A lot of people who have just recently lost a loved one are now turning to bereavement counselling for help. Bereavement is the time spent to grieve by a person when he or she has lost someone close to them. They mourn the loss of a family member, a spouse, or close friend or colleague. Death is permanent and a dead person can never come back to life. That’s the reason that the death of a loved one can probably be the hardest thing to accept.
