Losing a Companion
For many of us, our pets are part of our family. They give us unconditional love, share special times and we make happy memories with them. So when our companion becomes ill or we face the prospect of losing them, it can be an emotionally challenging time.
Whilst our friends and family know we love our animals, it may be the case that they do not truly understand how pet bereavement can impact our lives. The Rainbow Bridge Counselling service provides a safe, supportive and caring space for you to share anything and everything that your companion meant to you.
How Counselling Can Help
Grief is a complex emotion that everyone experiences in their own unique way. Speaking with a qualified counsellor who understands what you're going through can help you find comfort during this difficult time. Losing a pet can trigger many different emotions and impact your life in a number of ways. Counselling can be particularly helpful if you find that:
Your sadness affects your daily activities and relationships
You feel a sense of hopelessness
You feel physically unwell
Your therapist can provide a listening ear to work through these difficult experiences, a chance to share your beloved memories and can offer you support both in your grief and in any other issues that may arise due to your loss.
