Grief Counselling Treatment

Grief is a normal reaction when we lose someone or something close to us. Grief can develop after the death of family member or friend, a relationship breakup, the death of a pet, the loss of a job, or other losses because of disease or accident. Usually, as time passes our grief softens and we can reengage with our lives even if there is some lingering tender sadness.

Is it time to consider grief counselling?

How would you know when it may be helpful or advisable to seek out grief counselling? Here are some things to consider:

  • You are feeling stuck in grief and overwhelmed by it.
  • Grief from a major loss lasted far longer than you wanted it to.
  • You are experiencing disbelief or emotional numbness over the loss.
  • You avoid people, situations, or places because they remind you of the deceased.
  • You feel a persistent desire to die in order to be with the deceased.
  • You feel confused about your role in life, or your identity because of the loss.
  • Your friends or family feeling helpless because their support is not enough.

Our grief counsellors know how to be sympathetic and useful. They will fully respect your feelings and help you come to terms with what has happened, as you feel ready to do so.
