Grief arises out of LOVE
Grieving due to the loss, or anticipated loss, of a beloved animal companion can be a very difficult and emotional experience.
Underlying our deep grief is a deep love for our animal companion .
Our connection with our animal is on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Why seek support?
Grieving due to the loss of a pet is unique!
Losing a beloved animal can lead to a profound, even traumatic sense of sadness and loss. Many describe the loss of a pet as worse than the loss of a significant human relationship.
When an animal is ill or nearing their end of life you may be overwhelmed with sadness, fear and uncertainty. There may be difficult decisions around end of life care for your animal and euthanasia which can cause great upset. I can help you navigate through this emotional time, enabling you to come to decisions based on compassion, love, understanding and respect for your animal companion.
Pet bereavement is unique in that many people have to make decisions about ending their animals suffering (euthanasia) which can be very upsetting, causing one to question their decisions and worry that they have made a mistake.
The loss of an animal companion may not always be due to their passing on. Loss can be felt for many reasons other than death, and this can cause difficult feelings and further compound your grief. See Understanding Grief and Pet Loss for more about this.
Following the loss of your beloved animal, you will likely find that your usual routine has changed, your home may feel different. and empty. Indeed your life changes in an instant and there will be a period of adjustment. It is important to be gentle and kind with yourself, practice self-care and be patient with yourself.
Grief is an individual experience, not 'one size fits all'.
It's okay not to be okay!
