Have you lost a parent or sibling?

Loosing a parent or sibling is extremely hard and can cause immense grief. Grief is a natural reaction to loosing someone close to you, but it often feels very heavy. Grief impacts people differently and causes different reactions. It can cause anger, fear, guilt, difficulty concentrating, changes in appetite and so on. These reactions can feel bewildering and you can feel overwhelmed by grief.

Many people feel lonely when they are grieving. It is heavy to carry grief on you own, so it can be a great help for many to find someone to talk to. It doesn’t take the grief away, but it can make it easier to carry.

Grief is easier to bear together

Berin offers you the chance to talk to someone who understands how you feel. We offer both individual counselling and groups for children and young people up to 29 years of age, who have lost parents or siblings. Before you attend counselling or a group we will invite you, along with one of your next of kin if you would like, for a chat about how Berin can help you.

In addition to individual and group sessions, we also offer family sessions, as well as advice and guidance about how best to help someone who has experienced loss for parents, next of kin, friends, spouses and people who through their work may need to support someone who is grieving.

Podcast about being a teenager and loosing a parent

Eg sakni teg (I miss you)is Berin’s podcast series in which we examine the subject of grief. We meet some of the people who come to Berin and hear their story. Lív Højsted Horsdal, who is a psychologist working with Berin, hosts the series and leads us through the episodes about grief, longing and hope. The purpose of the podcasts is to talk openly about how tough and senseless things can feel in the hope that you, who also miss someone, feel a little less lonely and different in your grief.
