Meet Kieran – The Office Junior, Suffering From Grief


Do you know someone like Kieran, who’s suffering from grief?

This is Kieran, the Office Junior.  He’s struggling to come to terms with the loss of his and Ryan’s friend.  His gran died last year from cancer and he’s Ellie’s son so he is scared to death that she has cancer and is going to die too.

He’s become really anxious.  He questions everything he’s doing and is taking up a lot of Colin’s time asking for reassurance on what he does.  He’s also prone to being off sick at the slightest thing – this year alone he’s had upset stomach’s, sore throats, headaches and even though Colin’s done a back to work interview because it’s different things you don’t know what to do.

How can you help Kieran?

Kieran may be suffering from grief and anxiety, his illnesses seem to be “psychosomatic” as a result of the anxiety.

It’s well recognised that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a good treatment for this anxiety.

Getting help, sooner rather than later is better.

Kieran may go to his GP for help, however, the waiting lists may be long.
