Family & Bereavement Counselling

Family & Bereavement Counselling

When we lose a loved one, be it due to an illness or a sudden and unexpected passing, we are often left with a large hole to try and fill.

When we lose a loved one, be it due to an illness or a sudden and unexpected passing, we are often left with a large hole to try and fill. At U Matter Dad, we deal with loss and tragedy as part of our bereavement counselling services often, while putting in place the appropriate processes to deal with such a difficult time in your life. With any loss and subsequent grieving process, you may be left with unanswered questions that only snowball and psychologically manifest in a number of harmful ways. You may feel a sense of regret, guilt, despair, depression, anger, fear, or a combination in the face of death, while struggling to find any semblance of your former self.

At U Matter Dad, we understand and we are to help.

Over the years of assisting our clients with their mental health issues and associated struggles, we have seen some erratic and uncontrollable behaviour as a result. Furthermore, and when we are talking about a death in the family or that of a close friend, it’s quite common to see those affected turn to certain vices or develop negative behavioural patterns in order to seek some form of escape.  The reality of dealing with such a loss simply becomes too much to bear, and we alternatively look for a way out. Alas, it’s human, but it’s not the answer. At U Matter Dad, we will be there for you every step of the way to ensure a healthy and transparent process, and offer an environment that will help you heal. While the nature of bereavement is irreversible, dealing with the aftermath is what is important for not only yourself and your mental wellbeing, but those around you.

The ripple effect of a damaged mind can be significant.

To help with this, we offer a range of mental health services here at U Matter Dad, including both individual and couple therapy, support for dads, as well as the service we’ve been talking about on this particular page. Life can be a difficult maze at the best of times, and a sudden or painful death can only make it seem harder. That’s why it’s so important to open up if you’re feeling something dark or emotionally infringing, in order to put the necessary steps in place to help remedy it. While your family or friends should always be the first point of call, seeking the help of a professional such as U Matter Dad will go a long way in helping you overcome whatever it is that has you feeling unsettled.

Together, we can find the light again. Talk to us today.
