Grief Counseling

Grief Counseling is not a light-hearted topic. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger, and deep, deep sadness.

The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors.

Common symptoms can be physical, emotional, or social.

A few common symptoms in these categories are:

Physical Grief

  • Crying and sighing
  • Headaches
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue

Emotional Grief

  • Feelings of sadness and yearning
  • Feelings of worry or anger
  • Feelings of frustration or guilt

Social

  • Feeling detached from others
  • Self-isolation from social contact
  • Behaving in ways that are not normal for you

Every grieving experience is different. A person may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, yet not be able to get out of bed after the loss of someone else. Whatever your personal symptoms are, grief counseling is proven to help.

Five-Step Solution Process

Step 1: Call to schedule your first appointment. The majority of people do not make it this far. Once you complete this step, there are only 4 more to go!

Step 2: Understand your pain points. The first four sessions must be consecutive in order to fully understand your pain points. This will give you time to fully express your concerns and allow time to build rapport.

Step 3: Identify which skills and techniques you need to develop in order to move forward.

Step 4: This is where the hard work begins, taking action using the skills and techniques you have developed in order to move past your pain points.

Step 5: This final step occurs when you have moved past your pain points and are now looking forward to life. This is when planning and maintenance begin. In order to continue the forward movement, specific and detailed plans regarding effective use of the skills you have built will need to be laid out to encourage you to be self-sufficient.

How long will these 5 steps take? On average, clients go through this process in 3 to 6 months. Everyone is different so there is always room for more or less time as needed by each individual.
