I think it will be individualised depending on how someone needs to be grieving and coping with the loss. For some people, it might be more focussed on helping them to accept the reality and to feel the feelings associated with that loss, because for some of us, the initial reaction to grief is just to cut off and not be able to accept the reality, not be able to feel the feelings. Some people might be more focussed on connecting with emotions. For other people, it might be more about focussing… trying to move on with life and rebuild, rebuild a life and start thinking about where, where, where can I go from here. And it might be that both of those things are relevant at different stages.
