counsellor specialising in loss, grief and trauma.

Together we can work to make sense of your loss, to relieve intrusive thoughts and images, and to better manage your thoughts and feelings; helping you to stop feeling stuck, to adjust to events and changes in your life, and to begin to embrace life more fully.

Get in touch to see how we can work together to help you adapt to life after loss.
