Many people struggle to cope with grief at a time of bereavement; experiencing feelings of overwhelming loss and sadness.

What takes many people by surprise is how strong the emotions can be, how they can change very quickly, and how long they last.

People around you may seem to think you should be ‘back to normal’ after a few weeks or months. You might appear to be your usual self to other people, but you know that on the inside, you’re not even sure what normal is anymore.

Everyone grieves in a way that is unique to them and their relationship with the person who has died. Well-intentioned people may say to you, ‘Time is a great healer.’ Sometimes, however, it can seem that life is more difficult as the weeks and months go by.

At Andrew Smith Funeral Services we know that no-one can understand exactly what your loss feels like to you. But we do understand that it’s sometimes easier to talk to someone outside of your friends and family about grief and the impact of bereavement on your life, and this is why we provide the following list of professional services.
