What is Pet bereavement Counselling?

Pet Bereavement Counselling is specific counselling for those who have or will soon lose a much loved pet. When we lose a pet we often feel alone in our sorrow, not wanting to be judged by friends, employers and family who may be sympathetic but don't want to upset you by talking to you about your loss.

As an Advanced Pet Bereavement counsellor, in addition to studying counselling and grief, I have also extensively studied the human-animal bond and the psychology which makes us feel the way we do after the loss of a pet and why other family members may react differently to you. That is important because it can affect your personal relationships if misunderstood.
