The loss of a loved one can lead to many different conditions, such as depression, anxiety, anger, or even PTSD. I will stress however that there is a grieving process and it is normal to feel low, angry and upset after the death of a family member, loved one or friend.
Saying that, in cases of grief, it is good to talk about your loss and also about the person you knew. CBT is first-and-foremost a talking therapy, that allows you a safe space to vent any feelings without judgement.
Using CBT for bereavement would first include an assessment that looks at your history, as well as your reasons for seeking out therapy. The number of sessions that you would attend is entirely up to you; it is important to go at your own pace and also have patience with yourself and the processes.
