Anticipatory Grief (22-11-17)
Grief can affect our lives in numerous ways. With no clear route to follow, our response to a loss is likely to be personal and unique to our individual nature. With anticipatory grief, feelings of grief develop before, rather than after a loss (Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 2009). As well as seeking support from friends and family, counselling may assist with anticipatory grief through sharing your story and processing some of the intense emotions related to preparing for a loss ahead.
