Grief & Bereavement Counseling
Bereavement and grief are difficult topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger, and deep sadness.
The process of adapting to a loss varies from person to person, depending on their background, beliefs, relationship to the person who passed, and other factors.
Symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional, or social.
A few common symptoms in these categories are:
- Loss of appetite
- Difficulty sleeping
- Sadness and yearning
- Worry or anger
- Frustration or guilt
- Feeling detached from others
- Self-isolation from social contact
- Behaving in ways that are abnormal for you
Every grief 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 and bereavement counseling have been proven to help.
