What is Grief?
Grief is a natural reaction to any form of loss, especially someone’s death. It goes beyond mere sadness and often evokes feelings of confusion, doubt, guilt, anger, and other complex emotions.
There’s no right way to grieve — everyone reacts to loss differently and grieves in their own way. There’s also no normal duration for grief; it may take months or years to accept the loss of a loved one. Nonetheless, most people can indeed recover from loss with the help of a great social support network and healthy coping mechanisms. Grief counseling provides the necessary support for those finding it hard to recover.
You may have heard of the stages of grief, which can be challenging for anyone, but grief counseling is recommended especially for individuals whose grief:
Interferes with daily activities
Causes feelings of guilt or depression
Makes it harder to carry on with their own lives
Causes problems in existing relationships
There is Hope.
Apart from helping you cope with your loss, grief counseling lets you:
Treat your trauma
Express your emotions
Address feelings of guilt you may harbor
Build a strong support system to help you carry on
Come to terms with your new reality
Living with the pain of unresolved loss is unhealthy and can lead to complicated grief, which is more severe, long-lasting, and difficult to remedy. Online grief counseling enables those experiencing grief to seek treatment in the comfort & familiarity of their own homes.
