Grief and Loss are common human experiences that do not feel very common. Coping can be difficult and support can be very helpful. Grief and loss can sometimes cause a person to isolate themselves causing a sense of loneliness. If you are struggling with a loss counseling can be helpful to provide a safe supportive place. Grief and loss counseling does not always mean talking about the loss. You are not alone and as painful as grief and the loss feel you do not have to do this by yourself.
Each person experiences grief in different ways. Grief can come from the loss of someone or something important in your life.. A death of a loved one or a break up in a relationship can bring grief. Parenting can experience grief as your children grow. Grief can be the result of even experiences which the change is positive but you can be left with feelings of sadness or sorrow.
Grief can be experienced in anger, denial, bargaining, sorrow, sadness, depression, or numbness. Everyone experiences grief in different ways and there is no right or wrong way to grieve.
If you are impacted by a loss partnering with a counselor could add extra support. Implementing a self care plan can help provide support for your physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational health.
