We all experience feelings of sadness, guilt, regret and anger at different times in our lives, due to bereavement or grief. Those feelings can sometimes become overwhelming and it is at these times that professional help can make all the difference.
A patient, understading and analytical approach, identifying the triggers for the feelings – which are often very deep-rooted – is the starting point to recovery. Everyone is different and counselling should take as long as necessary to help the individual to deal with his or her own particular issues so that they can begin to move forward and embrace the future with positivity.
I can give you effective ways of learning to cope with the stressors associated with loss and how to manage symptoms.
My past experience includes working as a Counsellor for Ashgate Hospice in the Patient and Family Support Team. Suicide Awareness, supporting people who have been affected by suicide or suicidal feelings. Survivors of abuse that can find the effects to be devastating, with feelings of anger, low self-esteem and trust issues.

Patient listening combined with expert help. This is the Andrea Emmerson way.
