Grief and Loss

Grief is the emotion we feel when we lose something we held dear to us. Grief happens when we lose a loved one, face financial loss, loss of a pet. Grief can occur during the ageing process, when a relationship breaks down, or a child leaves home. The length of time we experience grief for is as unique as the way we grieve. Depending on our personality, the culture we belong to, and the nature of your loss. On this page there are some videos to help in understanding grief.


One of the most challenging things to deal with in life is grief. Quest for Life provides a safe space where you can be with your grief, understand it more deeply and incorporate it into your life.
