Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a loved one. You can tell yourself you can handle anything that comes your way, but grief is a condition that takes hold and often won’t let go for a while. At Counseling Works in Aurora, our therapists are sensitive to your loss and will provide you with effective grief counseling that will comfort you.
The grieving process will take you through a river of emotions, not just sadness. You will feel sadness, but you will also feel anger, guilt, yearning, and resentment. For many people, these are feelings that are not exhibited much in everyday life, but when you lose someone you love forever, the internal misery often lasts much longer than expected.
Nearly 50 years ago Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross defined the five stages of grief, which is still widely used by therapists today. Indeed, everyone is unique and grieves in their way, and Kubler-Ross’s five stages serve as a framework, not a specific step-by-step grieving guide. The steps usually happen out of order and bounce back and forth.
