A word about grief
We understand that grief is not a linear process that happens after you lost a loved one to death. Grief can also be anticipatory (when you grieve the future loss of someone or something) and compounded (when one loss triggers the memory of another loss). On another note, loss does not only mean "loss by death". You can feel loss after a beloved animal physically got lost, moved out with your ex-partner or you had to put it up for adoption. We recognise that grief and loss are complex issues and we will approach every individual case with care.
