Bereavement counselling after 17 years?

My DH lost his mum 23 years ago when he was a teenager, and his dad 17 years ago, just a couple of weeks before our wedding when he was 24.

He used to be a fun, happy go lucky, easy going person with a can-do attitude. He has become more pessimistic, negative and lacking the can-do attitude as he's got older.

Tonight he said to me he feels like all the fun's been kicked out of him. He traces it back to losing his dad, who he was close to.

Would bereavement counselling be of any use to him at this stage?

Counselling might well be helpful and he could talk about his loss during the sessions, that might be better than bereavement counselling. Sorry to hear this but he has insight into what caused his problems and that is a good sign.
