Grief & Bereavement Counseling
Bereavement and grief aren’t lighthearted topics. Bereavement is the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. Grief is a reaction for any loss. Both have a wide range of emotions like fear, anger and deep sadness.
The process of adjusting to loss is different from person to person. It depends on our background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other details.
Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.
A few common symptoms in these categories are:
- Crying and sighing
- Loss of appetite
- Difficulty sleeping
- Feelings of sadness and yearning
- Feelings of worry or anger
- Feelings of frustration or guilt
- Feeling detached from others
- Self-isolation from social contact
- Behaving in ways that are not normal for you
Each grief experience is different. A person may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, and not be able to get out of bed after the another loss. Whatever your symptoms are, grief and bereavement counseling helps.
