All kinds of loss are extremely common as people get older, with the loss of a spouse being the largest category in bereavement. The loss of a child is also a major bereavement which can be extremely painful to bear.
The grief from the loss of a loved one most people eventually recover from but protracted grief over a period of years can be complicated by clinical depression and can benefit from counsellling and psychotherapy.
In some clients it is the failure to grieve which is at the root of their low mood, and being able to talk through their grief with an experienced counsellor can be of great help in coming to terms with their loss.
