Grief & Loss support group

Loss can come in many forms – we can grieve over anything from the death of a loved one, to the loss of a job, home, pet or relationship. Even losing our sense of independence or freedom can lead to feelings of grief. While these emotions are completely normal, that doesn’t mean they’re easy to cope with, and it can take some time to adjust and move on. At Lifeline Northern Beaches, that’s what we’re here to help you do.

How do you know if you need support?

If grief and loss is interfering with your life, work or relationships, then it’s time to seek help. There are times that we simply can’t do it alone, and nor should we have to! Signs that you may be struggling with grief include:

 

  • Frequent crying, shock, denial or numbness
  • Anger, guilt, shame, blame or relief
  • Loneliness, isolation or withdrawal
  • Physical health problems, such as headaches
  • Changes in eating and sleeping patterns
  • Increased alcohol, smoking or drug use
  • Feelings of hopelessness, or thoughts of suicide or self-harm

How our support group works

Through our Grief & Loss support group, you can understand your grief, and learn how to harness your inner strengths to move on. We cover topics including:

  • Understanding grief
  • Anniversary dates
  • Anger and guilt
  • Physical and emotional reactions
  • Recovery
  • Lessons learned
