Grief Counselling & Therapy
Grieving the loss of a loved one can be a difficult process. People may also grieve for years without finding temporary relief. Grieving often involves difficult emotions ranging from sadness to anger. Some people find comfort in sharing their feelings, while others prefer to be alone with their feelings. Self-care and social support can be vital to the recovery process. And feeling occasional happiness does not mean the person is done grieving.
Prolonged symptoms may include:
Intense sadness/emotional pain
Feelings of emptiness and hopelessness
Preoccupation with the deceased or with circumstances of the death
Difficulty engaging in happy memories of the deceased
Detachment and isolation
How therapy can help:
Therapy is an opportunity to explore feelings and memories without judgment. A therapist is also able to help the person in mourning recognize and manage depressive symptoms. You do not have to endure your grief alone.
