Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Most people will experience some form of loss in their lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Bereavement is a type of grief that involves the death of a loved one.

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 of grief can be physical, emotional or social.

A few common symptoms in these categories are:

Physical

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

Emotional

  • 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

No one way of grieving is better than any other. Every individual has unique needs and ways of processing their loss. Whatever your personal experience reaching out for help is the first step towards healing.
