Grief Counseling

Grief is an emotional response to any kind of loss. Perhaps the loss is the death of a loved one, a divorce, a job, a pet, one's financial security, or safety due to trauma. 

Feelings of sadness can be overwhelming and difficult to cope with and overcome. It is important to be patient with yourself and others during this process, as it is a normal part of healing.

Common Symptoms of Grief 

There is no orderly process for moving through the stages of anger, denial, and acceptance. Everyone experiences loss differently based on personality, culture, beliefs, and many other factors.

  • Shock and disbelief: numbness to the event, disbelief that it happened, denial, or expectation of suddenly seeing the deceased again.
  • Sadness: Crying, feeling of emptiness, hopelessness, depression, longing, loneliness.
  • Guilt: Regret for something not said or omitted, a sense of responsibility for a death or event, or shame for being relieved by someone's death.
  • Anger: blaming someone, including God, for an injustice.
  • Anxiety: Feelings of fear, helplessness, anxiety, or panic attacks.
  • Physical symptoms: fatigue, nausea, weight gain/loss, pain, insomnia.

Dealing With Grief and Loss

An important part of healing is knowing that you are not alone. Seek support from friends and family, or join a grief support group. Sharing your loss can help ease the grieving process. Remember to take care of yourself. Eat, sleep, and exercise even when you're too stressed or tired to do so. 

You may wish to seek the help of a professional therapist. A therapist can help you process your intense emotions in a safe environment.
