Complicated Grief And Bereavement Counseling

bereavement-counselingGrief, loss, and bereavement are uncomfortable but unavoidable facets of life. The feelings you may have when experiencing grief can range from sad to angry to confused and more. You may even feel relieved, and then feel guilty for feeling relieved! Working through those feelings to recover from a loss is referred to as bereavement and it’s not always something that happens naturally. Sometimes, you need a little help to work through your grief and mourning and come to terms with the new realities of your life.

Grief and bereavement counseling can help you work through and make sense of your emotions so that they don’t dominate your life. Whatever you are feeling, bereavement counseling can guide you through it to a happier future.

Complicated Grief

Complicated Grief is more than just the traditional feelings of grief. In cases of Complicated Grief, feelings of sadness and loss persist and may even dominate your life long after the event has passed. If your feelings of grief have persisted for a year or longer, it’s time to talk to someone who can help you.

Therapies For Grief And Mourning

Everyone experiences loss and grieves differently but with empathy and therapy you can get through it. Therapies are highly personalized and designed to help you manage the stress that comes with grieving and loss as much as they help you comes to accept it. Some of the therapies that I use in my practice are:

  • Meditation
  • Relaxation
  • Memory Reflection
  • Talk Therapy
  • Family Therapy

These techniques can help you accept the loss and work through your pain, adjusting to life without your loved one. Yet, you will learn how to maintain a connection to your loved one while moving on without guilt or fear. You will be able to fully embrace your grief, experience mourning, and learn that it is okay to be sad (and feel how you-are-feeling).
