Bespoke Bereavement Counselling and Treatment

A quick introduction to bereavement

Coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy, but for some, it can be a trigger for mental and physical health issues. At Psymplicity, we get it, and we’re here to help, using our three-step process:

  • Get the right diagnosis and a holistic bereavement treatment plan tailored to you
  • Receive specialist bereavement counselling and the right medical care to treat the symptoms restricting your life
  • Accept and deal with your grief and stop overwhelming sadness from draining your energy and preventing you from feeling happy and enjoying your life
  • We don’t just work with you to treat and manage the pain and suffering you are experiencing; our holistic approach means you’ll have a better understanding of how the loss affects you and how to manage it moving forward. 

What is bereavement counselling?

Death is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. Grief can be devastating, but bereavement counselling can be highly effective at helping you process your feelings. Here, we explore when you might benefit from bereavement counselling and what it involves.

What are the stages of bereavement?

You may be familiar with the five stages of grief, and while everyone deals with bereavement in their own way, they typically go through each of these stages, eventually achieving acceptance. The loss will never go away, but it does get easier with time, and understanding each stage can help you visualise the journey you’ll go on as you process your grief.

The Psymplicity approach to bereavement counselling

At Psymplicity Healthcare, we adopt a holistic approach that puts your wellbeing first. Firstly, we carry out a thorough assessment of your bereavement to understand how it affects you. From here, we’ll develop a tailored plan that takes your circumstances and medical history into account so that we can support you to move forward.

Meet our bereavement counselling specialists

Our bereavement counsellors have decades of combined experience in treating bereavement and have practised in leading institutions in the UK and beyond. Experts in their field, they are dedicated to keeping up to date with all the latest developments in psychiatry to deliver the best care for you — because we know that the right treatment combination can be truly transformative.

What is bereavement counselling?

Although death is very much a part of life, losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person can experience — regardless of whether the death was expected, sudden, recent or a long time ago. Grief is incredibly impactful when the person who passed away was a friend, family member or key figure in your life who provided a strong sense of love and support. A death can affect you in many ways and it sometimes triggers emotions and behaviour that others may deem unacceptable or wildly out of character. For example, if you had a conflicted relationship with someone who died before you had time to resolve your issues, you may experience an intense feeling of frustration or even anger.

The shock of a sudden death can be particularly difficult to deal with. In such cases, you may feel obligated to look after and protect your loved ones, only to neglect your own mental and physical health. This can make you feel disconnected, angry and depressed or cause you to bury yourself in work, or exercise to numb the grief. You may not process your feelings for many months or even years, and you may later experience a period of “prolonged grief”, where you lose your sense of identity and purpose, which can be truly disabling. This is where Psymplicity can help. No matter how you’re grieving, our experts can work with you to help overcome your suffering.

Psymplicity’s private bereavement counselling provides support and guidance and helps you to express your thoughts and feelings and how they are impacting your relationships, work and social life. No matter whether your loss was recent or a long time ago, we can help you process your sadness and the other feelings you might feel uncomfortable about admitting to others or even to yourself. 

Once we have offered you a diagnosis and assessment, we have a great team of psychotherapists and counsellors who will work alongside you to develop a solution that suits your needs. As well as being a source of comfort during a challenging time, they can also help you to move through the various stages of grief and forward with your life.

What are the stages of bereavement?

Everyone processes grief uniquely, but it tends to follow a pattern: the five stages of grief. While it’s natural to experience the emotions associated with each stage, being stuck on or skipping a step altogether can amplify your symptoms and keep you stuck in a painful cycle. Bereavement is a process, and it’s one that we can help you to navigate successfully.

The five stages of bereavement are as follows:


At Psymplicity Healthcare, we understand the impact of grief, and we’re here to help. Following an initial consultation and thorough assessment, we can help you come to terms with the death of a loved one and tackle any underlying condition that may have been caused by the loss.

The Psymplicity approach to bereavement counselling and treatment

At Psymplicity, we believe that the key to bereavement counselling is allowing you to explore your emotions while helping you to understand your grief. 

As part of your treatment we will ask you about the loss, your connection to the person that passed away and how you have felt since it happened. This will help them to establish what stage of bereavement you are at and develop a clear understanding of how to move forward. It can be difficult speaking about a loved one, especially if you’ve been trying to avoid processing your emotions to remain strong or because you don’t want to acknowledge the situation. 

We know this is an emotional time and we will never push you to move at a pace that you’re uncomfortable with. 

During your bereavement counselling sessions, we will help you to: 

It can be distressing to discuss bereavement, but your emotional responses will help your therapist to better understand you, your situation and, most importantly, how they can help you to deal with your grief. 

Our specialist bereavement counsellors, psychiatrists and psychotherapists have many years of experience and vast knowledge of the impact of grief. With their help, you will be able to process your emotions and improve the quality of your life, health, relationships and career.

Your bereavement treatment plan

Following our in-depth assessment and subsequent bereavement counselling, you’ll benefit from a personalised and balanced treatment approach that prioritises managing your grief and reducing the impact it has on your life.

Step One

To ensure that you get the best results from private bereavement counselling, we begin with a consultation to discuss your situation and gain a better understanding of how it is impacting your life.

Step Two

Our experts will evaluate your needs and create a bespoke treatment plan which will normally include grief counselling. Throughout your sessions, we will help you to understand your emotions and come to terms with the loss, and provide the specialist support you need to move forward with your life.

Step Three

Bereavement counselling is typically a short to mid-term solution, but continued support is always available for those who require it. We suggest follow-up sessions to review your progress, discuss any concerns and receive additional treatment as needed. Remember, we’re always here when you need us.
